Celebrity chefs Karena & Kasey at the Kapiti Food Fair 2014

Proudly Sponsored by ANZ Paraparaumu

The Kapiti Food Fair is delighted to announce Karena & Kasey Bird will be the Celebrity Chefs at this year’s Kapiti Food Fair. “Karena & Kasey were the winners of Masterchef Duo 2014 so we are super excited they have agreed to take part in the Fair”, says Helene Judge, Fair Spokesperson.

Karena & Kasey will be host a two hour lunch time show on the day of the Fair and then spend up to one hour doing a Fair walkabout. We are also considering a Friday night Masterclass and we are hopeful that Karena & Kasey may have a cook book to sell by the time the Fair comes around.

“We are extremely excited to be involved with the Kapiti Food Fair as we think it is very important to support local growers and producers”, says Karena & Kasey.

Jeanine van Kradenburg, PartyPerfect Catering will be overseeing all activity in the celebrity kitchen. “We are honoured to be hosting Karena & Kasey as our Celebrity Chefs and we are confident they will help to bring more visitors to the Fair”, says Jeanine.

We are under no illusion the Fair is growing momentum and we want to continue exposing Kapiti as an ideal event location and to showcase wonderful local and New Zealand produced food & beverage. To handle growth, the Mazengarb Reserve will become the new home for the Fair and the Organisers are excited about the move. “We always knew a move was imminent and we are really pleased to have secured the Reserve as it ticks our important boxes like, room to expand, access to power and public toilets, an indoor space, a kitchen and critically parking”, says Helene.

Saturday 6th December 2014 – note your calendar now for a great gastronomic day out.
