AUCKLAND, New Zealand -  With unique venues such as Bellini bar and White restaurant located 300 meters out to sea, Hilton Auckland announced today its sponsorship of The Food Show Auckland 2010.

“Working with The Food Show Auckland is a perfect fit for Hilton Auckland, as our award-winning restaurant White is all about providing a great dining experience for guests using the best-quality New Zealand produce. 'Homegrown' by White restaurant celebrates NZ-grown produce, harmonizing natural fresh flavours and textures to create a cuisine that showcases the best of the country,” commented Chris Partridge, general manager, Hilton Auckland.

Hilton Auckland’s Bellini bar, with its sweeping views of Auckland Harbour and contemporary décor, is the chosen venue for The Food Show’s launch party. At the launch party, leading food writers, media and VIPs will sample mouthwatering canapés directly from Cristiano De Martin’s kitchen at White restaurant.
