We are a tour company located in the Bay of Plenty, a region named by Captain Cook for its abundance of food supplies and bountiful Maori gardens. Today the region, along with all of New Zealand, is home to a food culture that celebrates freshness and flavour.
We are passionate about food, superbly fresh local ingredients and the great chefs and cooks that call New Zealand home. Our aim is to introduce you to some of our favourite food heroes as we visit and sample innovative food from restaurants, markets, specialty food shops and hole in the wall production facilities.
Join us on a unique, delicious culinary adventure as we take you off the “eaten” track.
