Kai To Pie: Auckland On A Plate

On 12 June Auckland Museum opens an all-new exhibition called Kai to Pie: Auckland on a Plate. The free exhibition celebrates Auckland's extraordinary wealth of people and cultures, its fertile abundance of land, sun and sea, all through the lens of food.

Auckland's story is unique. It's a story that can be told through the dining tables of the 181 ethnic groups that call New Zealand's largest city home. Kai to Pie recognises the role food plays in family, belonging and culture. From an exploration of the sumptuous and extraordinary 1844 Remuera feast - which boasted a menu of 9,000 sharks and 11,000 baskets of potatoes - to picnics under a chorus call of cicadas, from the White Lady pie cart to conversations about the future of food, Kai to Pie reveals and revels in what it means to be an Aucklander.

It is Auckland on a plate. And it has to be tasted to be believed.
