Auckland's cuisine is mostly European today. Few Maori dishes have saved. Those dishes that have remained to the present have changed a lot. Many old recipes have been replaced by simple modern analogs. Local residents are sure that the food should be delicious, hearty, cooked from local products, and easy to cook.

National cuisine of New Zealand

The modern cuisine of New Zealand is much different from the traditional cuisine of Maori people. Many local dishes appeared here together with settlers in New Zealand. First of all, these were the British and other nations from Europe. That is the reason why Anglo-Saxon cuisine prevails in the country. It is easy to note this in the frequent use of fish, meat, fried potato, beefsteak, and roast beef.

Virtually every local restaurant offers lobsters, shrimps, oysters, and different fish species. … Open
