Puha & Pakeha
As seen in Cuisine magazine:
Modern Māori Fusion
Taking elements of Māori kai and adding modern flavours.
Puha & Pākehā started in the summer of 2014 when Belinda and Jarrad saw an opportunity to reconnect people with the kai of Aotearoa. Traditional Māori kai was largely overlooked by the public but with the injection of new cooking styles and modern flavours people would have a reason to give it a try. So Puha & Pākehā is a harmonious blend of two cultures, taking elements of old school Māori kai & adding modern flavours. Our kai is served from our retro caravan at markets, events, corporate functions and weddings.
