TAUPO, New Zealand - Hilton Lake Taupo has welcomed Adrian Walker as the hotels newest executive chef. Walker joins the team with more than 15 years' experience in some of Melbourne's best fine dining establishments and most recently was the executive chef at a five-star hotel in Auckland.

Walker is a strong advocate for using locally sourced produce and is passionate about supporting local farmers and suppliers. This passion stems from his upbringing, growing up on a farm in rural Southland.

"There are countless family-run farms in the Taupo region which are growing far better quality produce and meat than what overseas suppliers provide," said, Adrian Walker, executive chef, Hilton Lake Taupo. "Fresh and local ingredients have the potential to elevate any dish and by changing our menus seasonally, we ensure that we only serve the freshest dishes that are full of flavour."

Nourish Group Executive Chef Gareth Stewart will continue to develop the menu at Taupo's premium culinary destination, Bistro Lago.

On 28 July, you can experience Walker's expertise at Bistro Lago's Craft Beer Matching Dinner with Emerson's.
