New Zealand Celebration

All finalists will be flown to Nelson, New Zealand for the Awards Celebration this October, including an artisan producer tour of the Marlborough region, home of New Zealand King Salmon.
The best entries will be featured in a book of sustainable food stories, published later this year.

Entries close July 31.

Judging Criteria

Entries will be judged on creativity, craftsmanship and how effectively the dish interprets the competition theme; Sustain.

The judging panel is comprised of internationally acclaimed chefs and food writers.
