A good weekend.
« on: March 07, 2019, 05:32:29 PM »
Last weekend was exceptionally good weather. Three yachts and a big powerboat decided on a game of pool at Furneau Lodge at Endeavour Inlet. Warrior won the impromtu pool competition by a long shot. Just proves that the whole crew had a mis-spent youth.

The highlight of the trip was dinner aboard the powerboat. Erving; (no P.) They had done some hunter gathering around the Brothers Islands on the way across Cook Strait.

Dinner started with raw Kahawai and Wasabi sauce. I was a bit dubiuos about that but it was very good. Then dinner got better. Blue cod in beer batter, then paua fritters. I think you call them abalone and yours are white, ours a black. The fritters end up a dark green colour but tasty. Just a delicacy.

The highlight was venison. I have never had meat like that before. That is a morsel or two I will never forget. Somewhere in there was a potato bake.

The hunter was aboard the boat and he cooked. He told me the venison was all about care. Shot in the Uraweras. Neck shot so the animal doesn't know what has happened so no adrenalin or stress. Meat helicoptered out and into a chiller for ten days to hang then cut up and frozen. I saw the care he took with cooking it on a hot plate.

Beginning of March next year we will have to go back and give Warrior a good thrashing on the pool table.
