Favourite foodie finds

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite foodie finds on your travels through NZ. Have you come across a particularly amazing cafe, bakery restaurant or food truck? Had an especially delicious pie, burger, sandwich, smoothie bowl or cronut? Been to what must be one of the country's best fish and chip joints? Or been pleasantly surprised by a town's food scene? Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.

What are your plans for back-to-back days above 30 degrees?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Monday Christchurch,

It's set to be a scorcher of a week in The Garden City.

MetService's seven-day forecast says Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to hit highs of 35 and 32 degrees respectively – well over January's average maximum temperature of 23 degrees.

A high of 28 degrees is forecast for Monday (today).

How will you make the most of (or avoid) the heat this week?
