When I started Bibliocook in New Zealand almost a year ago, there weren’t that many NZ food blogs. Barbara at Auckland’s Winos and Foodies was in contact early on and I’ve since enjoyed reading her posts about Real Mexican Hot Chocolate, pumpkins, wine and books – I have to especially credit her with introducing me to remarkable Australian chef Gay Bilson. On one of my regular wanders over to Winos and Foodies I suddenly realised that there was a list of new food blogs on her side nav. After spending a couple of hours wandering around their sites, I now introduce you to several of the (blogging) foodies in NZ…
Macaroon obsessive Céline, a self-described French Gastronaut in New Zealand, blogs at An Angel at My Table. I was particularly interested in her post about a competition for talented home cooks in Christchurch – makes me long to be back there and planning my own menu.
Besides discovering her link on Barbara’s page, I happened on Christine Davis at Neato a couple of times when looking for some information on cheesemaking in NZ. Just watch her Stilton get bluer and bluer!
Formerly known as Green Eggs and Spam, now Bron has moved her creative cooking to Bron Marshall. I’m really loving her Valentine’s Day Shrewsbury Hearts.
