As the major players in kiwi hospitality gathered in Napier for the Hospitality New Zealand 'Expanding Horizon's' Conference, there was certainly cause for celebration.

Tuesday 15th October saw seven of the best and brightest individuals recognised for their hard work, excellence and passion at the Rising Stars Awards.

And we're thrilled to announce that our Chef de Partie Maddie Grace brought home the Up and Coming Chef award from the glittering awards ceremony.
