NATURE’S FIRELESS COOKER: How to catch & cook a meal in 5 minutes.
Editors Note: “Rotorua’s two adjacent pools - one icy cold - the other boiling hot. Maoris catch freshwater crayfish in the frigid stream and cook them in the steaming cauldron nature provides alongside.”
A woman in traditional Māori dress stands beside a stream watching an elder dive for koura. Calling to him in Māori, he replies and continues to enjoy diving. He emerges with one latched onto his fingers. He immediately bites the koura then throws it into the adjacent hot pool. An excited conversation takes place between the elder and the woman, as they cook and eat these succulent little freshwater crayfish. He speaks in te reo Māori about the koura biting his fingers and then says in English “You kill me, and I kill you!” Then continues enjoying this delicacy.
Ko tēnei tētahi o ngā kiriata tuatahi ki te mau i te reo Māori tāpiri ki ngā whakāhua.
