Culinary Pavilion

The 2018 Marlborough Wine & Food Festival Culinary Pavilion saw some new features. These improvements were made to best showcase our region’s many amazing food producers, our visiting chefs, and of course the world-class wines to match.

For you to enjoy at the 2018 event we had:

Talks and demonstrations area:

We think Marlborough grows some of the best produce in the world and we love to share it with our visitors. To do so, we have introduced Marlborough Local Food Heroes, a series of talks by some of our smaller producers, to learn more about what they do and why they do it. We also asked the Marlborough Wine & Food Festival’s amazing food partners to tell their stories, so you can really learn about where your food has come from, before enjoying the resulting dish.

Culinary Pavilion Exhibitors:

This year we created a new section within the Culinary Pavilion where you could taste restaurant-quality food prepared by our celebrity chefs.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to sample a range of exquisite food creations from New Zealand and International culinary royalty including Colin Fassnidge, Kasey and Karena Bird, Annabelle White and Nick Honeyman – all in one fantastic setting.
Each chef will prepare two dishes using fresh Marlborough produce from their chosen festival food partner who are exhibiting at the Culinary Pavilion: Kono, Cloudy Bay Clams, Flaxbourne Pure and Regal Salmon.
