The Food Show Christchurch, 6 – 8 April, Horncastle Arena

The Food Show is returning to Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena in 2018, bringing Cantabrians a chance to see a star chef line-up with entertaining cooking demonstrations across the weekend.

Leading the charge at the Food Show’s NEFF Cooking Theatre will be two of New Zealand’s most favourite female foodies – Masterchef winners Nadia Lim and Chelsea Winter. Since coming into Kiwis’ lives via our TV screens, both of these stand-out women have gone on to achieve incredible things in the food world; their range of popular cookbooks gracing the kitchen benchtops of thousands of New Zealanders!

Visitors to this year’s show will also be able to seek inspiration from the likes of Australian My Kitchen Rules finalist and clean living cook Luke Hines, Annabelle ‘The Cuddly Cook’ White, Cantabrian restaurateur Jonny Schwass and local chef Giuilio Sturla of Roots Restaurant.

Local cake guru Anna Worthington, who has soared to foodie fame in Christchurch thanks to her incredibly beautiful one-off creations at her Cakes By Anna outfit, will also be spilling the secrets of her renowned cake making for aspiring bakers! Anna rounds off the line-up of a weekend that is bound to whet the appetite of any food lover.

Once you’ve soaked up some inspiration, peruse all the different and delectable zones the show offers, including the Cargo Brewery Beer Garden, Countdown Fresh Market, Ceres Organics Healthy Hub Kitchen, Waterthins Cheese Alley and Artisan Village. Whether you’re looking for the most nourishing new health finds, rich indulgences, or a little bit of everything – come along and discover the delights that await!
