"New Zealand Chefs let their food do the talking, they are unique" said Vittoria Food and Beverage CEO, Les Schirato at the awards. Vittoria is also honoured to be associated with culinary whizzes Ben Bayly (of The Grove, Baduzzi and My Kitchen Rules
in New Zealand) and Michael Meredith (of Merediths). As some of the country's most discerning chefs, they demand products of exceptional provenance, which is reflected in their choice to serve our coffee.
2016 marks the fifth consecutive year of Vittoria's involvement in the awards. As befitting our presenting partner status, Vittoria Coffee inspired menu items were the flavour of the evening. Guests sipped on Vittoria-inspired rum cocktails throughout the evening, and savoured a spectacular experience with a Vittoria-infused chocolate mousse at the end. Our Oro blend was also served as a pre or post evening coffee from the main bar which was styled with a floral theme.
Congratulations to the award winning restaurants which choose to serve Vittoria Coffee:
