noun. 1. A person (epicurean) devoted to, skilled or knowledgeable in the unique cuisine of the antipodes, namely New Zealand.
The Antipocurean movement has been established by Alliance Group to expose New Zealand produce and its provenance to the world.
Our aims and intent are simple: to further the international awareness of the unique cuisine of New Zealand. At the inaugural event we selected what is close to our heart - lamb, beef and venison.
The Antipocurean Series sees guest chefs from around the world experience first-hand the passion of our farmers, the provenance and terroir of New Zealand and the unique flavours and textures this creates in our products.
