After driving through the beautiful landscape of the north and south islands, I have tasted quite a bit of New Zealand’s delightful range of food and wine. Besides the numerous fish & chips places and cafes all over the country, I also have discovered some little town restaurants and great trendy places in Auckland, Wellington, Queenstown, Dunedin & Christchurch. What I mostly like while looking through the menus was the inspirations from Asian, European and Polynesian cuisine and the philosophy of simplicity and not over handling the great New Zealand’s products.
