‘Kiwi’s Best’ comes to Fieldays

‘Kiwi’s Best’ comes to Fieldays

All of our best home-grown food and beverage is destined for export markets, right? Wrong! As part of Fieldays 40th anniversary celebrations, ‘Kiwi’s Best’ comes to Fieldays to showcase the very best products coming out of our farmers and growers.

‘Kiwi’s Best’ is a new marquee, situated at the heart of Fieldays, that will feature some of New Zealand’s finest food and beverage products in a package encompassing sampling, sales and cooking demonstrations, all under the watchful eye of celebrity chef, Al Brown. Brown will be familiar to many as co-owner of top Wellington restaurant, Logan Brown, and host of popular television series ‘Hunger for the Wild’. Brown enjoys eating just about anything, but most of all, simple food, cooked perfectly and believes that more time should be spent pleasing the palate than garnishing to please the eye. Chef Brown has created some special ‘Kiwi’s Best’ recipes using ingredients available from ‘Kiwi’s Best’ exhibitors, encouraging visitors to watch the demonstrations, pick up a recipe card and the ingredients and enjoy ‘Kiwi’s Best’ in their own homes.

Brown’s exclusive recipes will be supported by a packed demonstration and tasting schedule in the Kitchen Studio kitchen from other ‘Kiwi’s Best’ exhibitors including NZ Pork, The Game Keeper, Kaweka Food Company and Southern Clams, featured on Country Calendar in April. Kiwi’s Best is proudly supported by L&P – World famous in New Zealand.

Fieldays’ 40th anniversary event kicks off next Wednesday, 11 June 2008 and runs through to Saturday 14 June 2008 with gates open from 8am to 5pm daily.
