Congratulations to the winners of the Cuisine Artisan Awards 2016
The Cuisine Artisan Awards, now in their eighth year, continue to celebrate small New Zealand producers. All this year's winners have a clear passion for what they do and have put their all into bringing their products to the market.
We'd like to thank readers for nominating their favourite products, our associate sponsors Marisco Vineyards and Farro Fresh, and our major sponsor L'affare, a company that reflects the principles of artisan production.
"We're very pleased to be sponsoring the Cuisine Artisan Awards for the seventh year," says Cory Hodges, L'affare communications coordinator. "The quality of this year's entrants is as high as ever. We're always looking for new ways to connect with people who are passionate about good food and drink, and supporting New Zealand's talented artisan producers is a great way of doing so."
