Young chefs Zachariah Meads, 22, and Maureen Tiatia, 19, were given the chance to work in New Zealand’s newest pop-up restaurant at its latest venture to BUKO Fiji Pop-up at Malamala.
Kiwi chef William Mordido started the global travelling restaurant Buko late last year. Diners have already been treated to mouth-watering dishes in Melbourne and Auckland.
The goal is to take a small team of chefs, led by Mordido to showcase their food in existing establishments around Auckland, New Zealand and the world.
The menus are inspired by the best of what the area has to offer, paying respects to traditional and modern techniques and flavour combinations.
