Marcus Samuelsson in NZ
A New York Chef in New Zealand

Marcus Samuelsson is an award-winning chef and the co-owner of New York City’s famous Aquavit restaurant. Born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, his all-consuming passion for cooking has taken him to many parts of the world. This time, he found himself in New Zealand, where local delights such as horopito, kumara and rewena paraoa were wafted under his educated nose.

Jeremaia Fisk of South Island Guides gave Marcus a breathtaking peek at the limitless outdoor activities available in and around Queenstown. One outstanding adventure was a heli-hiking tour of Mount Nicholas, which made it possible to hike alpine trails that are unreachable any other way. Jeremaia and his expert guides make it their business to build a customised itinerary around specific interests, such as fly fishing, horseback riding, heli-skiing and kayaking.
