Review: Mary's - St Mary's Bay

14 April 2015
Brainchild of the team behind three successful Auckland eateries – Remuera’sShore Road Café , Newton’sBenediction and Grey Lynn’sJafa – St Marys Bay’sMary’s combines much beloved dishes from other establishments with brand-new dishes on the breakfast and all day brunch menu.

Inhabiting an old brick fire station, the high stud and natural light make for a great place for a quick coffee or a daytime meal. The outdoor courtyard backs onto a reserve so there are no excuses not to burn off at least some of calories gained (but hey, it’s worth it).
Review: Mary's - St Mary's Bay
The crowd-pleasing Vegan Black Sticky Rice, served with coconut cream, seasonal fruit and topped with toasted coconut, is particularly delicious, while new brunch menu items are on offer, like the Red Flannel Hash with gourmet red potatoes sautéed with red onions, tomato and chorizo and topped with fried or poached eggs.

Run by a seasoned team,Mary’s is set to take off and garner city-wide attention, and will surely add to the list of respected gourmet eateries around the central city.

Serves breakfast and all day brunch. Open 7 days, from 7am till 4pm Monday to Friday and 8am till 4pm Saturday and Sunday.

Product Review: The Aromatherapy Company

06 April 2015
We love New Zealand made products and here's a goodie for you.

With its feet still firmly on the ground,The Aromatherapy Company began from humble beginnings. Sarah Townsend, founder and director of the company, was inspired as a youngster by the beauty and brilliance of nature in her grandparents’ garden. This passion stayed with her into adulthood, where upon returning to New Zealand, Townsend saw a gap in the natural remedies market, and thusThe Aromatherapy Company was born.
Now 25 years old, the company has enjoyed strong success not only here, but across the ditch too. In offering its 100% pure oil-based everyday products,Aromatherapy has captured a growing local market looking for sustainable and healthy fragrance and body care products.

Offering a vast range of lotions, soaps, candles, diffusion sets and even men’s and baby care,Aromatherapy products are across the entire range of body care. With a timeless and elegant packaging, the products look the part, too.

We particularly love the Cocoa and Vanilla Naturals range!

Bluff Oyster season has begun

26 March 2015
The Bluff Oyster season officially began in March and runs until July/August. Grown slowly in the cold clean waters of the Foveaux Strait Bluff Oysters are exalted by many as the world's finest oysters and are a true taste of New Zealand's incredible seafood.
Bluff oysters
Although commonly known as the Bluff Oyster, it is known by others names, including mud oyster, flat oyster, dredge oyster, Foveaux Strait oyster and deep water oyster. The species is actually found throughout New Zealand, but is most common in the south. A quota system was introduced in 1963, the twelve oyster boats then engaged in the industry being set a limit of 170,000 sacks per season (each sack containing, on average, 800 oysters). The quota was progressively reduced until in 1970 with 23 boats operating, it was 115,000 or 5000 per boat (in eating terms that equates to two dozen oysters for every man, woman and child in the country). Seasons were relatively good until the 1986/87 season when the beds were struck by the parasitic protozoan Bonamia. This caused the oysters to become watery and black. Because of the Bonamia the season was ceased in 1991 and did not reopen until 1994 with a limited quota and fewer boats. Fortunately the oyster populations have been recovering, and quotas are gradually being increased.

When oystering first began it was a race to get the first oysters back to the wharf. Today some boats are met by helicopters who whisk the oysters away to be distributed throughout the country.

If you are a real fan make sure you head down to theBluff Oyster and Food Festival on the 25th of May.

APSNZ plays host during the Volvo Stopover and Cricket World Cup
