We are very excited to have Marco Pierre White with us for his first New Zealand public appearances.

 You can see Marco cook live in the SUB ZERO & WOLF Living Kitchen on Friday Evening, Saturday Afternoon or Saturday Evening (sessions 3, 4 or 5 of Taste of Auckland) and also check out the VIP Ticket Options for a more intimate encounter with Marco.




Dubbed the first celebrity chef, godfather of modern dining and enfant terrible of the UK restaurant scene, White became the first British chef and the youngest chef in then Michelin history to be awarded three Michelin stars at age 32, before controversially handing them back.


During his early career in the kitchen, the chef regularly ejected patrons from his restaurants if he took offence to their comments. Over the course of his 17-year cheffing career White trained many notable chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Curtis Stone and Shannon Bennett.


On retiring from the kitchen in 1999, White became a restaurateur, involved in restaurants such as the London Steakhouse Co, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and Marco’s New York Italian by Marco Pierre White. He has published several books including the influential cookbook White Heat and an autobiography White Slave.


The 57-year old’s extensive TV career includes presenting on British TV show Hell’s Kitchen for two series, on Hell’s Kitchen Australia in 2017 and Marco Pierre’s Kitchen Wars in 2012. He has also appeared multiple times on Masterchef Australia and as mentor and head chef on Masterchef New Zealand in 2015.


Marco and his signature dishes will be appearing at Dine with Marco Pierre White on the Thursday evening and appearing throughout he Taste of Auckland Festival from 31 October – 3 November.
