Taita for Lunch

Update: 18 October 12

Taita for Lunch!

The Taita Pomare Anglican Mission Project held its third holiday "Cook –Off" during the first week of the recent school holidays.

Based on television's popular "Master Chef" programme, the event brings together families and children who cook a shared lunch for around 60 people. Recipes are based on nutritious and affordable ingredients. The event has grown each time it has been staged and this year moved from St Matthew's Church Hall, over the road to the Taita Community Centre.

Taita Community Trust Coordinator Jo Logan said "we were delighted to be able to assist by providing the venue for this popular community event. Sharing food and cooking together is at the heart of a great community". 

The Taita team was also assisted by girls from Chilton Saint James School who organised games for the children prior to starting the cooking.

Judge Mary Tautau, a well known resident from Taita Pomare, awarded prizes based on collaborative work with the winning family receiving three hours of free gardening labour along with three hours free use of the Taita Community Hall. 

All families took home a recipe book and a food parcel so they could try out the other dishes they had sampled.

May the love of Almighty God enfold you!
