Introduced By was established by Toni Fyvie, a New Zealander who grew up in Taupo on the North Island. She has since spent the last 25 years living in the culinary capitals of the world, relentlessly exploring local hidden gems in search of unique taste experiences. Yet, from Melbourne to Paris, Montreal to London, Toni’s international taste buds have always been peppered by her love of New Zealand’s culture and cuisine.

Across continents and date lines, Toni’s ongoing quest to discover great food and one-of-a-kind stories prompted her blog Un Kiwi En Vol – an ode to the Parisian food scene. As she moved, her blog followed, offering her unique international perspective on local cuisine to friends, family and fans alike. Recently, her thoughts turned home-ward, wowed by the quality of foods being produced by inventive New Zealanders – both at home and abroad – yet unknown to much of the world.

Introduced By is a natural extension of Toni’s ear for a good story and nose for outstanding food. With it, Toni shares New Zealand with the world, diving deeper into the local scene in international meccas where kiwis are making their mark, and telling fascinating tales about the ingredients, foods and people of New Zealand.
