Te wiki o te Reo Māori contemporary kai feast

Te wiki o te Reo Māori contemporary kai feast

A contemporary take on traditional Māori food was a highlight of Te wiki o te Reo Māori.

Culinary Arts and Hospitality students put on a sell out three course dinner over three nights.

The menu was in both Reo and English and celebrated traditional Māori ingredients. 

The menu was devised by Production Chef, Willz Gould and beautifully cooked, presented and served by the students.

You can drool over the creations in the photographs below.
