Meadow mushrooms 'Local Food Heroes'

We decided we wanted to celebrate some of the local talent - and sometimes hidden spots -that make up New Zealand's diverse and impressive culinary scene, especially when they have mushrooms on the menu!

Do you have a ‘local food hero’ in your neighbourhood we can tell people about?

Each month we are giving away a $20 gift voucher to any recommendations that we list. Terms and conditions apply.

Send your recommendations - ideally with any photos of the mushroom dish, the venue and the menu to or on Facebook at
