When we head to Auckland we try like hell to sample the cuisine at some place we haven't been to before. This includes takeaways etc.
So its great to see a new foodie blog written by Jessie Mulligan that takes considered look at Auckland food in all its glory.

Jessie , along with Jo Cotton, is a brekkie jock on More FM in Auckland. He and his girlfriend stayed with us briefly over Xmas.

Anyway he is a man of many parts who had travelled a bit as well. So we look forward to new posts on his blog.

Be rest assured this very talented cool dude knows his tucker.

While we were in Auckland last , we managed to get to the Oratia Market. It was in a great location and had lots of interesting stalls . We like the idea that there was a fantastic Antique place call Just Plane interesting there, as well as a superb selection of sit down eating cafes and stand up sample and sip stalls. We came home with some lovely honey from the EarthBound Honey company. We bought the bush honey and its delicately complex - we matched it with this - the OMG triple cream brie. It was very rich combination but it melted on your tongue..

So with the "50 before we are 50" challenge starting tomorrow - the triple cream bries drizzled with honey will be foody memories that we will return too often after a day of low fat, lilliputian portions.
