This “best of” episode from Māori TV’s long-running te reo food show revisits stories that presenter Peter Peeti has shot throughout the North Island. It‘s a celebration of food harvested from the land, rivers and sea, ranging from stingrays on the East Coast and the Tūhoe Wild Food Festival at Waimana, to goat hunting in Taranaki and fishing on Parengarenga Harbour. Peeti’s korero with the people of the land is equally important, and his giggle is worthy of Billy T. Recipes include mussel fritters, baked hapuka, venison casserole and curried snapper.
We took it out into the field because Pete is that real Kiwi bloke. He loves hunting and fishing, but he also loves to cook and somehow he manages to put it all on a plate in the middle of the bush and make it look like a four star meal.– Producer Jo Santamaria
