Charles Royal Maori Food Trails

Charles Royal Maori Food Trails

Charles Royal is New Zealand’s answer to the reintroduction of a tradition that many had never heard of – cooking with New Zealand indigenous Mãori herbs, spices and flavours. The knowledge that is imparted by Charles on each tour is amazing – with each one always a little different. Best of all, Charles is simply fun to be around. His whãnau are inspirational – they all help out with the business, including wife Tania who has many culinary skills herself. Their children Cinny (16) and Pipi T (13) are often overheard teaching Charles more of his native language, te reo Mãori. Listen to the songs, stories and the history of where Charles’s ancestors came from thousands of years ago. Learn about local tribal history, food, plants and their medicinal properties. Visit road-side stores and sample the local produce. Charles’ food trails can include exclusive Marae (village) stays, menu consultation, camping trips, home-cooked meals and cooking demonstrations.
