Spring, or Koanga had finally sprung - time to get outside and get active again, and to enjoy the new season's produce.
Spring is one of the most eagerly awaited seasons, with the promise of warmer weather, longer days, and fresher, lighter foods.Capturing the flavours of the season…
Steam or grill asparagus, and top with fine NZ artisan butter or olive oil. And a grind of freshly ground parmesan. Treat yourself to new spring lamb, with fresh mint sauce made form your garden
And to top it off, the first of our fabulous strawberry season. I love them with a drizzle of good quality balsamic vinegar, and even a grind of fresh black pepper.
We make it easier for you to
discover, buy and enjoy these and many other delicious artisan foods. At the same time we help the small artisan
food producers across the country grow their business.
On Kai, you can learn more about the artisans themselves - the people with the passion
behind the produce. And learn more about the places our great food comes from –
the many and varied regions of NZ. Our country has some incredible natural advantages in being able to
grow, breed, and harvest a huge array of foods from the land, rivers and sea. We support organic but many traditional foods in New Zealand are quite OK (just check that they are sustainably grown and produced).
We check our artisan suppliers to ensure that their food is
grown, harvested and prepared as sustainably and ethically as possible. And we identify artisans and products that are Certified organic.
Artisan food producers are the small guys in a big world, but we are committed to help them…. and make it easy for you to
support them. If there is an artisan food producer you would like us to get on
Kai, let us know
