The Nelson Tasman region is emerging as New Zealand’s newest culinary tourism destination. For serious foodies and culinary artisans you’ll be in a constant state of delectable delight. The region has an abundance of local flavours, sun-kissed fruit, farm-fresh and organic produce and succulent seafood. Your senses will salivate with fresh ingredients as they’re transformed into mouth-watering fare among the vines, along the waterfront, or get out and about and discover one of our secret country cafés. Seafood and organic dishes are a specialty, from chowder to garlic mussels, to scrumptious gluten-free dishes. Out in Tasman district you’ll find a number of cheese producers, olive growers and berry farms where you can ‘pick your own’ in season. Several markets across the region also make a visit to region a worthwhile experience. The great food is complemented with over twenty-five boutique aromatic wineries and craft breweries providing endless gastronomic inspiration and liquid delights.
