This dish is dedicated to the women from Napier. I was invited by a mate to ride my very first mountain bike race in Napier many years ago – the Napier Snoek en Patat Fees. I almost fucking died. I swear. For those of you who cycle or play sports, you will understand when I say I completely overcooked it and bonked with 20km to go. That is a long way when you have nothing left. That snoek, patat and apricot jam on fresh farm bread was to this day one of my best meals.
