As the host, Terese says that the food theme will be ‘Organic Island Bounty’, consisting of:  Organic soup made from the islands vege garden.  Organic Island kumara brownie.  Island Kawakawa water or tea with island honey. 

Matiu Somes Island has a fascinating Māori and European history. Animal and people were quarantined on this island during war time .

In more recent time the island has been under a reforestation programme and now is a sanctuary for endangered species.
