Robert Whaitiri (centre), organiser of the Kai in the Bay Māori food festival, is seen with competitors in the marae cook-off challenge. From left are Nan Nuku (Ōmahu marae), Mary Jones (Mihiroa marae), Joe Daley (Pukemokimoki marae) and Rose White (Kohupātiki marae), in the kitchen at the Eastern Institute of Technology marae, Te Ara o Tāwhaki, in Taradale. The cook-off was part of the festival, whose organisers aim to promote 'a healthy lifestyle [while] retaining the traditional food of our forefathers'. In the 2000s many marae menus are changing to reflect a focus on healthy eating.
