180g skinless pork belly or other fat pork cut, cut into bite size pieces
    3 sprinkles ground black pepper, salt
    Splash Olive oil
    3/4 cup aged Kimchi,
    1/4 small brown onion, thinly sliced
    1/2 stalk small spring onion, thinly sliced
    4-6 mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1 cup water
    1 tbsp Korean chilli flakes (gochugaru)
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tsp Korean chilli paste (gochujang) this is the paste in the red container found in most Asian stores
    1/4 tsp minced garlic

    Put pork in a bowl, add salt, pepper and oil to season.

    In a large pot brown off meat, small amounts at a time, then take out of pot.

    Once meat is brown add onions and mushrooms to pot and cook down, add more oil if needed.

    Add chilli flakes, soy sauce, chilli paste and garlic.

    Find 5 – 6 big pieces of Kimchi and wrap individual pieces around some of the pork. Chop the remainder of the kimchi and add to pot with the rest of the cooked pork. Cover with water and simmer for 1 hour until soft.

    Garnish with spring onion and serve with rice.




      This chocolate cake is super easy and gluten free. To make it more fancy you can create layers and add a butter cream and top with a ganache.

    • Middle Eastern Roll Mops

      Rolls Mops is a classic Dutch cold pickled Herring dish which we also had in NZ. The pomegranate Molasses is berry and citrus driven and pairs well with the Hemera Estate Old Vine Grenache. This is one of our signature wines and is one of the best food matching wines you can find.

    • Kokoda & Ceviche Salmon

      This ceviche is made with salmon which has a Mexican influence. The Grenache Rosé here at Hemera begs to be drunk with seafood. The great acidity in this wine, with delicate and subtle flavours, is the perfect balance to match with this great dish.
