This event has probably been and gone!
Laurent Loudeac was destined to a career of great food and wine when he was born in Chateaubriant, France. He completed his apprenticeship in threestar hotel restaurant La Ferriere, and has been working his way around the world ever since. Laurent moved to New Zealand in 1995 and spent the first year in Pauanui at the Puka Park lodge. After a brief stint in Wellington, he spent the next few years working in fine-dining kitchens in Sydney and the southwest of France, but it was Wellington that stole his heart and drew him back. Since then he has head up the kitchens at Hummingbird, Hippopotamus and most recently Eat. Never one to be tied down, Laurant has now gone out on his own.
