‘Kaimoana and cake’ explores nostalgia and sensation around celebratory food in Australia and New Zealand and the Polynesian ties to food and adornment. Kaimoana (seafood) and cake are associated with family, communal eating, celebration and the intermingling of European and Polynesian culinary traditions: steamed mussels and trifle; paua and pavlova, ‘raw’ fish and pudding. Forms and textures are juxtaposed: natural and cultivated, raw and processed which echoes the dual cultures of my family and at my table.
