By GEORGE GARDNER It's not often that several top chefs from the island's best eateries are found at one venue. But too many chefs did not spoil the broth at Casita Miro Kitchen when they gathered with farmers, food growers and suppliers to sample a taste of how this island venue is doing it for itself'' in the realm of self-sufficiency. Vineyard restaurant chef Justin Scheihing has crafted a range of charcuterie products such as air-dried ham that has been hanging foroverayear--inthe tradition of prosciutto and jamon cerrano. He is also producing house- cured bacon, chorizo, home-made sausages, terrines and rilletes at Casita Miro Kitchen. Waiheke is fast becom- ing known as a foodie'' as well as a wine desti- nation, with chefs like Justin Scheihing bring- ing what's in the garden onto the plate rather than sourcing ingred- ients from afar. He says the locally grown products that can be sourced on Waiheke by restaurants are just getting better and better. The island has every- thing from seafood and vegetables to edible flowers and free-range quail and duck eggs. Some days we are really proud to see that most of our menu is sourced from Waiheke -- this certainly could not have been the case when I came to the island a few years ago. Some growers supply almost exclusively to one or two restaurants. Hopefully it will get bigger and bet- ter,'' he says. Go to www.mirovineyard. co.nz/casitamiro for more information about Casita Miro Kitchen or phone 372-7854. New menu jazzes up winter music series Mambo jazz: Last seen at the Waiheke International Jazz Festival, Chocolate Fish will be back at Salt Restaurant at the Dunes in Onetangi on Saturday night.

Michael Weiss is studying towards a post- graduate diploma in musicology after working as a school teacher on Auckland's North Shore for two years. Robert Drage began his musical studies on the piano when he was four years old, moving to cello when he was seven. He is currently a mem- ber of the Auckland Youth Orchestra.
