Bringing world food to Wellington suburbs

Jun 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: Front Page Layout, Latest News, News

THE Flavours! world food fairs are bringing international cuisine to Wellington suburbs.

The next is at the Ngaio Town Hall on June 11.

The first of the fairs, at Karori’s St John’s Hall, had Thai, Malaysian, Greek, Italian and French stalls tempting visitors all day, including two-year-old Jaime Faisal.

Twins Claire and Eve Davis (below) were on their way home from a winning soccer game when they stopped in to try the Turkish delight.

Passerby Rachel McFedries said it was hard choosing what to have for lunch, although one of her favourites was the feijoa Turkish delight.

“I [also] tried some of the Malaysian food, some of the sweet sticky rice that they had, that was really good too,” she said.

Joanna Marquet, event co-ordinator for Flavours!, said the day went well with plans for the next few fairs to be held in Ngaio, Kilbirnie and Lower Hutt.

“It’s a great way to have a taste from different cultures and to get an idea of the kinds of food they offer.”

Karori marked the first of the Flavours! events, which will run every second Saturday of the month until August in local community halls.

Each fair will have a range of different stalls, some which may not have been in the previous fairs.

There will also be cultural performances and cooking demonstrations on the day.

The big Flavours! fairs, with up to 20 stalls, are held annually, while the smaller fairs will circulate around Wellington between autumn and spring.

The dates for all the fairs are on the Flavours! website,
