Local Wild Food Challenge

December 10th | Mataatua Te Mānuka Tūtahi, Whakatane
see more dates...

Whakatāne will host its second Local Wild Food Challenge, an event that has grown from small beginnings on the shores of Eastbourne, New Zealand to a worldwide experience.

The challenge is to get outside and hunt, gather, forage, barter or fish for local wild food and create a dish of your choice, then write a story about it. If you are from Whakatāne, you will know that hunting, fishing, and gathering is a way of life for us. Our region is brimming with wild food and natural abundance, which makes it perfect to hold an event with the purpose of creating an awareness of precious natural resources and the environment.

This year's challenge will be held at the Whakatāne Heads where spectators and supporters will enjoy a day of cooking demonstrations, local food stalls, entertainment and activities such as kite-making, while the competitors create their own unique wild food dishes.
