CHEF, COOK­BOOK AU­THOR AND MY KITCHEN RULES NZ JUDGE PETE EVANS TALKS ABOUT HIS PER­FECT WEEK­END, TIPS FOR HOME COOKS, AND WHY GISBORNE CAP­TURED HIS HEART

What’s the most com­mon mis­take you

en­counter on My Kitchen Rules?

Peo­ple cook­ing food for Manu [Feildel] and me, in­stead of cook­ing food they love.

If you could in­vite three fa­mous guests to din­ner, who would you chose?

My wife and two kids are the most fa­mous peo­ple in my world, and the ones I love to share any meal with.

What book is cur­rently on your bed­side ta­ble?

Be­ing Hu­man by Martin W Ball.

What’s your favourite part of New Zealand?

I fell in love with Gisborne as the ocean and land has some pretty spe­cial mojo to it. I would like to end up liv­ing there in the fu­ture.

What’s one food you couldn’t do with­out?

Lemons are one of the few fruits I eat on al­most a daily ba­sis, as their pow­er­house nu­tri­tional prop­er­ties mean these waxy cit­rus beau­ties stand out head and shoul­ders above the oth­ers. Just a quar­ter of a cup of le­mon juice con­tains 32 per cent of your rec­om­mended daily in­take of vi­ta­min C, as well as other key nutri­ents, such as fo­late.

WHAT’S YOUR TOP PIECE OF AD­VICE FOR HOME COOKS?

Cook nu­tri­tion­ally dense foods that have a lot of flavour – al­ways veg­eta­bles with a side of well-sourced meat, seafood or eggs.

HOW DO YOU COPE WITH STRESS IN THE KITCHEN?

There’s no stress in my kitchen – just good vibes and good tunes.

What ad­vice would you give your 16-year-old self?

Keep be­ing your­self and hold on tight for a su­per-fun ad­ven­ture!
