Paris Eggers, and Ashlee Easton, 16 from Waimea College take cooking classes at NMIT, students are working towards creating food art for an up comming event.

A wall covered in donuts, a sushi bar and a bread installation are on the menu at an upcoming food art event. 

Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) culinary arts diploma students are hosting the Beyond the Plate event next month and want to inspire others to get creative with food.

NMIT tutor Chris Fortune said the students came up with the idea for the two-day event and were responsible for its project development, engaging with schools and marketing the event. 

"Beyond the plate meaning – it's more than just what you have in front of you, it's about your whole relationship with food."

The event will feature food art installations from local school students. A canape party would be held on the evening of April 11 and would include a donut wall and sushi bar. There would be interactive food demos, charity auctions and opportunities for people to participate.
