Gourmet Hāngi

Fire. Earth. Food. Plate up!

The popular Gourmet Hāngi makes it’s return to Western Springs

This will not be a Hāngi as most people have experienced before. Each session of the Taste of Auckland festival will see a different chef or restaurant team bring their own ideas and ingredients, put them into the hot earth and hours later serve up hundreds of portions to festival visitors.

Our returning host and Hāngi masters, Rewi Spraggon and Riki Bennett, will be joined this year by guest chefs, who will each offer festival visitors their own unique spin on the traditional Māori Hāngi.
