Five great courses for one great cause

The great cause - Everybody Eats
"Everybody Eats is all about feeding people. We rescue food that would otherwise go to landfill and feed it to people on a pay as you feel basis."

Kai: redefining kiwiana -  the fundraiser was amazing! 

The Purpose
The Bachelor of Arts in Culinary Arts at AUT hosted Kai showcasing the values and beliefs they have learned in their degree, and 'walked the talk' of the food philosophies they collectively believe in. 

The Promise
A 5-course degustation redefining the kiwiana of today.

The Verdict
A triumph!

" triumph - a very great success, achievement or victory "
