Up Up N away again, this time for annal, oscars for the food industry, The NZ Food Awards, held at the spectacular Auckland War Museum at the top of Auckland Domain – love it.

We had a lovely 3 course meal, paired with Villa Maria Wines (sorry no pics, I was too hungry and only remembered afterwards):
Escabeche of Snapper, Whipped Avocado, Tapenade Toast, Spiced Aubergine Aggnoletti, Labneh, Roast Sirloin, Smoked Apple, Truffle Spinach, Game Chip
Filet of Beef, Caramelised Pear, Parsnip, Endive, Date Coffee
Poached Red Wine Pear Cinnamon Walnut Meringues, Tarragon, Blue Cheese Custard
Me and Ning from Countdown – he is such a fashionista
If you can’t tell what we’re doing, we’re constructing a Caribbean Kiss Trifle.
Go on my son!
A beautiful night for the food trade – winners for dinners!
