Here are some of the most interesting food shows you can enjoy during this festival.
This is one of the companies that really impressed us. It offers healthy and organic food, using sea vegetables such as sea weeds. These vegetables are very nutritious and widely used in the Asian cuisine. Pacific Harvest offers a great variety of snacks, soups, pancakes and herbs, made of these vegetables. They are extremely good for nutrition and have a great number of health benefits.
Alchemy beverages is also a company that presents their products every year. One of their most interesting products is Honey Wine, made of fermented honey and water. It has an amazing sweet taste and it is a really great complementary to some fine cheese.
Silk Road is another great food company, taking part in this famous event. In fact, it is a typical example of the international character of the whole festival, since the products are inspired by the first European to follow the Great Silk Road to China – Marco Polo. The food they offer is various – from spicy, traditional Chinese dishes, to Indian and Vietnamese food.
Barry’s Bay Cheese
This is the only cheese company in New Zealand, producing vintage cheddar aged in cloth and wax. The required level of maturity can take up to three years until it leaves the factory. At the Food Show you will be able to taste one of their finest products.
At last but not at least, we highly recommend you to visit the 45-minute food show of Richard Till. You will have a lot of fun, listening to his funny stories and enjoy his half-an-hour food demonstration.
