The Beef and Lamb Excellence Awards are designed to acknowledge a consistently high standard of beef and lamb cuisine. These restaurants have not been compared with each other in the assessment process. Rather, they have been judged on their individual merits.

Whenever you see the Beef and Lamb Excellence Award, you can expect tasty, skillfully composed and superbly presented beef and lamb dishes.



Each year, Beef + Lamb New Zealand selects a team of chefs who have displayed exceptional culinary skills during the Beef and Lamb Excellence Awards.  These chefs become
Beef + Lamb New Zealand Ambassadors for the year driving innovation and creativity within the food service sector using New Zealand beef and lamb.  As well as receiving special recognition for their achievement, each chef has the opportunity to be part of the Beef + Lamb Ambassador Series, hosting a dinner in their own restaurant to showcase
their achievement to their guests.  Click here for details of the next Ambassador Series Dinner to be held on National Lamb Day at Cibo Parnell, Auckland.
