Multi-award winning chef Marc Soper will be serving up a taste of the Wairarapa as part of Out Standing in their Fields, a nationwide series of Farmers’ Market cooking shows by top Kiwi chefs. The demonstration is aimed at “showing the world just how great genuine Kiwi cooking is,” according to project manager Kylie March.

Soper is excited about highlighting the region, which has often inspired his cooking. “There is always something to see to give you inspiration as a chef and to recreate something based on an experience you have had on an outing.” It’s also an opportunity to highlight where New Zealand cooking is going: “Clean fresh flavours prepared to the best of the chef's ability, with wholesome honest product and integrity. I also consider a true NZ dining experience is one that is enhanced by friendships around the table which also carries back to the producer in many ways.” Farmers’ Markets NZ Chairperson Chris Fortune agrees, saying that “supporting farmers’ markets means supporting local producers and communities, and interactively developing relationships between both producers and consumers.”

Farmers’ Markets NZ is steering the shows as part of the REAL New Zealand Festival 2011, which aims to enrich the experiences of local and international Rugby World Cup fanatics.
