A Pinch of Salt: Celebrating New Zealand Food (Celebrity Chef)
New Zealand's cuisine has been described as Pacific Rim, drawing inspiration
from Europe, Asia and Polynesia. This blend of influences has created a
mouth-watering range of flavours and food in cafes and restaurants nationwide.
For dishes that have a distinctly New Zealand style, there's lamb, pork and
cervena (venison), salmon, crayfish (lobster), Bluff oysters, whitebait, paua
(abalone), mussels, scallops, pipis and tuatua (both are types of New Zealand
shellfish), kumara (sweet potato), kiwifruit, tamarillo and pavlova, the
Summer sees many eating outdoors in cafes or at barbecues - barbecues are a big part of the Kiwi culture, and typify the laid-back nature of the New Zealand people - where fare such as lamb, cervena (venison), crayfish (lobster), fresh fish and shellfish is plentiful.
New Zealanders are spoilt for their choice of fresh produce, choose a world class sauvignon blanc or chardonnay from one of the country's 376 wineries, and you have the perfect complement.

Even though it's easy, breezy Cover Girl getting through the airport, you have to actually check in by a certain time prior to departure. Duh. Unfortunately, our five minutes late cost us a pretty penny seeing as we had to buy completely brand new tickets. Ouch.
So instead of spending the morning in Queenstown we spent the morning in the Koru Club, Air New Zealand's lounge for travelers who prefer to recover from their missed flights surrounded by free croissants and businessmen. After not talking to each other for about four hours we got on the next flight and our fabulous vacation began.
Queenstown pretty much immediately jumped to the top of my favorite New Zealand places list. It is the most beautiful little mountain town. We strolled around, had lunch at Fergburger, and took the gondola to the top to see the fantastic views:...Read
