NERO had a successful evening at Manawatu’s Plate of Origin competition – a great night out which focusses on celebrating our fantastic Manawatu producers and restaurants.


We are so proud of our friends Scott & Yvette Kennedy, who won the Formal Dinner Category with the Coastal Lamb French Rack, with pressed Coastal Lamb Shoulder, salsa verde, French peas, ginger yams, goat cured filled profiterole and pecorino cheese.

When asked about Coastal Lamb, Scott said “It’s a fantastic product. It’s available now – why wouldn’t you use it? It’s perfect.”
