The challenge-based cooking show phenomenon has taken the world by storm and a new series coming soon to Maori Television is set to delight foodie and non-foodie audiences alike.
The competitive cooking show will see marae teams from all over the country compete against each other.
“The new show blends some of the best challenge-based cooking shows into a fresh new format with a distinctly Maori flavour,” says associate producer and presenter Nevak Rogers.
Tumanako Productions, the production company making the new series, is now calling for applications from marae around the country.
Eight successful marae teams will battle it out in the kitchen, showcasing their local delicacies alongside their culinary skills and could take away tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes.
“If the ringawera [chefs] from your marae are world-famous for serving up great kai, we want to hear from you,” says Rogers.
“We’re looking for ringawera guns from across the motu to go head-to-head in a series of challenges that will test a range of skills from kai prep and fundraising to cooking budget meals and creating signature dishes.”
Applications close November 1, 2012.
