Waikato competition goes in search of the best cheese toastie

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi Waikato,

Would you pay $40 for a cheese toastie?

You might do if it came with a lobster tail sat between a golden Volare brioche, buffalo mozzarella, crayfish oil and crispy Vandy bacon crumbs.

The dish is just one of many over 30 Waikato's chefs have let their creative minds run wild for during this year's Meyer Cheese Melt Challenge.

The competition, which sees a reimagining of the classic cheese toastie, is back for its second year and the entries are crazier than ever.

Think you know how old your dog is? Think again.

Multiplying by seven isn't accurate, a new study says. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and other leading health institutions across the country have now debunked that common belief.

According to their findings, a one-year-old dog is similar to a 31-year-old human.
