October already ! Another year has raced by, I will resist the urge to say how many days until Christmas.

Warmer, longer days mean asparagus, an ingredient we anticipate and embrace.

Chargrilled, steamed, on pizza, in salads it is everywhere.


After a wet winter the soil is gradually returning to life, bitter spring greens revving up our digestion and revitalising our taste buds as we enjoy the longer days.

Wellington is abuzz with WOW, the World of Wearable Arts brings such a positive energy to the streets.


As always all wines by the glass, carafe and bottle.
