a few of our favourite things...

Becs: Daisy and I were treated by Anna to a lovely weekend up in Auckland. It was a whistle stop tour of all things food and eating-out related, visiting both old favourites and new arrivals around town. One such newbie is 'Little and Friday' a kitchen with a tiny shopfront (in a very non descript part of Belmont on the North Shore) that sells the most delicious array of rustic looking pastries, cakes and other treats. We enjoyed a cheese straw, savoury brioche with feta, tomato and basil, a mushroom, caramelised onion and cheese tart, and a pear, honey and almond tart. Their intention was to open on Fridays only, hence the name, but their food is so popular they now open 5 days a week.

Miriam: Crisps, or chips as us kiwis tend to call them fall into the 'occasional' food consumption category. So if you're going to eat them, you might as well eat good ones like these Proper Crisps. Handmade with nothing but potatoes, sunflower oil and sea salt, they are deliciously crispy, fresh and oh so scrumptious. At around $5 a bag, they're a bit more expensive than other crisps but they're well worth it - I also appreciate that unlike more commercial products, the packet is full to the brim with crisps!
