Place pork bones and hock in a large stockpot. Pour in just enough water to cover bones and hock, season with salt and then gently simmer for 1½ hours. Add potatoes, kumara, pumpkin and kamokamo to the pot.
Meanwhile, combine flour and baking powder and season with salt. Gradually add water to form a dough. Break off small bits of dough and form balls.
Place watercress and doughboys on top of boil-up and cook until watercress is tender.
Serve hot with Māori Bread.
Beer, something brown and with a little touch of sweetness – Speights Old Dark 5 malt ale.
Yellow Clay Road 2008 Cabernet-Merlot blend (Waiheke) – cassis and black currants. A hint of tea tannin or saltiness. Well framed with cedar notes. $30
Villa Maria “Reserve” 2009 Malbec (Hawkes Bay) – dark chocolate fruits. Chewy. Dense. Blueberry concentrate but not as fruity. Solid in the mouth. Great power. A nice tart twist on the finish. Significant wine! $45
