For some weeks the people of the Hurunui, and especially parishioners, have been delighting in the inspiration provided by our Hurunui friends Richard and Leo in the national 2015 Masterchef contest. Every Sunday and Monday evening we watch these artists at work preparing food that delights the chef judges, and which reminds us of the beauty of a talent generously shared.
A few minutes ago we rejoiced again as Leo and Richard made it through to the final five. While such reality shows are known for being cut-throat competitive, this series of NZ Masterchef is different. There is a generosity of spirit and and genuine friendship between these final competitors. The show is a delight to watch.
On behalf of us all thank you Richard and Leo and your friends for providing such inspiring viewing.
