Nov. 21 – Te Puia, part 4
The same chef that made our mid-afternoon tea also made us dinner with foods that were available to the Maori. Since there were no animals in New Zealand from the point it broke off from Gondwana (SPELLING?) all the ones that are here now were either brought by the Maoiri or the Europeans. As a result we had meat items that were not available to the Maori of old. While some of the foods were unusual, we had a 4-course gourmet meal that was an epicureans delight. It was all very tasty, but WAY too much food!
