Füri, leading innovator of professional kitchen knives and sharpeners, has launched their range of elite knives into New Zealand at an event hosted by restaurateur and ambassador, Kylie Kwong.
Füri designs and manufactures high quality and high-performance tools for both professional chefs and passionate home cooks.
Kylie Kwong, Furi Ambassador, is one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs. Kylie says she is very excited about this trip to launch Furi into New Zealand.
“I hold a special place in my heart for New Zealand. I have always found New Zealanders incredibly kind, warm, welcoming and passionate about food and wine. I am looking forward to cooking with New Zealand’s stunning fresh and high-quality produce and enjoying some great New Zealand wines, which we also love showcasing at my restaurant, Billy Kwong.”
Kylie is best known for her iconic Sydney restaurant, Billy Kwong, range of cookbooks and appearances on MasterChef as well as being an advocate for sustainable food and ethical eating. With a passion for nurturing and educating the next generation of cooks, Kylie is the perfect ambassador for Füri’s range of ergonomic, high quality, designed knives and sharpeners.
“Anyone who knows me understands my love of good design and practicality. It makes perfect sense to partner with Füri knives. They’re sharp, perfectly balanced and with an innovative handle, that makes knife work so much easier. I now only use Füri in the kitchen,” says Kylie.
New Zealand Brand and Product Manager Hayley Farr says,
“It’s an honour to have Kylie in New Zealand to launch the range. We know that Kiwis are big foodies and hope that we can be part of many great dinners and special occasions in New Zealand homes.”
The range has an innovative wedge-shaped handle to reduce hand fatigue and high-grade Japanese stainless steel, recognised around the world for its exceptional performance, durability and comfort.
Füri’s knives are now available to purchase in Stevens, Ballantynes and Specialist Housewares Stores. The range features sleek packaging and compact knife block sets.
RRP ranges from $59.99 to $599.99 for a complete set.
