If you are a king in the kitchen or the queen of culinary delights, then the upcoming Taste of Wairoa food and wine event is for you.

Whether you are an old-fashioned home kitchen cook or a gourmet chef, you are encouraged to put your best plate forward.

The Wairoa District Council and Hawke’s Bay Tourism are pairing up to bring a five-course dining experience to Wairoa as part of the Hawke’s Bay Food and Wine Classic (FAWC) event.

 All you need to do is enter by next Wednesday (April 21), present a sample of whichever courses you would like to cook for the judges on April 23, and if you are successful, ensure you can replicate 100 of your winning dishes.

 A Taste of Wairoa promises to be a great night out while also giving the local community a chance to showcase their own unique kai, dishes and secret whānau recipes.

 The evening will feature a degustation menu celebrating three savoury dishes, a dessert and a petit four (a small bite-sized confectionary or savoury appetizer) with 90% of each dish needing to be made with local produce. Each meal with be paired with wine.

 The dishes should ideally tell a story as to why it is the Taste of Wairoa.

 A Taste of Wairoa will take place on June 26 at the Gaiety Theatre. Tickets will be $100 and limited to 100 people. Details on how to purchase your ticket will be provided at a later date.

 If you have what it takes to impress the judging panel then contactRubyanne Edwards on 06 838 4648 or 027 782 3963 for more information and to register.
