Norka Mella Munoz was so excited when she heard she had been named as one of four 2020 Ambassador Chefs for Beef + Lamb New Zealand that she screamed.
The head chef at Mangapapa Hotel in Havelock North says the news “was just awesome for the entire team here at Mangapapa”.
“It’s been a rollercoaster ever since the announcement. We have been so busy with functions and in the restaurant.”
Norka, who grew up in Chile and has been living in New Zealand for more than 15 years, says she is excited for the year ahead and to be able to work with such a diverse and talented group of chefs.
