MAORI CULTURE - Queenstown, New Zealand , WI 

  Commentry for the above Dining:[ Total Postings : 1 ]
  New Zealand Wine & Hungi
 
When traveling to Queenstown, New Zealand last fall I was introduced to the Maori culture. I made the trip for a wedding and I ended up taking part in many traditions I will never forget. Apart from exploring the south island during the five hour drive to Queenstown from the airport, there were many amusing outdoor activites such as boungy jumping, kayaking, and jet-boating.

My favorite day of the trip was when the whole wedding party took part in a wine tasting tour, visiting multiple vineyards. The wine was amazing and the vineyards were beautiful!

The wedding took place at a winery and included the Maori Haka dance. After dancing the night away, the next day is traditionally is reserved for a Hungi feast. The entire family and wedding party spent the day together outside playing games and preparing food. Chicken, pork, and lamb as well as various vegetables were all wrapped in cloth. A hole was dug in the ground and all the food was buried on top of fire hot stones. The food cooked in the dirt for hours! It was the best!

The wine and Hungi food were tasty and symbolic to the New Zealand culture; rich, earthy, and simplistic.
