I recently had the pleasure of appearing on Pete and Pio's Kai Safari on Choice TV, where host Sonia and I cooked my 'Just Peachy' Peach Chutney together - and what a fun day it was!
I was a bit nervous to start with and I am sure the crew, who must work with all sorts of folks, must have been thinking, "Okay! what kind of person are we going to have to deal with today?"
But when I first met Pete, Pio, and the crew at Max's Orchard, they were all so lovely.
Pete, the director, is a real foodie. He used to be a chef, and when we were filming in my kitchen he instinctively knew which cupboards he should go to, to find anything he was looking for!
The whole experience was so welcoming and inclusive. I really felt like part of the whanau!
