New Zealand

This small country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean is comprised of two main islands. More than 1,000 miles east of Australia across the Tasman Sea, New Zealand was a former colony of the British Empire. The culture of the island was shaped by European immigrants and the Maori people, of Polynesian descent, who migrated to the islands about 1,000 years ago. Early colonists, British mainly, hoped to rely on the familiar foods of home. Meat and potatoes, all of which were introduced into New Zealand, remain important parts of the diet. However, conservative British cooking has slowly made room for Mediterranean and Asian styles that celebrate fresh local ingredients. New Zealand is known for its lamb, mussels, and its booming wine industry. Like the English, New Zealanders drink a lot of tea, which is not to be confused with their main meal, usually eaten in the evening, and often called “tea.”
