EXCITING NEWS!!!! On Friday the 27th of February @ 1.30pm – Kasey and Karena (master Chef winners) will be coming to visit our students. We are extremely honoured to have them and welcome you all to join us on this afternoon.
“Despite their hectic new lifestyle, sisters Karena and Kasey Bird have not been tempted to move from their Maketu home since their 2014 Masterchef win. They still live next door to each other in the small Bay of Plenty town. ”It’s a safe haven for us to unwind and be creative,” say the pair who have never had any formal cooking training. Kasey was studying accounting and Karena a quality control coordinator at Poutiri Trust before they entered the competition. “Now, we do not have typical days any more. One day we are doing cooking demos at food shows, the next we are in our office writing recipes, the next we are doing photo shoots for magazines.” Their favourite kind of day? “Those we get to spend in the kitchen, perfecting dishes we have thought up.”
