Eat NZ Hui + Eat NZ Grains 2022: In-Person + Online
Eat New Zealand Hui + Eat NZ Grains 2022.
Dan Barber to feature at the most important food conversation in Aotearoa. #LotsofLittle
This will be our 8th annual gathering, and amidst a challenging time, we've made the decision to host this year's Hui, as a hybrid event - with the option to attend IN-PERSON at the Majestic in Ōtautahi or ONLINE via our virtual platform. Covid-settings mean we cannot currently have a large event, so if you want to be there in-person you need to secure your space now.
We are beyond excited to announce that Dan Barber - one of the world's best chefs will be joining us as our virtual keynote speaker! Dan is the voice of the farm-to-table movement, he is the author of 'The Third Plate', chef and co-owner of award-winning restaurant Blue Hill at Stone Barn in New York state, and was featured on the Netflix Series Chef's Table. He is also the co-founder of Row 7 Seed Company, a business which brings chefs and plant breeders to develop new varieties of vegetables and grains.
Our 2022 theme is #LotsofLittle - which speaks to the resilience of small and diverse solutions at such uncertain times.
The Eat NZ Hui is a hugely important event for us, as it brings together people from across all aspects of food in Aotearoa. It's about connecting with each other and celebrating our food and our food stories, while providing a space to share learnings, challenges and opportunities from throughout our food system.
Day 1. Eat NZ Hui - Tuesday 3rd May: 9.00am - 5.30pm
A day of talks about all aspects of our food and the things that influence it.
Day 2. Eat NZ Grains - Wednesday 4th May: 9.00am - 5.30pm
A day focused on celebrating New Zealand grown grains, particularly our grain farmers, millers, bakers and eaters - supported by Foundation of Arable Research (FAR).
Stay tuned over the next month on our Eat New Zealand socials as we share more of the hui programme and speakers.
