Millbrook Resort, New Zealand, has announced that Andi Bozhiqi, Executive Chef for the past five years, has been selected as one of the 2016 Beef + Lamb New Zealand Ambassadors.
Recognised across the industry both nationally and abroad, this annual award is given to recognise the skill, expertise and talent of a select group of outstanding chefs, who consistently deliver world-class New Zealand beef and lamb dishes to their guests.
In its 20th year, the Beef + Lamb New Zealand Excellence Awards is the nation’s longest running culinary awards. As well as receiving recognition for their outstanding cookery skill, the Ambassadors are involved in special Beef + Lamb New Zealand events held throughout the year including ‘The Ambassador Series’ in which each Ambassador holds a ticketed degustation dinner in their restaurant to highlight their talent with beef and lamb, a highlight in the New Zealand culinary calendar.
“Andi Bozhiqi joins a line-up of four other very talented chefs who have reached an incredible standard of cookery. We are excited to have him on board as a 2016 Beef + Lamb New Zealand Ambassador Chef,” says Rod Slater, CEO, Beef + Lamb New Zealand.
Andi began his career in London, gaining invaluable experience at some of the leading restaurants in the UK and Europe. He has since then developed a clear style he describes as Modern European and his presence at the Millhouse Restaurant at Millbrook Resort has brought with it a creativity in dishes and flavour combinations seen rarely in the New Zealand culinary sphere.
