Mā te kai, ka ora te tangata

With food, we will thrive.

On 1 July 2021 an all-star cast of Māori chefs will gather for the first time to present a menu indigenous to Aotearoa. This landmark event will herald in Puanga Matariki.

Join these culinary masters as they showcase the rich depth of flavour and manaakitanga (hospitality) of Aotearoa. As well as out leading culinary talent serving up a six course menu, the evening will feature fine wines, musicians and our master of ceremonies Miriama Kamo.
