Grandparent/Koroua/Kuia Reading Week and Taste of Hāngi

The food quickly being placed into the wire baskets.

The wet sheets being placed over top of the food trays.

The wet sacks about to be placed on top. 

The soil is carefully put on top of the sacks. It is pressed down and any escaping steam is quickly covered with soil.

Four Hours later...

The food being lifted from the Hangi.

The hot volcanic rocks and wire basket.

Enough food to feed over 800 people!
