CULINARY PHILOSOPHY

Edgewater offers contemporary cuisine inspired by the local land. The menu is centered around sustainability, changing every season to match the abundance of quality ingredients found in the Central Otago region. To honor and respect the environment and journey from paddock to plate we embrace the philosophy of not letting anything go to waste, proudly embracing cuts of meat that might otherwise be exported or wasted, adding an exciting element to dishes, and introducing guests to something they may not have tried. We endeavor to source produce that is thoughtfully grown and harvested and consciously ask questions to our suppliers and supply chain to ensure that our principles and philosophies match.

- Chris Nelson, Executive Chef

Local Suppliers

Dunford Grove

Against Central Otago’s extreme climate, olive trees flourish beside the beautiful shores of Lake Dunstan.  They practice sustainability in all facets of their business repurposing all forms of waste with a supplementary aim of having soil and trees in the best health possible with zero chemical interference.

Silver Fern Farms – South Island

Founded in 1948, we are New Zealand's leading procurer, processor, marketer, and exporter of premium quality lamb, beef, and venison. Our 'plate-to-pasture' strategy is how we make it happen - focusing first
on identifying consumer needs, and then working with our farmers to grow animals and apply our expertise to meet those needs.

Cardrona Distillery

Family owned and operated, Cardrona Distillery flagships a Single Malt Whisky, “Just Hatched”. A special natural cask strength marriage of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this “Just Hatched” Whisky reveals underlying character of borage flower honey, vanilla, spice, with weighted spirit on the tongue.

Parkburn Farm

Growers of local, seasonal, organic, and spray-free vegetables. Parkburn Farm uses ethical and
sustainable methods to grow quality produce and to minimise the negative impact on the environment.

Te Mana Lamb

With intramuscular fat rich in Omega-3 and marbling on a micro‐scale, Te Mana can be seen as the “Wagyu of Lamb”. Livestock is finished on chicory for thirty days and is raised in the iconic hills and high country across 17 South Island stations before being aged 21 days.

Whitestone Cheeses

Born in Oamaru in a converted garage with milk sourced from local farms and one variety, Whitestone Farmhouse was launched in 1987 before slowly growing into a purpose-built facility in 1998.

The skill of their cheesemakers is to convert premium grass-fed milk into world-class cheeses by artisan open vat techniques utilizing traditional cheese-making methods which are true to the heritage of cheese; the process is as natural as all ingredients.
