Kiwis around the country are hoping to see a finale to their America's Cup dream tomorrow morning. They will make the commute to work early to ensure they have a spot by the screen at 8.15am when the first race is scheduled to begin. Team NZ are just one win shy of being able to claim victory over Oracle Team USA. So it seems fitting to make the most of the excited early start with a delicious spread.

We've asked Food Hub editor Jo Elwin to help out with some culinary inspiration. Check out her recipe suggestions:
