Stuck at home in lockdown and dreaming of the day when you can enjoy a meal out again?

Well Aucklanders are being asked to share their food stories and nominate the region’s best dishes.

The Iconic Eats Auckland list launched last year with nominations ranging from dishes found at fine dining establishments to cafes, food trucks, markets and hole-in-the-wall offerings.

Winners ranged from traditional dishes to those representing the ethnic diversity of the region.

Auckland Unlimited spokesperson Annie Dundas said Iconic Eats is the “ultimate culinary bucket list” of dishes that can only be enjoyed in Auckland.

“What makes this list unique is the amazing stories submitted with each dish that showcases the diversity of Auckland’s food scene – the talented people, the places, the cultures, the experiences, the flavours,” she said.

One person who submits a story will be declared the winner of Iconic Auckland Eats 2021 and enjoy vouchers for all 100 winning eats.

Nominations are now open and stories can be submitted at www.iconiceats.co.nz... up to 31 August 2021.

Dear neighbours,

We're looking for lockdown gardening ideas! With New Zealanders stuck at home everyone is keen to get into their gardens, but they can't get to the shops to buy plants and seeds. So we want to hear from you some suggestions for crops you can start or sow from what you have on hand or useful gardening hacks using just what you have at home already without going to the shops.

It doesn't have to be a big idea - just something like growing spring onions from the base or sprouting avocado seeds to make a houseplant. Send your tips and ideas to mailbox@nzgardener.co.nz and we'll publish the best ideas in NZ Gardener.

Make sure you include your full name and address - only your name and the region you live in will be published but if we use your tip we will send you a free copy of the magazine.

It would entail a couple of complimentary sessions with myself, usually about an hour each. In return, there will be a form that you would need to complete which is easy peasy and no stress :). This would definitely help me complete my studies which is a passion of mine. If you often self sabotage & not sure why or maybe you lack self confidence & need to prioritize yourself again or a bit of clarity in your life is required then we could be a good fit. If you're curious to know more, then definitely get in touch. I'm based on the shore however can travel. Really appreciate the help :). With a smile ✌.

All regions outside of the Auckland and Northland region will move to Alert Level 3 11.59pm Tuesday August 31.

In a press conference Friday afternoon, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed that Auckland and Northland will likely need to complete a further full two weeks at level 4 in order to keep the Delta variant from spreading further in the regions.

Here's what you need to know
- There will be regional boundaries, there will be no travel allowed between regions unless required for essential services.
- Boundaries maintained in the last February lockdown will be reinstated.
- Around 500 locations of interest have been identified.
- The exposure site in Warkworth is a large workplace. Ardern hoped the people of Northland will understand why they're moving with caution. Northland won't always be grouped in with Auckland.
