Beef + Lamb New Zealand has announced four chefs who will be their 2020 Ambassador Chefs to act as leaders driving innovation and creativity using New Zealand beef and lamb within the foodservice sector.

Congratulations to:

Beef + Lamb New Zealand has been highlighting the wealth of talented chefs in New Zealand for close to quarter of a century.  To date they have showcased the skills, craft and creativity of over 80 Ambassador Chefs. These have included some of the best-known faces of Aotearoa’s food scene including; Peter Gordon, The Sugar Club; Rex Morgan, Boulcott Street Bistro; Kate Fay, Cibo; Shaun Clouston, Logan Brown; Mat McLean, Palate; and Darren Wright, Chillingworth Road to name but a few, earning the reputation as New Zealand’s most sort after culinary job club.

Lisa Moloney, Food Service Manager at Beef + Lamb New Zealand, has been overseeing the Ambassador Chef programme for over a decade and was quick to highlight the calibre of entries this year.

“We were delighted with the high level of creativity and enthusiasm from chefs around the country who sent in applications. Not only were chefs putting together well thought out beef and lamb dishes with interesting flavour combinations, but the level of execution was very high,” says Moloney. “With such a high standard, it was a tough decision whittling it down to four chefs.”

As well as being the voices of Beef + Lamb New Zealand in the foodservice space, each chef will have the opportunity to show off their skill and creativity to their customers when each chef hosts an Ambassador Series degustation in their own restaurant.
