the appetizer:

New Zealand's cuisine is Pacific Rim, influenced by European colonists, Asian and Polynesian traders and immigrants, and its indigenous people, the Maori. Typical New Zealand foods include lamb, pork, venison, seafood, sweet potato, kiwi fruit, tamarillo, feijoa, and pavlova, the national dessert.

New Zealand

Background

New Zealand is a land of plenty. Rich, creamy dairy products; lamb "fed on lush meadow grass and mother's milk"; and the brown, furry kiwifruit (brought over from central China almost a century ago, it was called a Chinese gooseberry and renamed for export) are just a few of the many delicious items New Zealand produces.

Most of the food should be familiar to visitors; New Zealand boasts French, Greek, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, Italian, Indian, American, Vietnamese, and vegetarian, as well as traditional New Zealand and Polynesian restaurants. A Maori hangi (feast), featuring Maori specialties steamed to perfection in an underground oven, is an eating experience that shouldn't be missed.
