Plates Of Plenty Challenge

Take a trip to Te Moananui ā Toi, where abundance and seasonality meet innovation and flair. Thanks to our rich horticultural history, fertile seas and volcanic soils, our region serves up some of the freshest flavours in Aotearoa and that’s the way it’s always been.

As well as the epic line-up of festival events, make sure to check out some of the eateries that are taking part in the Plates of Plenty Challenge. These eateries will produce a dish over the course of the festival which heroes a handful of favourite local products.

The Plates of Plenty Challenge dishes items will be judged by a panel of experts. You will also be able to cast your vote on your favourite dish by voting for the “People’s Choice Award” and go in the draw for prizes.
