Notable Presentations from Four New Zealand Chefs

With a plethora of fresh produce, sustainable seafood, and exceptional protein available, chefs in New Zealand have the advantage of having some of the best ingredients in the world at their fingertips. And chefs aren’t afraid to approach their plates with a bright color palette that highlights the vibrant elements they’re using. Chefs Michael Meredith of Merediths and Des Harris of Clooney channel Michel Bras in their effortless, elegant presentations while Chefs Marco Edwardes of Te Whau and Leyton Ashley of Terroir go for a more methodical approach. Both styles are equally stunning, and urge the diner to eat the dishes with their eyes before digging in with their forks.
