Are you creative? Do you love good food and working with people? If you have these qualities and work well under pressure, have good communication skills and a strong work ethic, then hospitality could be the perfect fit for you! Cutting edge culinary arts and innovative design unite at the Food Design Institute based at our Dunedin campus. A world leader in Food Design Education, the Institute produces graduates who are food savvy, ambitious and innovative.
We also offer cookery programmes at our Central Otago campus, where you can immerse yourself in our ‘paddock to plate’ approach. We focus on using regional produce to build a connection between the source of our food and the dinner table.
Manaaki offers a diverse menu, excellent service and a cosy, ambient environment for lunchtime and evening dining.
