Peppers Gourmet Food Trail Turns the Spotlight North

Peppers Gourmet Food Trail Turns the Spotlight on New Zealand’s North

The Peppers Gourmet Food Trail – a national initiative by luxury hotel group, Peppers, to celebrate regional produce and fine wines – is turning the spotlight on the Northland region and inviting guests to indulge in the gourmet delights of New Zealand’s far north this summer at Peppers Carrington Resort.

Set in the middle of a 3000-acre estate on the Karikari Peninsula, Peppers Carrington Resort is an ecologically planned property located on four breath-taking kilometres of secluded white sand coastline and 900 acres of restored wetlands. Karikari Estate, New Zealand’s northernmost winery, is also situated adjacent to the resort grounds.

The Peppers Carrington Resort Gourmet Food Trail package enables guests to experience the produce of Northland from paddock to plate with a welcome tasting plate showcasing a selection of local gourmet treats plus a self-drive Food Trail map highlighting the top local artisans personally selected by the Peppers team. A delicious breakfast for two in Carrington Restaurant is also included in the package, priced from $459* per night, staying in a Lodge Room.

Visit www.peppers.co.nz/carrington or phone +64 9 408 7222 for bookings and information.

The Peppers Carrington Resort Gourmet Food Trail utilises the freshest ingredients from on and around the property creatively showcasing the abundance of fine produce available in New Zealand’s Northland. Scallops from the beds of Karikari Beach, oysters from Rangaunu Harbour, mussels from Houhora Harbour, local cheese, fresh fish, saffron and many other ingredients from small organic producers.

The multitude of delicious flavours can be experienced in the relaxed dining room setting of Carrington Restaurant or at Karikari Estate’s winery café from menus prepared by award winning head chef Munish Raja. Chef Munish is recognised by the New Zealand Restaurant Association as one of the top six chefs in Northland. His signature dish, Duo of Beef features ingredients from a number of local food producers accessible to Peppers Carrington Resort guests through the Gourmet Food Trail.

Food Trail Map options include a visit to Mahoe Farmhouse Cheese Factory in the picturesque Bay of Islands where Peppers guests can enjoy a complimentary tasting of their multi award winning ‘very old Edam’ and extra creamy ‘Belrose’.

Or for foodies with a passion for exceptional quality meat, a visit to Roger Windelbourne, Peppers Carrington Resort’s local meat supplier, is a must to pick up a selection of bacon and salami cured with Roger’s own old fashioned recipe.

The Food Trail Map also opens doors to exclusive recipes, tastings and behind the scenes production methods of Due North Foods’ ‘Afronesian’ jams and relishes, award winning Karikari Olive Oil and 100 per cent natural Haines Honey.

Peppers Carrington Resort is one of seven New Zealand Peppers properties which are located in Martinborough, Rotorua, Queenstown, Abel Tasman National Park near Nelson, Christchurch and Lake Tekapo.

The Peppers Gourmet Food Trail offers a host of events, packages and gastronomic offerings across Peppers Retreats and Resorts in New Zealand and Australia. Visit www.peppers.co.nz/food for more information.
