About

Blueberry fires up chef’s imagination

A TIMARU man cannot get enough of the restaurant on Elizabeth Place, his love for it enduring more than 10 years, and leading him and his wife to buy it. ‘‘It ticks all the boxes,’’ he says. Grant Phillips and his wife Kristy, of Timaru, own what used to be Red Rocket and is now called Zest.

Mr Phillips originally worked at the former Jackson hall when it was first converted into a restaurant, called Passions, in 1997. It was a location that he had always thought of as desirable. He then went to work in restaurants in Australia and around the South Island, eventually coming back to Timaru in 2001. On his return, he worked as head chef at what was then called Zanzibar, on the Bay Hill.
