A unique opportunity to learn about Mahinga Kai and New Zealand flora from special guest Matua Riki Bennett.
Our Urban Forage (Mahinga Kai) with Riki Bennett starts with a guided walk to identify a range of edible plants, leaves and berries.
Back at the New Zealand School of Food and Wine, Riki will explain and share in more details in an interactive presentation on local edible plants and trees, along with Māori food gathering traditions and culture.
The presentation is followed by a delicious gourmet luncheon featuring traditional ingredients with a contemporary focus.
Local Auckland wines will be paired with this menu.
