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.

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Bank Phishing Email

Susan from Cambridge

Heads up people. There is another bank / email phishing scam on the rounds - this morning I found one supposedly from BNZ asking me to 'click here to confirm' my email address or I wouldn't be able to access my funds. 24 hr deadline or my funds would be frozen. Strangely enough it was sent to my email - sarcastic laughter. If you receive this or any such email supposedly from your own bank, DON'T click anything before you have first rung and checked with them.
Take care out there and have a great day.
