We all know the kiwi trifle is a winner at this time of the year and it always will be. But I witnessed an apple crumble second to none. I had gorged on freshly minced cream pāua first and then jumped straight to the crunch of the apple crumble with custard and ice cream. And that was the end of my Christmas menu but it was good to be with whānau.
While on that note, if you're in Kāwhia whānau, enjoying the beautiful weather, please be aware, the marae is off-limits
