Matariki Dish Challenge

The Matariki Dish Challenge has become a popular foodie event in the Hamilton & Waikato region, and returns from 9th June - 14th July 2018.

The challenge will see local chefs create a Matariki inspired dish, which is required to include at least two local ingredients. The dishes will be available for the public to enjoy throughout the challenge, and mystery judges will assess each dish to determine a 2017 winner.
