This afternoon I battled (well, I didn’t battle, I behaved quite politely really) the hordes of people who decided to spend a wet, rainy Sunday at The Auckland Food show.
After looking around all the exhibitors I went and watched Sophie Gray do a cooking demonstration in the theatre they have set up at the show. She made Tagliatelle with chicken and lemon dressing, Lamb biriyani one pan and a Fragrant lemongrass chicken curry – the recipes can all be found on the food show website.
There were lots of my fave foods on display – delicious yoghurt, heaps of pesto’s and olive oils, different meats, soups, wines. Stand outs for me at the show would be (since I am a chocolate truffle lover) The Seriously Good Chocolate Company – yummy yummy truffles. I will be keeping an eye out for them in stores (and according to their website, the duty free store at the airport is a stockist – just another reason to get excited about my upcoming trip to Melbourne in September!). You can find a stockist near you or buy their products on their website. Also, I have to mention Cathedral Cove Macadamias – my friend Jarrah and I love their flavoured Dukkah’s (we usually pick some up if we go to the French Market in Parnell). You can purchase their products, get recipe ideas, and find more information on their website.
Can’t wait ‘till next years show.
