Kia Makona! All Black fans and rugby results aside, no one can argue that New Zealand is renown for their beautiful fine wines and world famous selection of seafood and meat from New Zealand farmers. So when Peppers Seminyak and Peppers Clearwater Christchurch celebrate the best of New Zealand during this week-long culinary collaboration right under our noses (literally), you’d be mad to miss out.
Here’s what you need to know about this Kiwi gourmet calendar, showcasing the best food and drinks from NZ’s south island. Because the why – any seven day celebration of New Zealand’s epicurean delights, let alone when paired with crisp cool NZ wines – is a no brainer.
