Lunch at the marae

The men from Arowhenua cooked us our lunch in a hangi.

A hangi is when Maori people cook their food in the ground. They dig a big hole and heat up rocks or steel by making a fire. They remove the ash and then they put in baskets of food wrapped in tinfoil. They covered that with mats and then put dirt on top to keep the heat in.

We had chicken, corn, carrot, stuffing, potatoes and pork. It was very hot when we opened our packets. It looked lovely. It smelled yummy. It tasted delicious.

After our meal we had pudding!
