Cooking hangi in New Zealand
Do you know the traditional dish of New Zealand? I know only one food which is named “hangi.”
When I was an elementary school student, my Assistant Language Teacher who came from New Zealand told that to us. He said “It tastes very good!” So I’ll show you how to make it.
First, dig a big hole in the ground. After doing that, put some hot stones and so many foods. They use chicken, pork, beef, cabbage, potatoes, etc. The seasoning is only salt.
That’s all! It’s easy, isn’t it?
There is an interesting rule. Women can’t go near the hole. Only men can cook it. However women must prepare foods.
Let’s taste it when you go to New Zealand!
