NZ's Best Beef Meal is found in Izone

2 November 2011

Café Izone's head chef Kathryn Ahu won the Best Beef Award at the Hospitality Association of New Zealand Excellence Awards at the Airforce Museum in Wigram last week. 

Café Izone was competing against three other finalists in Nelson, Wellington and Mount Maunganui for the coveted award.

Kathryn's premium beef eye fillet is cooked to order, with a creamy celeriac puree and garlic seared broccoli heads. The steak is topped with a zesty gremolata and finished with port wine jus.

Last year Café Izone won the HANZ Best New Restaurant category. Steve and Shelly Trigg deserve commendation for creating an award wining restaurant in the heart of Izone and the Selwyn District – you can find out more at
