Giulio Sturla:

For those that may not know Giulio, he is all about building the bridge between people and food. From the rich soil emerges the start of the story, nurtured by farmers, then harvested and reimagined by Giulio into something that sparks joy and lives on long afterwards. His ideas are limitless and he is always experimenting and dreaming of new ways to showcase and pay homage to the best food ingredients New Zealand has on offer.

With this wild countryside on our doorstep, incredible untouched nature in our backyard, and unique flavours waiting to be discovered, New Zealand is the best place in the world to eat. By offering intimate food experiences that will reflect the incredible local ingredients and produce, Giulio utilises innovative techniques to build a new frontier for expressing culinary creativity. Working alongside a network of sustainable and artisan producers, Giulio will continue his legacy of commitment for the environment and development of New Zealand food, culture and people.
