KINA AND KUMARA
Mr Kohere also refers to another favourite Maori dish. Kinas, or sea-eggs, taken with mealy kumara, he considers, is hard to beat. White kinas in season, after being steeped in fresh water for two days, is the nicest thing there is. Certainly its looks are by no means appetising. From the days of Adam and Eve down to the present day, looks are not a reliable guide. Kinas are in season in January.
