The 7 Dishes You Have to Eat in New Zealand

Diving into the ocean to catch your own shellfish all sounds rather intrepid, but it’s just another summer day in New Zealand. On dry land, the options are just as bountiful: there are lush forests with native herbs like horopito; gardens with rainbows of organic produce, and acres of stonefruits in sprawling orchards. New Zealand’s natural beauty is revered around the world (as is its political stability ), but over the past decade or so, the local culinary scene has found a distinct character that is evocative of its geographically blessed location.  “We have many different types of geography and climates throughout the country—rolling hills, flat plateaus, alpine, and subtropical areas—which provide a variation of microclimates,” explains Marisa Bidois, Chief Executive of the Restaurant Association of New Zealand .  “Our small but fruitful land mass provides a vast array of edible resources and the base for creating outstanding dishes and flavors.”

Al Brown , who is perhaps the most quintessentially ‘Kiwi’ chef there is, believes that the abundance of nature requires no need for ‘smoke and mirrors.’  “Our ace of cards in the culinary deck are our four distinct seasons, fertile soils, and our distance from the source—be it from the sea or the land,” he explains.

The light from an Octobox and a beauty dish aren't all that different. They are different but not worlds apart like you'd expect. So what has more usefulness to you? Based on the portable part of it, I'd say the Octobox. It can fold down for travelling
