            Papers on Language (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

            • RRP: $115.00

            • Available At Publisher

            The second edition of Papers on Language does not have as broad a range of articles as the first but there is greater attention paid to certain topics like literacy and oral expression. The opening paper, Said, heard, written, read, is about literacy in Aotearoa and also opens up... a discussion of the oral environment. The richness of oral environments is considered again in the eleventh paper on socio-linguistic research done at St Stephens. The second paper, What do we know about the mark on the wall? might concern cognition as well as literacy. As before there is work on Maori grammar. Strengthening language: some more thoughts on Maori and Samoan, looks at strategies for language retention and was given at a conference to celebrate the Samoan millennium in Apia. The transmission of an ethic through language and song is considered in An ethic of empathy. There is something of this in the material from research on St Stephens quoted in chapter 11. Some of the features discussed are again turned to in the last paper, Wahi Rangahau, which considers language and ritual. The final paper is also about inquiry and this edition tries to builds on and to consolidate the sense of exploration in the earlier edition.

            Kai Time: Tasty Modern Maori Food
             

            Kai Time: Tasty Modern Maori Food (Paperback, 2011 reprint)

            By Peeti, Peter

            Drawing from the abundant fare that the New Zealand land and sea have to offer, charismatic Maori chef and television personality Peter Peeti shares his culinary knowledge and favourite recipes in this wonderful book. Based on the popular show on Maori TV, Kai Time on the Road (n...ow in its sixth season), Peeti reveals not just a flair for cooking but also his passion for hunting, fishing and procuring ingredients direct from the source. Including such delectable dishes as: Eel and Whitebait Omelette; Venison with Blackberry Jus, Kumara and Potato Rosti and Pikopiko; and Roast Garlic and Thyme Prawns on Coconut Jasmine Rice, Peeti redefines Maori cuisine by blending traditional Maori ingredients and practices with the many modern culinary styles of New Zealand. The end result is overflowing with melt-in-the-mouth flavour and all recipes are remarkably easy to create. The best way to cook up a feed, according to Peeti, is directly after the fishing or hunting trip, on a makeshift stove on the beach or in the bush as the sun starts to go down - the food simply couldn't be fresher or tastier or the surroundings more inspiring.
