AWRF 2009: Wekas and Queen Cakes

Kim works in the readers services team at Central where she is famed for her chocolate ganache.  Her note from the Festival:
"Wekas and Queen Cakes" was a lively and entertaining discussion about food culture in New Zealand. The presenters, Alexa Johnston (Ladies a Plate) and David Veart (First Catch Your Weka), were absolute naturals and the discussion careened joyfully over a wide range of topics from the history of New Zealand cooking to the sociology of how we eat.

As well as the excellent speakers, the audience were great too. From the ever-amusing Peta Mathias to the elderly lady who wondered aloud if cows still have brains because she can’t seem to buy them anymore, it was all as light and sweet as grandma’s jam sponge. Lovely!
