Harata Neera, New Zealand Certificate in Cookery Level 4 Student
An apprentice chef with an outstanding future, Napier’s Harata Neera has scored two major successes within the same week.
Employed at Pacifica on Marine Parade, Harata won the Regal Marlborough Salmon Supporting Chef category in the Food Hawke’s Bay on 19 May 2014 and , she was named the Top Hospitality Modern Apprentice at the Greenmeadows Rotary and EIT Hawke’s Bay Trade Awards.
I started my career in a five star resort in Noosa, Queensland in 1990. I went on to cook in a fine dining seafood restaurant in Sydney, then completed several seasons in an Australian ski chalet, before returning to Napier. I have been teaching culinary arts at the Eastern Institute of Technology since 1999. I have a passion for teaching people the craft of cooking and enjoy using the high quality produce available in Hawkes Bay and using modern trends in gastronomy for our culinary arts students.
