Episode 22: Neighbourhood
This week on Neighbourhood, we head to Northcote on Auckland’s north shore with Eva Evguenieva.
We see how the South East Asian community is rallying to find culturally appropriate rest-homes for their relatives, and talk to the designer of one of the Jewish community’s most treasured icons.
We meet a Chinese artist making waves with his culturally relevant illustrations and find out how a local teacher is fighting the obesity epidemic by tackling it at a grass-roots level.
Eva left her home country of Bulgaria with her family 13 years ago and has enjoyed modelling, promotional work and guest appearances since her arrival in NZ. She is probably best known for role as Eva the Bulgarian – a roving reporter for the SKY Sports café, but is currently in the process of completing a broadcasting degree. She lives in Northcote on Auckland’s North Shore with her husband and 2 daughters.
Northcote Dish Recipe
This week on Neighbourhood students at a local Northcote school learn the importance of healthy eating. Magnifique has shared her recipe for Chipati below for any one keen to make some at home.
2 cups white flour
11/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium carrots (grated)
¾ cup warm water to mix
1.In a large bowl, stir together the white flour, sugar, grated carrot and salt. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the oil and enough water to make a soft dough that is elastic but not sticky. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. Divide into 10 parts, or less if you want bigger breads. Roll each piece into a ball. Let rest for a few minutes.
2 .Heat a skillet until medium heat, and grease lightly. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out the balls of dough until very thin like a tortilla. Cook the chapati until the underside has brown spots, about 30 seconds, then flip and cook on the other side. Reduce the temperature of the skillet if chapati starts to burn. Continue with remaining dough.
