2010 New Zealander of the Year in Britain - Anna Hansen
Anna Hansen's recipe for success is pretty simple.. a LARGE dash of Kiwi spirit, a GOOD pinch of determination and several HEAPED cups of pure hard work. Judges of the 2010 New Zealander of the Year in Britain think so too. Anna Hansen just won this prestigious award. She's the owner of"The Modern Pantry"restaurant in London. It opened in 2008 to critical acclaim. The New Zealander of the year award is given each year to a Kiwi in the UK who promotes a positive image of New Zealand. Hansen says her philosophy is to please and excite the palate by renewing everyday cooking with modern ingredients and global inspiration.
