Sherwood Lunch for Autumn

My dear dear Sherwood has just unleashed their new Autumn lunch menu on Queenstown and I toddled off to try it. With three babies in tow I had images of food spread up the walls but the staff were amazing and the babies, well the babies loved the food too! One of the delights about the Sherwood is their ‘veggie patch goals’ just outside the window. Abundant with plants and veggies all ready to leap on your plate and into your tum. Whatever can’t be scavenged from the patch is as local as it can be. Local produce and food...

Relax It’s Done- Mountain Vista

Set against the backdrop of Ben Lomond and the trails high above, Relax It’s Done have hit the jackpot with the beautiful ‘Mountain Vista‘ property. Hot tub anyone? I spent a lovely evening away from home in this property high up in the Fernhill district of Queenstown. An absolutely stunning house with a view that will knock your socks off. Are there any bad views in this place? I think not. You’ll be dreaming about this view for a long long time. Mountain Vista is a beautiful three bedroom home with a seperate little one bedroom/kitchen annex below which, if...

Harbour Fish Queenstown

So the nursery rhyme “Butcher, Baker, Candle….” was so wrong. Where was the fish shop? I have such fond and fantastical memories of heading down to the market and standing at the fish counter in amazement.

I’d love to invite you into Harbour Fish world. Harbour Fish is a family owned and operated fishing business based in Dunedin. The freshest of fish is wild caught between Timaru...

Amisfield for Dinner

Call me stupid but I have lived down the road from Amisfield for a few years now and it’s never crossed my mind that it’s a fabulous dinner- dining location. Situated on the way to Arrowtown or to Queenstown from Central Otago it’s one of the most stunning locations for eating your way through the freshest of fresh produce and quaffing down a glass or two of their award winning wines. I’ve visited Amisfield many many times for lunch but on this occasion I was invited to try out their ‘Trust the Chef’ dinner menu and it did not...
