Congratulations to the 2018 Plate of Origin Winners

We’re excited to announce or 2018 winning team, Nero Restaurant and Cibo – our Manawatu-Auckland team with chefs Scott Kennedy and Kate Fay taking out the competition with their winning dish.

Each partnership creates one main dish, highlighting two key ingredients to represent their partner restaurant’s region and Manawatu-Whanganui.
