Taranaki was recently judged one of the world’s top regions to visit by Lonely Planet, with a number of its eateries making the grade. Sitting beneath a picture-perfect mountain, the region’s world class dairy sector has emerged from this lush volcanic landscape, as has an ability to grow just about anything. Both factors have influenced the region’s cuisine, with exquisite cuts of meat, diverse dairy production and locally grown produce featuring strongly, with fresh fish and rich stocks of kai moana adding to the wonderfully diverse array of taste experiences. Through its cuisine you’ll experience Taranaki’s laid-back coastal culture, its innovative heart, and its legendary spirit of hospitality.
Taranaki’s tipples of choice are craft beer and coffee, and both are brewed to perfection, generally organically, and exported around the world, along with almost all of the region’s food production.
