A little over 10 weeks on from the terror attacks in Christchurch and I guess it’s human nature that the shock is no longer as raw, our emotions have, for the most part, settled and most of us get on with our busy lives.

So, perhaps now is a good time to highlight some of the outstanding work that has been done by our hospitality community far and wide to support the Christchurch victims and their families.


In the aftermath of the Christchurch terror attacks, hear local chef Simo Abbari describe how he will use food to build a new bridge to understanding, respect and connection for all Kiwis and listen as hospitality professionals Ben Shewry and Sid and Chand Sahrawat share the outcomes of their tremendous initiatives to support the community.

What started as a follow-up report on the fundraising activities that have taken place has left me feeling an overwhelming pride to be living in New Zealand.

I hope this episode of Cuisine Bites will give you just a glimpse of the incredible power that the sharing of food can bring to your table. Have a listen…
