Ninety Mile Beach

Saturday 6 December, 7pm

Steve Logan and Al Brown share a love for fishing, hunting and the great outdoors. They also run one of the country’s most successful up-market restaurants, Logan Brown in downtown Wellington. The pair trade the comfort of their restaurant for life on the road as they head for the hills and chase down some of New Zealand’s finest and freshest foods in a third series of their award-winning adventure-cooking show Hunger For The Wild.

The show sees the boys travel the length of New Zealand from Ninety Mile Beach in the Far North down to remote Stewart Island in the South. Stopping off in some spectacular spots in between; the historic Hokianga Harbour; Rakaia Huts at the mouth of a beautiful braided Canterbury river; the dramatic Mackenzie high country; Great Barrier Island (with a cityside stop off in Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour); Waimate’s snow-clad Hunter Hills; Nelson’s bountiful Upper Moutere valley; the seafood rich seas of Kaikoura; and the stunning Mokau River in Taranaki.

In episode one Logan and Brown are cruising Ninety Mile Beach sourcing seafood for an Ahipara Bouillabaisse. They hook up with some old mates who are trying their luck kontiki fishing. Kontiki fishing is a bit of potluck so perfect for a bouillabaisse, a mixed seafood stew.
