New Takanini seat in Parliament won by Labour's Dr Neru Leavasa

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Manukau Courier

Hi neighbours, if you live in Flatbush, The Gardens, Alfriston, Conifer Grove or Wattle Downs, you're in NZ's newest electorate of Takanini. Labour's Dr Neru Leavasa will be your new MP. He is a local GP and bone cancer survivor who hopes moving into politics will allow him to continue to help improve health outcomes for south Aucklanders in a “broader” sense.

Remote Cooking for Level 3 cookery

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

With some rapid planning, we have managed to transform our programme to online cooking demonstrations with the students preparing their own dishes at their homes. The flow of our timetable has pivoted to the patisserie module as the ingredients are easier for the students to purchase at the supermarket (we are reimbursing them for this cost).

A MacBook camera does a reasonable job recording and live-streaming and the laptop does not seem to mind the heat of the oven when Chef Finn opens to door to check if the Rhubarb tart is ready.
Today is Crème caramel, Rhubarb custard tart with Raspberry Coulis.
