Using plates of food to tell our stories has always been baked into the DNA of Eat New Zealand.
Many of you will remember ‘Talking Plates’ and associated hashtags that capture in simple ways values that are complex and hugely important to us as a movement.
From #EatTheWholeFish to #NZNativeIngredients, the conversation has evolved to include #LotsOfLittle and #RepurposeTheSurplus. Ideas such as #KnowYourFarmer #KnowYourFisher #EatNZGrains #GrowFoodCommunities and our perennial #WildFoodLove are hard-wired into who we are.
So it’s an exciting moment to announce we’re letting the Kaitaki our next generation food leaders, loose on the Talking Plates idea.
It’s also exciting to announce they’ll be led by Eat New Zealand founder chef Giulio Sturla.
You can experience these plates, along with their own vision of the future, in Wellington on Thursday 11th May as part of Wellington on a Plate.
It will be a meal you’ll be discussing around many future tables, make sure you’re at this one!
