Panelists include Connie Clarkson, the Singapore-born author of Asian Flavours who has an intricate knowledge of Asian cuisine found in Auckland; as well as Paul Spoonley, Distinguished Professor Massey University, who has studied food introduced by migrant communities. They are joined by Te Kohe Tuhaka, actor and chef of Marae Kai Masters fame, and Ben Bayly, excutive chef at The Grove and Baduzzi, with a background working in Michelin-starred restaurants in London and France.
