We're not done with sliders yet, oh no, no, no. I know they're everywhere but that's because they're so darn convenient. With it being Maori New Year (Matariki) next Saturday 28 Geoff Scott has created a modern take on the classic pork and puha boil up to celebrate.
This pork and puha slider showcases pork meat in the pattie, puha as a flavoursome pesto topping, kumara as a grilled "steak" and a crispy bacon mayonnaise to help stick it all together. I served these to the crew who came to watch the All Blacks on Saturday night.
Also for Matariki is some kai moana with kawakawa crème sauce, homemade Maori bread and this party starter from Masterchef winners Karena and Kasey Bird. Warren Elwin is using tamarillos to add a bit of get up and go. Sachie Nomura teaches us how to make Malaysian chicken satay and Nadia Lim talks the benefits of bacteria in her recipes for kimchi and homemade yoghurt.
