Māori chef’s cuisine served on the World’s largest cruise ship

E rua piriona tāra te utu ki te hanga i te waka nui rawa o te ao e kīia nei ko Harmony of the Seas nā te kamupene Royal Caribbean.  Ko te tohunga kai o runga he uri Maori nō Ngai Tahu a Chef David Reihana.  No Whakaata Maori te whiwhi i tae atu mātou ki Barcelona ki te whakamānutanga o tenei kaipuke me te kapo ake i ngā mahi a Chef Reihana. 

He uri no Ngāi Tahu a Chef Reihana. Ko ia te tohunga kai kei te kei o te kaipuke nui rawa atu o te ao a Harmony of the Seas.

“I use to be a Chef for the company and worked my way right through and I use to be the Chef on the biggest cruise.”

I timata a Chef Reihana i tāna mahi hei kaihoroi rīhi i Tihi o Maru, ā, nā tōna ngākaunui ki te ako me tāna whakapau kaha kua tipu, kua rea tōna matatau ki te mahi nei, ā, ināianei ko ia tētahi o ngā tino tohunga kai mō Royal Caribbean.

“My role right now is Corporate Chef going from ship to ship around the world in the fleet I do alot of culinary audits as well as new menu impletations.”

Tekau mā waru ngā wāhi whare hoko kai papai rawa atu o runga i te kaipuke, nei e whakahaerehia ana e Chef Reihana.

“I'm not just dealing with one restaurant so for me if I was to work on just one restaurant it would be pretty boring for me pretty quickly.  I can definitely do the menus do the costings and all the work but here I'm doing 18 restaurants.”

No Whakaata Maori te honore nui ki te kapo ake i te whakarewatanga o te waka nui rawa o te ao o harmony of the seas, i whakarerea ki Barcelona i runga i te moana o meteriana.

Ka puta motuhake te roanga ake o tenei purongo e pā ana kia Chef Reihana mā runga i a Native Affairs hei te wiki e tū mai nei.
