Hosted by The Helm Bar and Kitchen
as part of Tino Reka te Kai - Waikato Matariki Dish Challenge
Matariki is this beautiful time of year where we celebrate the beginning of the Maori New Year. We are honoured to share with you our unique dish and experience in making it.
Our dish is inspired by Tane Mahuta (the god of the forest) where we found most of the produce like celeriac, from the ground, Kawakawa, from the trees and our watercress, from the stream. With the help of Waipuna-a-rangi our dish is finished off with a herb crusted lamb rack.
We hope you enjoy this journey as much as we have creating it!
