Peter Peeti

Presenter, Hunting Aotearoa TV series and Producer, Hikoi NZ Ltd

Original and current residence?
Spent most of my life in Mourea in Rotorua, Ngati Pikiao turf. Grew up with whanau, cousins and friends who taught me how to harvest food from the area. Food like trout, eels, kewai, pikopiko, puha, watercress, mushrooms, berries, nuts, fruit from the neighbours trees, wild pigs, deer, ducks, turkeys and the list goes on!! No one starves in our village!

Wild Food Judge Credentials – what is your connection with food?
As a qualified Chef, I found cooking various foods to taste delicious is what I’ve always enjoyed. It tastes even sweeter when you gather the kai. From harvest to preparing to cooking the meal and finally watching people eating your kai is what keeps me connected to the food, the land and to the people.

Your favourite part of Whakatāne?
Diving for seafood around the Whakatāne heads. There’s always a surprise for the keen diver lurking beneath those waters. Various kaimoana that all start with the letter “K” Kina, Koura and Kuku need I say more!

The most under rated ingredient is…
The humble Kahawai should be respected a lot more by anglers. A fish that’s easy to target, very versatile, delicious as smoke fish, tasty as raw fish and my favourite simple boiled kahawai steaks with just salt, onion and butter. There’s even a secret to boiling believe it or not, DON’T BOIL TOO HARD!, allow to simmer gently for a softer result.

Favourite wild food?
Bbq venison steak entree (LARGE) with a wild pork and puha boil up for main. That smell of wild pork singed with puha or watercress simmering is such a draw card for my nose which leads to me salivating at the mouth. The smell is as good as a freshly baked rewana bread or banana cake!!

What is the biggest mistake/s in an aspiring Local Wild Food Challenge cook can make?
Please challengers keep it simple and make sure we can taste the main ingredient. That’s it from me and remember I’m always hungry so don’t be shy!

Wild Food Judge Credentials – what is your connection with food?
Wild food is at the centre of our family life. We hunt, fish, gather and grow food as a family. We don’t buy meat or fish at all – everything comes from the bush. At this time of year we are also living out of our garden.

Your favourite part of Whakatāne?
The whole district and all the people in it.

The most under rated ingredient is…

Favourite wild food?
Um, that is almost impossible to answer. At the moment I am desperately in love with hare. It is so succulent at this time of year.

To be safe and conservative with ingredients. Experiment with food, take risks with flavours and see where it takes you. Your dish may be something no one else has thought to do and be our next winner

What is the biggest mistake/sin an aspiring Local Wild Food Challenge cook can make?
Overcooking!!…unless it’s meant to be tough and/or dry, there’s just no excuse.

The property we own is a magical one-acre in the countryside with mature trees and a babbling brook running through the middle of it. I originally bought the property about 35 years ago.

We built our boulangerie (French bakehouse) four years ago using fabulous 200 year old windows from a pub in England and the stunning front door from a house in Paris, circa 1890. The internal lights and fittings include original vintage industrial fittings and antiques from all over Europe that we collected and shipped back to New Zealand in a container.

Wild Food Judge Credentials – What is your connection with food? 
My connection with food is varied. I have always loved food and cooking, and ate out a lot when I travelled on business in earlier career positions. My current artisan bread business is based on “wild yeast”, microscopic creatures that have to be fed and watered to keep alive.
I trained in traditional bread making with a French baker friend with 30 years experience. I also completed a course at the prestigious UK School of Artisan Food at Welbeck Estate in the Sherwood Forest area (yes where Robin Hood hung out).

Your favourite part of Whakatāne? 
We have the best climate in the country.

The most under rated ingredient is…
Black pepper has to be in everything.

Favourite wild food
Oysters!!!

What is the biggest mistake/sin an aspiring Local Wild Food Challenge cook can make?
Overcooking the dish. To me cooking is about timing. Overcook and not only flavours can change or be lost but also the texture of the dish can be adversely altered.

The Local Wild Food Challenge is at Ōhope’s Mahy Reserve on February 2nd, with gates opening at 2pm. Challenge entrants must prepare dishes using wild ingredients sourced from land and ocean. This year entrants who register prior to the event will receive a produce bag filled with foodie treats from local producers.
