New Zealand Food & Dining
New Zealand is known for its wonderful variety of foods, and is most highly regarded for its lamb, cheese, seafood and wine. In fact, foodie tours have become an increasingly popular way to get acquainted with both the geographic and culinary landscapes of this special country.
New Zealand is becoming increasingly more multi-cultural and in the main cities, food and restaurant choices extend from traditional New Zealand fare to every ethnic cuisine you can think of. While the choices may not be as plentiful in smaller communities or in rural areas, there are still many interesting options to be found. Communities enjoy showcasing locally produced ingredients and these fresh foods can be found in inviting cafes or local markets.
Fish stands are another popular way to sample the country’s fresh seafood. It doesn’t have to be a fancy venue either as some of the tastiest fish and scallops can be found in these simple little coastal shops. No matter what New Zealand food you find yourself enjoying, the wonderful flavours are best released when accompanied by a fruity New Zealand white or elegant red.
