Rewi Spraggon

Rewi Spraggon and his team from the Māori Kitchen had no idea how popular their food would be when they initially lit their hāngi pit in Takutai Square at the beginning of Matariki 2019. But that popularity became as clear as that starlight pre-dawn sky just a few hours later, when a lunchtime queue snaked all the way around the lawn and this year, from Tuesday 30 June to Saturday 4 July, Rewi is back and will be serving delicious manuka-smoked hāngi lunchboxes and hāngi pies. Here, Rewi talks about indigenous people’s deep understanding of sustainability, and the pleasure of holding a community celebration in the heart of the city.
