    Default Back from NZ and OZ and OB food

    We are back from nearly a month's stay in the lands down
    under.
    I can thoroughly recommend:

    Our remarkable guide
    Baramundi (fish)
    NZ lamb
    Pavlova
    Feijoa (fruit)
    Passionfruit
    Kumara (yummy sweet potato)
    jet boating
    all of NZ scenery and its wonderful, hospitable people
    Bay of Islands, NZ
    Bondi Beach (Au)
    Manly Beach (Au)
    Great Barrier Reef snorkeling
    Monteith beer
    NZ sauvignon blanc wine

    and much more that I can't remember through the jet-lagged haze.
    Altho we don't always agree on much, we agree was the best
    trip we have ever had.

    For a minute there I thought that you'd eaten the guide! Any recipes
    for guide?

    Glad to hear that it was a good trip and welcome back.

    Welcome back, Gloria. Sorry I didn't get back to you before you left,
    but we ended up spending more time on our road trip around the
    mid-to-lower North Island than we'd envisaged and didn't get back
    until after you'd left.

    We drove down from Northland via Orewa, Cambridge, then Taupo, Levin,
    and a neat little place (Sandcastle Motel) on Kapati Coast

    (http://www.holidayguide.co.nz/Kapiti...tle_Motel.aspx)

    before spending four days in Wellington. We'd originally planned a
    three day stay, but wanted a better look around - especially the
    Impressionists' Exhibition at Te Papa. We wish Wellington was closer
    to us because we like it far more than Auckland.

    We took an even slower journey back north. Spent several days staying
    in Oakura in north Taranaki near New Plymouth. It was spectacular and,
    except for some rain the morning we left Wellington, the weather was
    perfect and we had clear views of all of the magnificent volcanic
    mountains.

    Except for the Museum Hotel in Wellington, our only extravagances were
    food and wine and we lucked out all the way along the line. We don't
    expect hotel restaurants to be anything special, so the Hippopotamus
    restaurant was a huge surprise. The food/service/views were exquisite.

    http://www.museumhotel.co.nz/

    But even the roadside cafes and local restaurants we encountered were
    exceptionally good. The only place where we had a problem was a
    rundown little West Coast village called Opunake. The Chinese takeaway
    that was recommended by the motel was so grubby looking that we ended
    up eating beans on toast in our room rather than chance it. But
    getting stuck in Opunake is another story and at least we had a nice
    un-oaked NZ Chardonnay to wash it down.

    So ... what did you think of our cheeses? You didn't mention any in
    your list!!!

    Ezzactly. He sure was yummy looking, and a real sweetheart,
    too.
    If I were 10 years younger and he were 10 years older and I
    wasn't
    married...oh, hell, never mind.

    No name for it, it's prescribed for me by my health practitioner. No
    alcohol, no sugar, no grains, no fruit, no dairy, nothing fermented. After
    1 month, I start adding things back - fruit comes first (YAY!!).

    I'm going to cheat this w/e, but very very mildly.

    If you want more info, email me privately and I'll respond. You have my
    email addy, I believe....
