Sometimes I’m not quite sure where a salad will take me …
Yep, it’s time to get your chops around some New Zealand lamb racks, riblets or cutlets, or whatever your fave cut of lamb is, so you can join in National Lamb Day. Seriously, there is such a thing. It takes place on Monday.
I’m such a wimp!
Drop some good food before Fat Freddy’s concerts at Cable Bay Vineyards Waiheke Island today/tomorrow – great choices at Verandah (Cable Bay) and Thomas’s Bach (free bus from Matiatia).
When the chips are down, there’s nothing like a fried cheese sandwich to perk you up!
Island charmer – superb food and wine to be had at Te Whau Winery & Restaurant Waiheke Island
Shared Kitchen gets a Gourmand gong!
Make the table the heart of your home this festive season.
My back may be aching, but the garden is flourishing!
Lucky there’s compost and pea straw!
Gin & tonics scheduled for 2018
Bacon & eggs for dinner? Why not …get a glass of sav on the go, find a sunny spot and away you go.
Oh, I love a bit of mollycoddling … especially when the weather is crappy. A pot of chicken broth, chugging away, fills the house with hope!
Come and join us on Waiheke for fabulous food and wine experiences – olive oil tastings, cooking classes, sumptuous long lunches, cellar wines. And talk to us about special occasion dining or festive events.
I won’t starve on Waiheke. I’ll be able to have a tomato sandwich in about three weeks.

Here’s a sample of tempting recipes from The Great Australian Cookbook.
Food and wine or wine and food? It’s hard to choose the more impressive of the two served up at a wine tasting and degustation lunch at Villa Maria Winery on Monday. I went primed for action: hungry, thirsty, inquisitive, and with a cab booked to wing me back to the ferry …
Villa Maria is unashamedly family oriented. When you dine with them, with their founder Sir George Fistonich and wife Lady Gail, with their winemakers and staff, you become part of the family, part of their story. That story started a long time ago, in 1961, when a young lad called George leased a few acres […]
Make that a triple serving … I’d be happy to! 1st October is World Vegetarian Day, not something that is ever going to slip under my radar because, in case you hadn’t noticed, we’re rather fond of vegetables at Shared Kitchen. In fact, we’re crazy about them. Beats me though, why potatoes continue to get […]
What about those annoying little points that you side-step, or blatantly ignore? Will a recipe still hang together?
It’s either that, or open the windows!
If you haven’t had a tour around Shared Kitchen for awhile, here are some of the fabulous vegetable recipes on board (click on the links at the bottom of each gallery of photos): Persimmon & Feta Salad Ilaria’s Spicy Bunnuce Burgers Erbazzone Mushrooms on Toast Eggplant & Date Salad Broccoli Salad with Pumpkin & Peppers […]
You could say Italy is coming to Auckland, with street feasts and Chamber music concerts, and Italian restaurants and businesses promoting all that is good about la bella Italia! This Sunday 27th September, Osborne and Kent Streets in Newmarket will be open to pedestrians only as the area is turned into an Italian market place […]
My son Luca reckons this is the best chicken dish he has eaten – ever!
