apparently the breakfast was muttonbirds, oysters and champagne --- no self respecting ngai tahu would have champagne with muttonbirds - they go best with Chianti or a pilsener!
I have been known to catch a few muttonbirds so can speak with a bit of authority.
We know that Parekura likes a good feed but $75,000 for breakfast???????
Last oral question for today....
Hon TAU HENARE to the Minister of Māori Affairs: Can he confirm that the “breakfast bash” where he launched the new Māori dictionary cost taxpayers up to $75,000?
Reminds me of the time Parekura was in Invercargill for a seafood conference - he came out with a group of us for a kai - and it was oyster season --
one dozen raw for starters
one dozen raw for entre
one dozen cooked and another dozen raw for main and
yip a dozen for dessert!!!!
