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.
