Broadcast: 14 Jan 2017
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

A small drive out to the town of Lyttleton will lead you to Roots Restaurant picturesquely settled between a volcano and the Banks Peninsula.

  • The Maori people know the area as ‘The pantry of New Zealand’ and Roots has certainly used this opportunity to forage delicious local, fresh food.
  • One of the most famous dishes is the H-beef which is served completely with local, in season ingredients
  • The Kowa-Kowa berry is a special, secret ingredient used that even Trevor had not seen before!
