Katrina Russell organised, baked and spent many hours in the planning of Waitangi Day providing the NZ fare. Lots of L&P fizzy drink, a NZ soft drink was a special treat. Our baked goods consisted of Louise Cake, Batchelor’s buttons, Orange Crisps, Hokey Pokey biscuits and NZ Lolly Cake.
We also had NZ chips – Rashuns, Curlies and Green Onion chips with homemade French Onion Dip. We also served Pudding with Kiwi fruit.
While eating we watched a video of a Maori group singing Poi E and doing their dance with poi’s. After this we watched the men doing the Haka.
We had a lot of good feedback from everyone who enjoyed tasting new foods and learning a little bit more about our “neighbours across the ditch”.
