Come on a culinary journey with us from the comfort of your own home as we stop at iconic foodie hotspots – from the source of the mighty Waikato River in the mountains to the point where the river meets the sea, out to tip of the Coromandel Peninsula and all places in between.
The Mighty Waikato Cookbook will raise funds for Momentum Waikato and Wise Group’s community kitchen, which is providing meals for vulnerable people across the region. It is also an ode to the hospitality industry, which has felt the effects of the crisis deeply, and a reminder for us all to visit our favourite local food haunts when able to.
We invite you to discover recipes and stories from some of your favourite producers in the region and hope you enjoy learning more about the wonderful businesses dotted across the region who’ve inspired and co-created the Mighty Waikato Cookbook. With over 50 recipes and 40 featured establishments, there’s something for everyone! Even better, these much loved places will be ready and waiting to welcome us as our economy gets going again.
