“It looks like a boil up gone wrong..”

Toroi is a fermented concoction of kaimoana and huawhenua. It’s another example of our traditional food preservation methods but should this tradition continue? The response is a bit mixed ?

Kai o Nehe is a new mini-series where rangatahi Māori try the delicacies of their ancestors.

For a long time kuia and koroua have enjoyed and devoured some pretty interesting delicacies across the country.

But do we still hold them in such high esteem today?

And can rangatahi in the 21st century hack the full on flavours of traditional kai?

This is part of our reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi Media, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho.

Stay tuned for a new episode every week.
