Spiced wild mushroom risotto topped with horopito marinated Waitoa chicken thigh. Chef Ben Short’s sense of humour shines through with this dish of chicken sitting atop of a "magic"/wild mushroom risotto.
Matariki represents people coming together to enjoy food they have harvested and creating great memories for all generations. I feel my dish is something everyone can come in and enjoy as well as create memories for themselves, family and friends.
