MasterChef favourite to visit Flaxmere Library

MasterChef favourite to visit Flaxmere Library

MasterChef favourite and celebrity chef Cameron Petley will speak and offer tastings at the Flaxmere library on Tuesday 14 October at 6pm.

Petley won New Zealand’s heart during his appearances on MasterChef New Zealand in 2011 and released his first cookbook, Hunter from the Heartland in 2012.

Cameron says when he’s not in the bush chasing pigs he’s in the kitchen cooking awesome meals for his family.

“The Masterchef journey was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do and it was a life changing experience for me”.

Hastings District Councillor Henare O’Keefe says Cameron has a no-nonsense approach that brings the best of ingredients from the wild to delight your taste-buds.

“This is an opportunity to reconnect with where our food really comes from and discover simple delicious ways to prepare fish, game and other good food…and hear some good yarns.”

Palates jaded by over-processed supermarket offerings and fast food will take delight in Cameron’s recipes.

In Hunter from the Heartland, Cameron gathers together about 40 of his favourite recipes for fish, seafood, pork, lamb, beef and poultry plus some great stories about hunting, gathering and fishing trips.

The talk will take place in the recently renovated Flaxmere Library, part of the Flaxmere Community Centre. Tickets for the event cost $10.00 and are available from the Flaxmere, Hastings and Havelock North Libraries or online at Eventfinda.
