On Tuesday we headed on down to Ruawharo Marae to have our Master Chef Maara Kai competition. We were all very excited and couldn’t wait to get started on our planned menu. To start with we watched Nanny Sophie demonstrate how to make a bull kelp steam bag. Some of us were lucky enough to do this with Nanny Sophie at the end of last year. We sliced open the kelp and stuffed it with our onion, potato, kumara and carrot. We then watched a demonstration by Chef Shaun, on how to make a delicious warm caramelised onion dip! We all agreed it tasted amazing and Whaea Jenni has agreed to share it with us all on the Te Mahia School facebook page! After that we began the prep on our own menus of a salad and a nutritious drink. It was awesome to see the teamwork involved, and the discussions between team members. It was an amazing day full of fun and food. The winning team was Mokotahi!
And we have a very awesome team of amazing Chefs heading into town next Wednesday to compete against other Wairoa Schools. The team is Patricia D, Anthony, Violet and Azure.
Kia Kaha Te Mahia Chefs!
