Charm from the Chathams

Francesca (from Italy) and Kaa’i (Tainui)

Kaa’i and Francesca, our friends from Rekohu/Chatham Islands have been in Auckland again, this time supporting and judging the culinary efforts of children in South Auckland, and extending the marketing of their new unique freeze-dried honey from the Chathams.  They are also finalists in the NZ Artisan Awards…to be decided later in the year..

It’s always great to spend time with these entrepreneurial women, so skilled in their different fields – Kaa’i as a head chef and teacher, Francesca as a marketing manager and administrator- both enthusiasts for quality wild foods and creativity,  and so warm and complementary in their relationship.  Lucky Chatham Islands Hotel guests!
