    Maori Barbie

    Barbie has released its first ever Maori doll, modelled after New Zealand sports journalist Melodie Robinson.


    The doll, which has "curly hair and beautiful brown skin", holds a microphone as part of her job as a journalist.




    Ms Robinson is among 20 women that have had Barbie dolls made in their image as part of an International Women's Day campaign.


    She is the first New Zealander to have a Barbie doll made in her likeness.




    "Seriously cool to be selected to inspire young girls with the first ever New Zealand Barbie - she's Maori and a commentator!" said Ms Robinson in an Instagram post.


    Ms Robinson was an international rugby union player who won two rugby world cups with New Zealand's women's team - the Black Ferns. She later went on to become a sports journalist.

    You're not man enough to handle her. You can say, "I wouldn't want to", but it remains that you couldn't if you tried.

    No argument there.



    Why do they require a ceremonial strap-on? Is there a Kiwi with a cowrie shell pee-wee on the forum?

    Did you know "strap-on" spelled backward is "no parts"?

    There was an old joke about the new divorced barbie doll being the most expensive... because she owned Kens' house Kens' car Kens' superannuation and Kens' boat and half of Kens' salary.

    I'm sure to Maori men she is a picture of beauty with a body to die for. Looks like she has just finished eating a tasty enemy.

    Maori kai (food) is prepared using a delicious combination of kai moana (food from the sea) and kai whenua (food from the land). In this blog we talk about some of the commonly used ingredients found in traditional Maori foods.

    Our indigenous Maori people were traditionally hunters, gatherers and crop farmers, who harvested food from forest, stream, sea and garden. Not surprising then that the ingredients that make it to our plates come from these sources.

    As you move from one Maori iwi (tribe) to the next, ingredients and preparation style vary – driven purely by what is available close by. Freshness and natural flavours forms the very essence of Maori cooking. Today, not only are Maori ingredients used in traditional style cooking such as a hangi, but also found in food that is prepared for the modern palet.

    Kumara
    Available in red, gold or orange varieties, kumara is known as sweet potato elsewhere. Brought to New Zealand from Polynesia by Maori ancestors along with vegetables like taro and yam, kumara is a particularly sweet ingredient and very popular in traditional Maori foods as well as modern Kiwi cuisine.

    Maori Culture
    New Zealand is the only place to call this vegetable a kumara as it is known as sweet potato elsewhere

    Seafood
    In a land where you’re never 140km from the sea, it comes as no surprise that kai moana forms an essential part of the cuisine and is consumed both in cooked and raw form.

    Whitebait (inanga), particularly those from the West Coast streams, is a favourite. Whitebait fritters or patties are delicious. Kuku or mussels are enjoyed on their own and in various forms of cuisine, including the hangi. New Zealand Greenshell mussels are world-renowned and extremely flavoursome. Other seafoods that make it into Maori cuisine are various fish (including raw fish), kina or sea eggs, tipa or scallops, koura or fresh water crayfish, paua or abalone and tio or oysters.

    Maori Culture
    Mussels while they can be enjoyed cold are included in the hangi in Maori culture

    Rewena pararoa
    Rewena pararoa (a traditional Maori sourdough) is a favourite and goes well with many meals or on its own as a snack. It is sold at many weekend markets, in speciality bread shops and served with a traditional hangi when you visit a marae or a Maori kitchen. This delicious bread is made from Maori potatoes (taewa tutaekuri).

    Common herbs and seasoning
    Again, it is the land and the sea we turn towards to infuse rich flavours into our food. What makes them richer is the nutritional value each one of these ingredients brings to the table.

    Harakeke or New Zealand flax is a superfood, rich in omega-3. It is available as unrefined oil and as seasoning. Horopito replaces traditional pepper in Maori cooking and comes in three varieties. Kawakawa, found in coastal areas, has a rich forest aroma and light minted flavour. It is dried and used as seasoning on various foods. Another common seasoning is korengo (sea weed), used in its raw state or dried form. Kowhitiwhiti or watercress, found near fresh water rivers, has a mild mustard flavour – great with all kinds of meats. Pikopiko fern tips are added to bring a forest flavour into a dish. Puha or sow thistle is served with pork. It does have a slightly bitter taste.

    Maori Culture
    Collecting herbs and seasoning is part of the enjoyment of eating in Maori Culture

    Manuka
    The wood chips of manuka tree are used to add flavour when smoking food. The tree is also a source of some of the best honey produced in New Zealand, renowned for its medicinal and antiseptic value.

    Many of these unique and delicious flavours are available to enjoy as part of the hangi meal we prepare and serve during our evening experience at Tamaki Maori Village. It gives us great joy to share the stories of this land and the journey of the food we serve from source to plate.

    Chocolate cake is another indigenous food that grows wild throughout the lovely and scenic natural environs of Niw Zillant. It can be found in most Maori food cabinets and is perfect for a pre-breakfast snack, for breakfast, as a mid-brunch appetizer, for lunch, as an afternoon nibble, for dinner, as an after-dinner desert, and as a bedtime refreshment. The chocolate cake consumed by Maoris can be taken in individual wedges, or inhaled in its entirety, straight down the pie hole.
