"I love New Zealand - there are so many beautiful places to visit, and so much local produce and flavours to cook with," Evans said.

"I look forward to seeing what the Kiwis can cook up for Manu and me."

Meanwhile, Feidel said he was looking for some great Kiwi flavours.

"I haven't spent a lot of time in New Zealand personally, so it'll be great to get around the country and meet some incredible people and try their food."

The series will be produced by Seven Productions, the creators and producers of My Kitchen Rules Australia.
