NZ vs Aussie: Who makes the best pav?

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

New Zealand’s best chefs are set to bat­tle with their Aus­tralian ri­vals in the top trans-Tas­man culi­nary show­down of the year.

The NZCA Gourmet Pa­cific Chal­lenge will take place at the ASB Show­ground’s dur­ing Fine Food New Zealand from June 22 to 24.

The bi-an­nual chal­lenge will see the best youth (25 and un­der) and se­nior chefs from each coun­try pro­duc­ing their very best en­tree, main and dessert in the ‘Mof­fat Culi­nary Chal­lenge Kitchen’.

The New Zealand se­nior culi­nary team com­prises Stephen Le Corre, Dar­ren Wright, Richard Hingston and Mark Sy­camore, while the Kiwi youth team is Troy Waters and Heidi Waters.

Each team will demon­strate their best culi­nary skills in an ef­fort to im­press the panel of in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised judges.

Na­tional pride will also be at stake in a new one off event, ‘Farmer Brown’s Great Pavlova Bake Off’. Aus­tralia and New Zealand will each pre­pare, pro­duce and dec­o­rate a pavlova to rep­re­sent their coun­tries. Each na­tion will hotly con­test the chal­lenge of ‘‘who makes the best pav’’ on Sun­day June 22 from 2.30pm to 5pm.

The win­ners of the Gourmet Pa­cific Chal­lenge and ‘Farmer Brown’s Great Pavlova Bake Off’ will be an­nounced at a prize giv­ing to be held at the Novo­tel in Eller­slie from 7pm on June 23.
