HOT DIGGITY DOG
Tītī hotdog with horopito pickled onions and mānuka-smoked chilli relish, anyone? This fine-looking dish represents the equally fine city of Dunedin in Savoir
Faire, an online cookbook celebrating the world’s UNESCO Cities of Literature, of which Dunedin is one. The book is the brainchild of Dunedin mayor Dave Cull and the dish was conjured up by Otago Polytechnic food design lecturers Richard Mitchell and Adrian Woodhouse, who took inspiration from the lyrics of Graeme Downes of The Verlaines and the beer of Richard Emerson, specifically the Bird Dog IPA that is a tribute to The Verlaines’ 1987 album of the same name. Google 'Savoir Faire' and 'Dunedin' and you’ll find the book in full.
