West coast whitebait frenzy

The west coast of New Zealand and their love affair with whitebait is pretty amazing. Where else would the lateness of their run would make front page news? Where else would a town dedicate an entire festival to these tiny fish – with shops showing kids paintings of white bait. Where else would every restaurant have a white bait speciality? Where else would a hotel lift have whitebait artwork? Where else would you be able to get a glass of wine with the name whitebait (p.s. It goes well with whitebait).

Luckily we love a bit of whitebait. So far we’ve tested..
