Auckland’s food scene is fast-paced and always changing, keeping up with it all just becomes too much sometimes! To keep you in-the-know, we’ve had our eyes peeled for the newest openings and products around the city.
Without further ado, here’s a round-up of the foodie news you need to know this week!
Fix & Fogg Together With Coffee Supreme
The magicians of peanut butter, Fix & Fogg and masters of coffee, Coffee Supreme have joined forces to provide us with a brand new flavour of peanut butter which may be their best ever. Say hello to the latest addition to the family, Coffee and Maple. It’s a blend of Fix & Fogg’s infamous smooth PB with Coffee Supreme’s Supreme Blend and pure Canadian Maple syrup for that hint of sweetness. Click here for more information.
The Natural Confectionary, 25% Less Sugar
Can you really call yourself an Aucklander if you haven’t demolished a bag of Natural Confectionary’s bag of snakes? Well, you can continue to do so with a little less guilt as they have launched a range of 25% less sugar! The range includes the classic fave, Snakes, Frogs and Fruit Basket which all have no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. Hop to your local supermarket to get a bite of these semi-healthy sweets!
La Pêche Pop Up Begins
The culinary power couple from Paris will be holding their highly anticipated French pop-up restaurant at Dear Jervois and this Thursday is when they’ll first open their doors! Rumour has it that they’re almost fully booked for all two weeks but there are a couple of seats left and walk-ins are always welcome. Click here to save your spot!
Daily Bread Have A New Croissant Recipe
Sourdough croissants are no longer a thing at Daily Bread as they have recently switched it up to a French recipe of pure, buttery goodness. The new pastries at Daily Bread are golden, crispy, flaky and more indulgent than ever and it’s worth checking them out. They are located on Great North Road and Faraday Street so get amongst it!
Mint Cakery Have Relocated
Mint Cakery have closed their little store on Pt. Chev and have moved on to bigger and better things in Ellerslie! The new shop is set to open on later this month we could not be more excited. The news doesn’t stop there, Table Talk will be moving their sammies, pies and treats into the old Pt. Chev cake store! But don’t you worry as their Remuera store will remain open too.
Aqua S Fortnight Flavour
It’s that time of the month again, Aqua S introduce two new flavours of soft serves! Say farewell to the crème brulee and snickers and say hello to their new spring vibe flavours, banana milkshake and honey lavender. You can mix both of these with their original sea salt to elevate the flavours or just have them on their own but don’t forget to add some caramel popcorn!
La Petite Fourchette’s Fancy Cookies
Our favourite French patisserie La Petite Fourchette on Wynyard Quarter have proved their talents when it comes to crafting the perfect pastry, petit gateaux and mille-feuille but now they’re showing us what they’re capable of in the cookie department. Their cookies aren’t just any old regular cookie as they’re topped with ganache, fresh nuts and praline.
