Wild Kai Festival – Cape Palliser

It was a windy Saturday night on the Wairarapa coast but that didn’t stop over 100 intrepid chefs (and helpers) from arriving at the Waimeha Camping Village to serve up their wild kai and sample others’ offerings.

With four categories up for judging we sampled seafood, vegetarian, meat and desserts – all with a wild kai focus.

The winners were:

  • KAIMOANA: Lee-Rose Locke – Seared blue fin tuna
  • VEGETARIAN: Sheryl Rodderkirk – Kumara fries & kawakawa & watercress pesto and mayo
  • MEAT: Sheryl Rooderkirk – Venison & field mushroom dumplings with watercress broth
  • DESSERT: Donald Addis – Upside down pear cake
  • OVERALL SUPREME WINNER: Sheryl Rooderkirk

Huge thanks to the sponsors who are always there to support local community events King & Henry, Scotty’s Meats, Pain & Kershaw, Steinlager

JP had a bit of stage fright as he welcomed all to the night but soon relaxed and was able to celebrate what is sure to become an annual event.
