Hoko Kai on the Waterfront

by kowhai on July 30, 2010 in Uncategorised

Te wiki o te Reo Maori is drawing to a close, with the finale being held at the markets on the waterfront this Sunday. This year’s theme is ‘te mahi kai’ (the language of food) and what better place to celebrate than the food markets on Wellington’s waterfront. 

So go grab your fruit, vege and gourmet goodies from Harbourside and City Markets and live the language of food in te reo.  There will be biligual signage, haka, waiata and the release of the a biligual CD of songs Tipi Haere Te Reo.  

Formalities kick of 8.00am at Harbourside Market and there will be entertainment until midday. 

Over at the City Market (inside the Chaffers apartment building) they will be doing what they do best: making us drool with treats from their kitchen.

Te Kihini Makete i tenei wiki: Kau tunuumu Greytown, hupa paukena Pinehaven penu ma te mina-auahi, he paku hirikaka me te kokonati,Wairarapa pai ika, pai kaimoana, Kawakawa parauni.
Market kitchen this week: Braised Greytown beef, manuka smoked mash Pinehaven pumpkin (paukena) soup, hint of chilli & coconut Wairarapa fish pie, dill mash. Kawakawa brownie.
 

Kaua e whakama ki te korero maori.
