“As a hub for international students the New Zealand Centre for Culinary and Hospitality Excellence – Te Pataka Kai o Aotearoa ki Te Ao, is New Zealand’s leading training centre for culinary and hospitality studies. We extend a warm welcome to visitors to the Capital. Our campus is open to all those attending the International Education Conference today and tomorrow.
