Kasey and Karena are sisters from the small coastal village of Maketu in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand and were the winners of Masterchef New Zealand 2014.
They have just won the “Best TV Cookbook in the World” at the Gourmand World Cookbook awards 2016 with their Self-published cookbook ‘For The Love Of…”
You may have watched them on their TV show ‘Karena and Kasey’s Kitchen Diplomacy’ where they travelled the world discovering different cultures and food and they are also food writers for ‘The Herald on Sunday’ as well as the food editors for Mana Magazine.
Kasey and Karena’s new book ‘Hungary’ has just hit the shelves so be sure to check it out before watching them cook up a storm of delicious seafood in the Culinary Pavilion.
We are very grateful to have Kono and Kiwa Oysters bring the girls to the 2017 Festival.
