 Guests can enjoy delectable homebaked goodies during their experience and stay with us

And it's all thanks to our baker extraordinaire, Michelle Te Ahuru, aka Midge.

Born and bred in Taumarunui, Midge is responsible for all homebaked products served at the motel and on our experiences.

Inspired by her Nana Jo, and no doubt being a Mum to four strapping young boys, Midge is passionate about food and cooking and has spent years perfecting her now trademark goodies which we're delighted to serve with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea on all of our tours...

*Mumble Slices*

*Anzac Biscuits*

*Fruit Loaf*

*Lemon Loaf*

*Blueberry Muffins*

Midge's Mumble Slices and Anzac Biscuits (along with a gluten and dairy free alternative) are available for purchase by the bag at 'The Shed' at Tokirima, along with our complete range of gifts and souvenirs. Guests can also buy the homebaked goods and browse a selection of gifts at our motel reception/Forgotten World Adventures base.

Midge works closely with Forgotten World Motel Manager Robyn Kakahi in our kitchen, cooking up homemade breakfasts for guests before they embark on their adventures. Together, they also provide 'Hearty Dinners' for our large tour groups; guests can indulge in quality two course meals produced from locally sourced ingredients, such as 'Roast Minted Lamb with Roasted Vegetables and Broccoli Cheese' followed by Midge's famous Cream Puffs (Chocolate Eclairs) or Fresh Fruit Salad.

Midge also makes our healthy breakfast muesli from local ingredients.
