Hunger for the Wild - Series One, Episode Three (Mokihinui River whitebait)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2006

PG
Parental Guidance

This award-winning lifestyle series took Wellington chefs Al Brown and Steve Logan out of their fine dining restaurant kitchen, and off on a mission to put the local in 'locally sourced' kai. In this episode it's wild food on a wild river — whitebaiting on the Mokihinui. Brownie gets a primo 'stand' and coaster advice; and Steve gets some Green Fern lager and meets a Department of Conservation ranger who tells the whitebait's perilous life story and nets a grown-up: a kokopu. Then it's riverside fritters with beurre blanc sauce and asparagus, washed down with a glass of pinot gris.

It's a chance for us to give back to the people who helped us; to sit around a table of beautiful food; to talk about the hunt; and swap stories. I love it, it's a big part of why we're in the business.
– Steve Logan, on the meal that ends each episode
