What’s cooking at the Christchurch Food Show this week

With an exceptional line up, including new masterclasses, new chefs and hot exhibitors, there’s all the ingredients for a great day out when The Food Show returns to Wolfbrook Arena from 5-7 April 2024.

The ultimate event for foodies, this is the show to titillate tastebuds and satisfy the passion for all things delicious. A celebration of gastronomic proportions awaits, with hundreds of exhibitors offering the latest in niche new artisan food and drink; exclusive, show-only specials and the opportunity to sample and stock up on the best products available.

The new Hancocks Spirits Masterclasses will include a Margarita Masterclass which will see you adding a touch of Mexican flair to your cocktails, while the Gin & Cake High Tea will redefine how you spend your afternoons. Masterclasses can be purchased online with your entry ticket.

Once you’ve navigated around the various delectable zones at the Show, head to the free, live cooking demonstrations at the NEFF Cooking Theatre where some of Australasia’s top culinary talent will be sharing their secret recipes and hot cooking tips. This year there is an exciting line up including Silvia Colloca – an Italian-Australian actress, opera singer, cookbook author, and television cookery show personality who has published six cookbooks. Tina Duncan – a New Zealand cook, caterer and cooking school tutor. Simon Levy – who began his culinary journey at the age of 13, working his way up to Head Chef of prestigious restaurants across the UK until relocating to Christchurch, now running Inati. And, of course, Annabelle White who has mastered the art of having fun in the kitchen by taking the simple yet most effective way of creating memorable dishes in the kitchen!

And let’s not forget the new products on the market, many of which will be exhibited at the show. There will be stands featuring Wonky Box, Pepper & Me, Pasta Vera, High Country Salmon, Nicely Sauced and Green Meadows Beef who will be launching a new product at the show.
