Cray Coast Cuisine Entertainment for 2015                    was absolutely fantastic!!

BEER SCHOOL

We kickstarted the festival with a Coffee Stout.

For some of us it was breakfast and for others it was just a great start to a great day!

Oh and did we mention ... there was free beer?!

 Reni Garguilo from KIWIKAI

'Humble beginnings and a love for our kai brought my fathers recipe marinated raw fish to your plate from there we grew to offer kai with passion and aroha........ ' 

Today the whanau prepare and produce kai with an Maori/Asian flair.....we create almost anything with a strong emphasis on seafood - what our tupuna lived on.  Fresh produce, kaimoana, quality meats are sourced and organic when we can.  We strive to deliver the healthiest foods for the well being of whanau.  No added preservatives, additives, colourings, artificial sweeteners are used.  We work on a premise of 4 ingredients or less for each dish and all must be as natural as possible.

JAX HAMILTON

 Jax Hamilton returned this year as Cuisine MC. Last year, you enjoyed the flavour punch, lots of tasting, and fresh inspiration that Jax always offers with her cooking demonstrations.  Jax  infused her signature style in a menu of Kiwi classics, adding extra flavour and passion into her creations. This year, Seafesters  soaked up the vivacious Jax as she returned to host guest chefs. Foodies of all ages had a great time in a revamped Cuisine area. Not to let her fans down, Jax finished the day with a demonstration of her own. Jax' working motto of ‘giggles and nibbles’  kept us entertained all day.  Those who sat in on the demonstrations enjoyed both, in abundance!

"I love Seafest. I love the whole vibe. It has such a cool, family feel. I arrive and everyone is so welcoming...everybody waves and says 'how are you?' like we're one big family."
