Wanaka encapsulates a thriving and creative foodie culture with an outstanding array of cafes, bars, restaurants, boutique food trucks, fine dining,  craft breweries, wineries and most importantly when it comes to Anaka's work in holiday, retreat and event design - private chefs and catering companies. The options are endless and we can pivot to ensure the right food tone and experience is set for you and your group from delicious plant-based to hearty organic and locally sourced meats to table decor, styling and designer cocktails! There is the option to self-cater or we can personally shop for you and you cook or we fully cater and provide an in-house chef or a mix of all of the above. The world is your oyster!
