NMIT students are playing with their food and they're encouraging others to do the same – all in the name of charity. 

A group of six second year culinary art students are hosting Beyond the Plate, a food art event and exhibition which gets them out of the kitchen, into the community and creating more than just an edible spread.

Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology culinary arts chef tutor Chris Fortune said the displays included lifeboat provisions in an art format, forks hanging from the ceiling, donut walls and a sushi bar.

The culinary art students were recently in the kitchen with Nelson College for Girls students creating hats, he said.

"Hats that have got sprouts coming out of them, hats made out of lotus leaves, hats made out of dried oranges and lemons" and they'll all be displayed at the event.
