Opportunity awaits

passionate junior chef

PASSIONATE: Gabby Sanders has always had an

interest in cooking and says food can be used as a

way to bring people together.

Gabby Sanders is travelling to Australia to compete for a golden chef’s hat award.

Reporter Emily Moorhouse talks to Sanders about her unlikely favourite foods as

a child, her thought process behind a successful menu and why she is passionate

about cooking

GABBY SANDERS

remembers trying to help her

mum in the kitchen when she

was a little girl was probably

“quite annoying”.

But fast forward 20 years

and that curiosity in the kitchen

has paid off – next month

she will be in Melbourne

representing the South Island

in the grand finals of the 2022

Nestlé Golden Chef’s Hat

Award

Lengthy

delay in

centre

rebuild an

‘injustice’

• By Emily Moorhouse

AN 11-YEAR delay in rebuilding

a community facility has been

described as an “injustice” to a

“forgotten suburb”.

Shirley locals were

promised a new community

centre after the old one at 10

Shirley Rd was demolished

following the February 22, 2011

earthquake.

However, the city council is

only now starting the discussion

of a possible rebuild.

Community group Shirley

Road Central chair Jennifer

Dalziel has been advocating for

a rebuild since the old facility

was demolished, and described

the whole process as “hugely

frustrating”.

“My position is the injustice

of it,” she said.

“They call Shirley the forgotten

suburb, and recently with

Emmett St flooding and no

one came to do anything, it’s

like Shirley is just left out of

everything.”

Dalziel said the city council told

locals there would be a rebuild of

the centre at its original site but in

2016, the idea was dropped.

In 2018, there were two

feasibility studies carried out

but both were rejected, Dalziel

said.

No decision

yet to

appeal

declining of

rehabilitation

facility

• By Fiona E lis

THE DEPARTMENT of

Corrections has until February 9

to appeal after permission to build

a contentious rehabilitation centre

for violent offenders in St Albans

was declined.

However, it is remaining tightlipped

on whether or not it is likely

to do so.

Last week the Bristol Street

Resource Consent Hearing panel

declined to grant resource consent

for the Bristol St facility, fo lowing

a hearing in November.

The proposal would have seen

up to 12 men serving sentences

of home detention at 14 Bristol St

while participating in a violenceprevention

programme. Men

with significant untreated mental

health issues would not be eligible

to participate in the programme.

In their decision, city council

appointed commissioners Anthony

Hughes-Johnson QC and Ken

Lawn said they were not satisfied

the site was appropriate for such a

facility.

Corrections acting regional

commissioner Chris O’Brien-

Smith did not answer Nor’West

New’s question on whether an

appeal would be made, but said

corrections would spend the

next few weeks reflecting on the

commissioners’ findings.

Third feasibility study for centre under way

• From page 1

In May last year, Dalziel, along

with Shirley residents passionate

about the rebuild of the community

centre, created a petition

advocating for it. They gained more

than 1200 signatures from the

community.

They presented the petition, along

with two letters from Christchurch

East MP Poto Williams and

Christchurch Central MP Duncan

Webb, to the city council as part

of a submission for the Long Term

Plan. It was then agreed that a

feasibility study would be carried

out for the rebuild.

That feasibility study has begun

with staff gathering information on

cost estimates for four development

options.

City council head of community

support and partnerships John

Filsell said once the information

was gathered, a discussion will be

had with the Waipapa Papanui

Innes Community Board on how

the feasibility study should proceed.

The date for this

discussion is yet to be

finalised, Filsell said.

He said operational

funding for the feasibility

study was included in the

Long Term Plan and capital

funding of approximately

$3,000,000 has been set

aside in the plan over the

years 2030/31.

Innes Ward councillor Pauline

Cotter said she can understand why

Dalziel has described the process as

an “injustice”.

“I can empathise with the

community for having a

community centre that was

then gone,” she said.

“I feel like this area is

kind of almost last to have

areas restored . . . Shirley, in

particular, needs the stability.”

Cotter said she fought

alongside Papanui Ward

councillor Mike Davidson to

get the money for a feasibility

study allocated to the city council’s

Long Term Plan.

She said the wheels are starting to

turn now, and hopes the feasibility

study will be presented to the

community board by the end of

the year.

Dalziel said the whole process

has been an “uphill battle against

authorities” but has hope that

the community facility will be

restored.

“They’ve [city council] agreed to

do something but what it’s going to

be, we don’t know.”

Let’s use water

like we oughta

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula households

that regularly use much more water than

average will pay extra for their water supply

from October.

Most households are using less than 700 litres of water a day and won’t be charged.

Thanks for using water like you oughta!

A fairer way to manage our city’s water supply

We don’t charge ratepayers for water itself. We charge for delivering it

– through our network of pipes, pumps and other infrastructure.

When the district’s water use doubles over summer, the cost of

delivering water goes up significantly too. That increase in demand

isn’t spread evenly, with most of the increase due to a small

proportion of households.

When demand on our water supply network is at its peak we’re at risk

of not being able to supply enough water to properties, which could

have serious impacts on public health, and our ability to fight fires.

If everyone uses water like we oughta, we won’t need to spend as

much money expanding our water supply network, and it will also

improve the sustainability of our city’s water supply, which helps us

achieve our climate change goals.

Seek the leak and reduce your use

You can use our Water Reporter online tool to find out how much

water your household uses before charges come into effect in

October 2022 – visit ccc.govt.nz/WaterReporter

If your household is using a lot of water there might be a leak on

your property. You have time to find the leak and get it fixed.

Our website tells you about how to read your water meter, check for

leaks and reduce your water use*.

*Some properties’ water use is not recorded on the Water Reporter.

This includes: properties with a shared water meter, properties

that haven’t had their water meter read and properties without

a water meter.

How the new rate will work

The new rate will apply to any household that uses, on average,

more than 700 litres a day. We’ll read your water meter roughly

every 90 days, and for every 1000 extra litres you use during that

period, you’ll pay $1.35.

We know there are some reasons households might have high water

use. If any of these circumstances apply, you might be eligible for

a remission:

Unexpected high use due to a leak – if you can show the leak

was repaired promptly.

Personal circumstances such as medical conditions.

Families with nine members or more who are using water

responsibly.

High water users can expect to receive their first bill between January

and March 2023.

What does this mean for tenants and landlords?

The property owner, or the person who receives the property’s rates

bill, will also receive the excess water supply bill. The landlord must

pay the bill and can then ask the tenant to reimburse them.

If high water use is due to a leak, it’s the owner’s responsibility to get

it fixed and apply for a remission.

Landlords should let their tenants know they have a responsibility to

be good water users and will need to pay for excess water use.

Know and reduce your water use

‘The way it tastes is the most important’

• From page 1

Sanders, 23, won gold at the

regional heats to qualify for the

grand finals, held at Ara Institute

of Canterbury, where she is

studying towards a diploma in

cookery level 5.

She received gold for her twocourse

menu of hoisin glaze pork,

black vinegar dumpling and

umami broth and a dessert of

chai spice cake with pear, coffee,

pecan and white chocolate.

“It was surreal, it didn’t actually

feel real because I wasn’t

expecting it to happen at all,”

Sanders said.

She had competed in the heats

last year, narrowly missing out on

bronze so wanted to really push

herself this year.

Sanders will be competing

against 12 other chefs, with

one other chef from the North

Island and the rest from all over

Australia.

The winner will be awarded an

AU$10,000 cash prize, something

Sanders said would be an amazing

opportunity to help expand

her cooking equipment.

“I’d be able to go out and immerse

myself in the food culture

in Christchurch and around New

Zealand a wee bit more which

would be fantastic as well.”

While Sanders has always had

an interest in cooking, she never

considered it to be her professional

career.

After leaving Lincoln High

School, Sanders worked full-time

HELPING HAND: As a child, Gabby Sanders loved to help

her mother out in the kitchen. Here she is at three-yearsold

with a cake.

at a supermarket, still figuring

out what she wanted to do.

Her co-worker Jeremy, who was

going through a career change

to be a chef, encouraged her to

study cookery, so she decided to

give it a go and enrolled at Ara.

Sanders said she is still in

contact with Jeremy and he was

stoked to hear about her securing

a spot in the grand finals competition.

Sanders said her mother is an

“amazing” cook and growing up,

she was encouraged to eat like an

adult and try new things.

“We’d always be pushed to try

new things. As a kid some of my

favourite foods were blue cheese

and pâté and olives which lots of

kids don’t really enjoy.

“I really like how food sort of

brings people together, it’s something

to enjoy with a group.”

Sanders lives with her partner

in St Albans and when asked

if they enjoy her cooking she

laughed.

“You’d think so but we eat a lot

of curries and baked beans and

stuff, just general easy dinners.”

Although, she did say she’s

been enjoying cooking heavy,

richer meals during the colder

weather, such as lamb shanks and

beef stew.

She said the most challenging

thing to cook is anything she’s

unfamiliar with as it can take a

while to get her head around it.

“I think the hardest thing to

make is probably something

you’re too scared to have a go at .

. . [but] the only thing worse than

messing something up is just not

trying in the first place.”

Sanders is “hesitantly confident”

for the grand finals and

while she’s excited to give it a go,

she’s also still processing it all.

During the regional heats,

chefs were judged on presentation,

taste and the use of ingredients

down to how clean they

are in the kitchen, general food

handling and how much food

they waste.

“You’re being watched the

whole time, it’s a bit scary,” Sanders

said.

For each competition, chefs are

given a set ingredient list which

they have to build their menu

around.

Sanders said she likes to sit

down and brainstorm what flavours

would work well together

then, with the help of her tutors,

figure out the best way to execute

each piece of the dish.

“You can always tweak it and

improve it and everyone’s taste is

different,” she said.

“It’s a group effort to get

something down that majority of

people would enjoy eating.”

Sanders works on what the

dish will look like last, once she’s

nailed the taste.

“The way it tastes is the most

important because it could look

amazing and just taste awful and

there’s not much point in that.”

As for kitchen fails, nothing

sprung to mind for Sanders,

although she admitted she has

dropped and burnt her fair share

of things.

“When you mess something

up it’s how you deal with it and

make it work in the end, it’s

always a really good learning

experience because when you

make a big mistake you’re always

going to remember it and not do

it again.”

Outside of study, Sanders

works part-time at The Monday

Room as a commis chef, a job

she scored from completing work

experience there as part of her

study.

As a commis chef, Sanders

assists the other chefs with food

preparation, particularly working

on entrées and desserts, although

she said she likes to give everything

a go.

When Sanders graduates she

said she’s open to moving around

a bit and maybe spending some

time overseas but for now she is

happy where she is, doing what

she loves.

Animals on this design all endangered

MADDISON BOTT and Olivia

Lynch from Breens Intermediate

have won first place in Toi, the

country’s largest annual wearable

arts competition for schools.

Their entry, named Tomorrow

Is Too Late, highlights the plight

of endangered animals. The

duo said: “We are here to show

awareness for our endangered

animals around the world . . .

“All the animals on this

outfit are endangered and if we

don’t act now they will become

extinct, just like the dinosaurs.

Every little bit counts. One

person can make a difference.

Change now because tomorrow

is too late.”

The top 10 national finalists

in both the open and junior

sections have all won a sewing

machine from Bernina and a

World of WearableArt prize pack

Winners Maddison Bott,

Olivia Lynch and Olivia Varley

have won tickets to attend the

2022 World of WearableArt

show in Wellington and a

voucher from The Fabric Store.

Toi is now Aotearoa’s largest

wearable arts opportunity for

school students, produced in

collaboration with WOW. It

originated as part of performing

arts competition Showquest, but

rapidly grew into a standalone

platform due to enthusiasm and

demand the event organisers

saw from art, fashion and design

focused students.

FIRST PLACE: Breens Intermediate students Maddison

Bott and Olivia Lynch with their winning design.

The goal is for students to get

a taste of WOW while at school,

and to nurture budding young

designers who may one day enter

the globally celebrated WOW

competition. This year was the

biggest yet, with 285 individual

entries of wearable art garments

throughout the country.

Toi national producer Kelsey

Moller said: “Each year the

creativity, construction and

out-of-the-box thinking steps

up a notch. We were blown away

by the ideas and stories students

brought to life in their garments

this year.”

Teams were judged by Dame

Suzie Moncrieff and Heather

Palmer from WOW on four

main areas -–concept, originality

and innovation, quality of

construction, and health and

safety (how safe the garment was

for the model to wear and move

around in).

Finish your roast meal with a

Venison roast

Serves 4

1 salt and freshly ground pepper

700g lamb roast

2 cloves garlic

Ingredients

Directions

Marinade:

½ cup red wine

1 cinnamon quill, crushed

2 star anise

6 whole cloves

1 tbsp honey

Small strip orange peel

1 tbsp olive oil

Roast:

400g venison

Freshly ground black pepper to

taste

2 tbsp olive oil

Sauce:

1 cup (250ml) meat glaze or

good beef stock

Directions

To make the marinade, combine

wine, spices, honey and orange

peel in a saucepan. Slowly bring

to the boil. Simmer for 1 minute,

then cool. When cold, add olive

oil.

Place venison in a plastic bag.

Pour marinade over. Move meat

around so it is well coated. Refrigerate

for at least one hour or up to

8 hours.

Return to room temperature

before cooking. Preheat oven to

200 deg C.

Remove meat from marinade

and pat dry. Reserve marinade for

the sauce. Season.

Heat olive oil in a pan. Sear

venison until lightly browned

on all sides. Place in a small

roasting pan in the oven. Roast

for 20-25 minutes for medium

rare.

Remove from oven and tent

with foil. Cover with a thick towel

and stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, strain marinade

and bring to the boil. Add

meat glaze or stock and simmer

for 1-2 minutes. Serve with the

venison.

Great accompanied by baby red

jacket potatoes, plus 4cm cubes

of pumpkin and large broccoli

florets, roasted with the venison.

Tomato-stuffed mini lamb

Serves 4

Ingredients

⅓ cup tomato pesto

⅓ cup ground almonds

2 tbsp fresh oregano

Heat oven to 200 deg C. To make

the stuffing, place sun dried pesto,

ground almonds and chopped

fresh oregano in a bowl. Season

with salt and pepper to taste and

mix to combine.

Trim any fat or sinew from

the lamb (use 2 x 350g roasts).

Season on both sides with salt

and pepper and lay out flat on a

board, skin-side down. Spread

stuffing over the lamb pieces and

roll them up to contain filling. Tie

pieces with string to secure them

into two parcels.

Heat an ovenproof pan, add

two tablespoons oil and sear lamb

parcels for five minutes, turning

to brown all over.

Add two gloves of garlic, cut

in half to the pan and place in the

chocolate dessert or cake

150gm unsalted butter, softened

75gm caster sugar

4 large free-range eggs,

separated

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

150gm ground almonds or

toasted hazelnuts

12 toasted hazelnuts, reserved

for decoration

50gm dark chocolate, grated, to

decorate

Chocolate mousse:

150gm dark chocolate, coarsely

chopped

30gm unsalted butter, cubed

4 large free-range eggs,

separated

Banana, coconut and

chocolate cake

Serves 4

Ingredients

200gm milk chocolate

1 large ripe banana, peeled and

mashed

2 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 tbsp canola oil

1 cup coconut milk

¾ cup cane sugar

2 and ½ cups plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

¾ cup desiccated coconut

Directions

Directions

For the cake, preheat oven to

170 deg C. Grease a 22cm spring

form cake tin and line the base

and sides with baking paper.

Place the chocolate and coffee

in a bowl set over a saucepan

one-quarter full of simmering

water to melt. Or microwave in

short bursts. Stir until smooth

then set aside. Place butter and

sugar in a bowl and beat with

an electric mixer until pale and

creamy.

Add vanilla and egg yolks, one

at a time, beating well after each

addition. Beat in the chocolate

mixture and then stir in the

ground hazelnuts.

In a clean bowl, whisk egg

whites until stiff peaks form. Use

a large metal spoon to fold the

egg whites into the chocolate

mixture in two additions. Pour

mixture into prepared tin and

smooth the surface. Bake for

40 minutes or until an inserted

skewer comes out clean. Remove,

cool in the tin.

For the mousse, place chocolate

and butter in a bowl set over

a saucepan one-quarter full of

simmering water to melt. Or

microwave in short bursts.

Stir until smooth. Add egg

yolks, one at a time, stirring to

combine. In a clean bowl, whisk

egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Fold egg whites into the chocolate

mixture in two additions. The

mixture may appear to split but

keep folding and it will come

together.

To assemble, pour the mousse

onto the cooled cake while it is

still in the tin. Refrigerate for

at least 4 hours, or preferably

overnight.

To serve, release the spring.

Use a small knife to help ease the

paper away from the cake. Peel

off the paper and discard. Use

a hot knife to cut the torte into

wedges.

Decorate with reserved

hazelnuts and grated chocolate.

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Lightly grease and flour a 20-

21cm square cake pan. Line the

base with baking paper. Break

chocolate into squares. Cut each

square in half.

Combine mashed banana,

vanilla essence, eggs, oil and coconut

milk. Stir in the sugar. Sift

the flour and baking powder over

the banana mixture. Fold in the

coconut using a spatula. Fold in

the chocolate — do not over-mix.

Spoon into the cake pan.

Bake for 50 minutes, or until

a skewer inserted in the centre

comes out clean. Cool in the pan

for 10 minutes then turn out on

to a wire rack.

Netball that isn’t

hard on the body

• By Jaime Cunningham

ON A freezing Tuesday

night in Christchurch,

16 walking netball

fanatics, including two

who had never played

the game before, turn up

to ‘Wiggle and Giggle’

at Christchurch’s only

walking netball group.

Christchurch Netball

Centre has run walking

netball for almost five

years every Wednesday

morning at Hagley Park.

Unlike standard netball,

walking netball players

must keep at least part of

their foot always in contact

with the ground, so no

jumping or running is allowed.

The slower version of

netball spiked in popularity

across the world around

2017, with many clubs in

countries like Australia,

England and New Zealand

establishing walking netball

groups.

After hosting two successful

night sessions this

winter, the Christchurch

group is looking to grow.

CNC activator Julia van

Dyk says, in the past, the

group has included people

with disabilities, those

coming back from sporting

injuries and people who

just want to stay active.

By hosting the two night

sessions at the Bishopdale

YMCA, those who would

normally work on a

Wednesday morning have

been able to join in, too.

Long-time walking

netball volunteer Trudi

MacKenzie has been participating

since CNC first

established the group

almost five years ago and

has led its organisation for

the last three years.

“Sometimes I feel like I

laugh more in that hour

(of netball) than for the

rest of the week. It’s just

really good physically and

mentally.”

MacKenzie says the

number of participating

had dropped during the

Covid pandemic. Before

the virus hit New Zealand

in 2020, the CNC had

three full walking netball

teams.

“We now struggle to

get two full teams, and

normally have about 10 to

12 playing.”

Allan Williams is one of

two original walking netball

members still playing

this year.

Despite sporting a few

bandages and a slight

weakness in one arm, he

is a handy defender in the

shooting circle.

Until five years ago, he

had “never played netball

in [his] life”.

Williams says he enjoys

walking netball because

it has kept him fit and

helped him lose more than

seven kilograms in six

months.

He’s been pushing for

more days of walking

netball events though

recognises Covid has put

off some.

Van Dyk hopes that

when the $20 million

netball and futsal centre at

Nga Puna Wai is finished

more people will join

walking netball at the new

indoor facility.

CNC’s walking netball

is held at at Hagley Netball

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight

for farm and rural residents around the

Canterbury region, however now days urban

residents also enjoy the same excellent

customer service for which RDP is known for

in rural communities, through their home

heating diesel.

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery

service to the lower South Island’s main urban

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin

and Invercargill a number of years ago.

Customer demand has continued to increase

year upon year, and RDP has responded

with specialised improvements to its delivery

equipment.

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ground moisture barrier needs.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer

the heated air with as little heat loss as

possible. The fan moves sufficient air

for the distance and number of rooms,

without being noisy. The diffusers send the

heat to the floor, not to skim the across the

ceilings. All components are good quality

- designed to operate for years without

problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range

of options: One to four rooms, with or

without thermostat and with a choice

of grilles and diffusers. HTUs improve

energy efficiency in your house, as you

are using excess heat. They have low

power consumption - only 80watts for

the three room system. Circulating

air through the house also reduces the

risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU

version with downjet diffusers, which

throw the warm air downwards to

the floor. These downjet diffusers can

also be adjusted to regulate which

room receives the most warm air.

An average size living room requires

2-4 kw of heating, yet appliances such

as log burners generate heat in the

region of 10 -20kw. This leaves an

excess of 8 -16kw of heat which sits at

high level in the heated room, usually

above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

how they can help you with your Heat

Transfer, as well as any other ventilation

requirements.
