NELSON. Never short of bars to repair to after a hard day at the beach, Nelson saw a whole new rash of openings late last year, just in time for the long, lovely summer season.
After three glorious days exploring my old stomping ground I realised the ante has been upped for those in search of a gourmet Perth city experience.
AUCKLAND. Long the preserve of those in need of lazy, summer-destination dining, The Tasting Shed has been a favourite of large groups for family celebrations, hen’s nights, the odd corporate function and weddings.
AUCKLAND. If bling is your thing, the foyer of SO/ Auckland, a recently opened hotel in central Auckland, will provide plenty of eye candy to whet the appetite.
The Japanese Larder, Tart & Bitter: Four Decades of Dining Nightmares, The Catalan Kitchen, Meat: The Ultimate Companion, La Boca Loca Mexican Cooking for New Zealanders, Lands of the Curry Leaf, My Indian Kitchen, Baladi: Palestine- a celebration of food from land to sea
As soft as it is strong, The Harnett is one serious player in the world of stinky cheese.
You probably already know that Nelson is the original home of the internationally acclaimed phenomenon known as WOW (World of WearableArt).
AUCKLAND. Not trying to bark up my own tree but burgers are a topic that I could confidently debate about. I have had my fair share of the delicacy in my short 21 years of living in Auckland and built a strong body of knowledge that I take great pride in.
DUNEDIN. Moiety is a fresh and exciting addition to Dunedin’s vibrant warehouse precinct, housed in the smartly refurbished 1880s Railway Central Terminus Hotel building.
CHRISTCHURCH. The Birdwood is a beacon in the night while all around is sepia, sleepy and quiet. Enter this food nest through the double doors, however, and the surprise is the captivating buzz, warmth, and heady yeast aromas from the pizza oven.
