Out Standing in their Fields
has now been to Kerikeri with local chefs Colin Ashton and Rolf Simons cooking up a storm on Sunday 16th October.
The live and free cooking demonstration was part of a nationwide series of cooking shows designed to showcase food-excellence during the time of the Rugby World Cup. Kerikeri was the second last stop on this tour, inspiring flair of cooking with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.
Award-winning chef Colin Ashton and top-chef Rolf Simons showed us just how it is done, combining expertise with produce-availability to create unique fusions of flavour and texture.

Whilst Rolf Simons focused on complexities of flavour with his starter of Pork dumplings with sweet and sour cucumber-salad and coriander-chilli-tamarind sauce
; followed by Brioche en croute with sauteed, exotic mushrooms
