WITH our Fire Dragon Chillies, Taheke Terror and Kaitaia Fire chilli sauces, it's little wonder the New Zea- land chilli eating champion is a Northland lad. Daniel the Chilli Machine'' Naera from Opononi took the title in the NZ Chilli Eating Championship in Auckland last month. Entrants came from all over New Zealand with a few international contestants thrown into the mix, includ- ing a German who hitched down from Kerikeri. None, however, were a match for Mr Naera who beat 26 contestants in the two hour contest of pain, sweat and tears. Opononi Hotel now boasts an impressive list of honours with a New Zealand chilli eating champion, Dan Naera; a New Zealand scrabble champion, office manager Debbie Raphael; and a New Zealand seafood pizza champion, chef Cam Marshall. Also worthy of mention is Opononi Hotel's finalist position in the New Zealand Best Music Venue Awards 2011. Crowds turn out for show Haunting: A performer of the Yawar Mayu Inca music group.
