Matariki banquet to be repeated

6:44 am on 10 May 2010

A gourmet Matariki banquet at Turangawaewae Marae last year went so well, the exercise is to be repeated.

Waatea News reports chef Peter Gordon from Ngati Kahungunu will be back in Ngaruawahia on 27 June to rattle the pots and raise money for the Hineraukatauri music therapy centre.

Sous chef Nancy Pirini, from Te Whanau A Apanui, says the best part of the job is working with the marae's ringa wera and she can't wait to work with the ladies again.
