Knives are being sharpened across the country – from Matakana to Queenstown -as New Zealand’s best chefs go head to head for the title of ‘Premier Master of Fine Cuisine’ in the second annual Silver Fern Farms Premier Selection Awards.
The competition showcases the expertise and craft of the country’s talented chefs by creating memorable dining experiences with Silver Fern Farms’ premium red meat cuts.
Chefs created a dish using one of the finest Silver Fern Farms lamb, beef, venison or SILERE alpine origin merino cuts. New Zealanders can dine out at participating restaurants and taste these dishes from 22 September to 31 October.
At the same time a team of qualified and experienced food experts, overseen by returning judging coordinator Kerry Tyack, will assess the chefs’ entries.
Silver Fern Farms General Manager Marketing, Sharon Angus says chefs and restaurants will be proudly promoting their competition dishes to diners over the next six weeks.
“We are delighted by the quality of entrants from right across New Zealand. We think foodies are about to enjoy some exceptional red meat dining experiences.”
Last year’s inaugural winner of the Premier Selection Awards, Mat McLean of Palate Restaurant in Hamilton, won the title with a dish centered around Silver Fern Farms Premier Selection Reserve beef eye-fillet and slow-cooked short-rib.
