One of the biggest names in the food world is heading our way later this year for some very special Auckland appearances.
The ‘godfather of modern cooking’, Marco Pierre White is set to appear at an exclusive white tie dinner and at New Zealand’s largest food festival, Taste of Auckland.
The British chef, restaurateur and TV personality will work with top New Zealand chefs on an exclusive multi-course dinner for around 400 lucky diners on Thursday 31 October. On from 31 October to 3 November, visitors to this year’s Taste of Auckland will also be able to catch the famous chef - known for his acerbic wit as much as his signature wild mushroom risotto - at appearances over the course of the four-day festival.
Dubbed the 'first celebrity chef', 'godfather of modern dining' and 'enfant terrible' of the UK restaurant scene, White became the first British chef and youngest chef in then Michelin history to be awarded three Michelin stars at age 32, before controversially handing them back.
