The 2017 Plate of Origin competition has been taken out by Amayjen from Feilding and Arbour from Marlborough – they have taken a clean sweep after winning the People’s Choice competition as well.
Plate of Origin in association with FoodHQ and supported by Cuisine and Visa Wellington On a Plate, is a national food competition that highlights the finest New Zealand food offerings involving ten regions and twenty restaurants. The competition ensures all entered dishes feature two hero ingredients that represent the chosen region.
2017 marks the second year the competition has been run and was hosted across the wider Manawatu region as part of the New Zealand AgriFood Investment Week (13-18 March). Amayjen chef and owner, Andrew May says he and his wife Jenni and the entire team are over the moon with the win.
