The Chinese World on Your Plate attracted a crowd eager to taste the delights of Chinese cuisine - and they weren't disappointed! The crowd loved Connie Clarkson's spring rolls and Tony Cho's stir-fry.
Chinese cuisine first arrived in New Zealand with the gold-miners of the late 19th century. Since that time our fascination with Chinese food has grown into a full-blown love affair. The diversity of Chinese cuisine is representative of the nation’s huge geography and long history. As philosopher Confucius once said, “Eating is the utmost important thing in life.” Even today, the colour, aroma and flavour of Chinese cuisine share equal importance.
