my first open bottle at home since Lent started; those 40 days are wonderfully habit forming, and have me appreciating this beautiful drop all the more

won’t share all the dishes, but this was both pretty and delicious: crab and pickled melon (@ Cafe Paci)

this is a pretty stunning way to eat broccoli: pan-fried in anchovy butter and egg yolk, served with cayenne-whipped hollandaise (@ Cafe Paci)

settling in at cafe paci: weird drinks, weirder food, and a french chanson soundtrack; I’m hooked already (@ Cafe Paci)

my most anticipated superhero team of the season! a wild, crazy ride; and for a franchise that’s always been about the family we find, a fitting tribute to Paul Walker

11April2015 10:08

arrived home to a fresh pile of books; a couple of female-led fantasy series I can call research for my own upcoming novel

having walked all morning, I’m allowing myself a waffle stop before I leave; Auckland you’ve been swell (@ The Shelf)

out to Auckland’s inner suburbs for a raw/vegan hit; delicious tacos, cold drip coffee, and ginger kombucha (@ Little Bird Cafe in Ponsonby)

came back for breakfast. this thing! (a great way to eat beans) (@ Odettes Eatery)

10April2015 06:07

and for dessert (slash breakfast), wood-fired camembert, peach, and crumble, with a crisp rosé; this is just stunning (@ Odettes Eatery)

10April2015 06:06

mix-and-matching, pickled olives & lavosh, wild mushrooms and “donuts”, and estrella on tap (@ Odettes Eatery)

found an Auckland hipster hangout; delicious quinoa bowl with black bean and pumpkin, and cold-pressed juice (@ Misters)

high drama in Auckland today! what I thought was a small kitchen fire drove us from our coffees. but then the fire made the news, and apparently they’re not simply reopening tomorrow. don’t actually know if it was serious or just more than this little city is used to. #toocute (@ Depot)

in the land of the flat white, this is what I get even ordering a latte; silky smooth though, so worth it (@ Depot)

Auckland, midnight. As we drove in I wondered what the massive spire was; turns out it’s Sky Tower, and I’m sleeping under it. (@ SKYCITY Grand Hotel)

another classic ‘I have no idea what I’m doing’ invention; a spiced stew, I guess: lentils, quinoa, and tomato; cumin, coriander, paprika; a pile of mushroom & veg; and a bit of tahini to thicken it; transcontinental, and sublime

homemade spiced corn and cauliflower fritters, all from fresh; a lot of work, and not pretty, but so so tasty
