The delicious Lemon Meringue Pie Cookie At Moustache sit on a baking tray.

Let's face it, there's nothing better than discovering (and tasting) everything that's new in the world of food so we've done the hard yards for you.

Sink your teeth into these tasty tidbits from around the country. You're welcome.

  • Last week culinary legend Peter Gordon opened the country's first-ever 'food embassy' in Auckland (get the lowdown on this exciting new project here).

  • Fount Coffee Co has arrived in Orewa. Hit up this rad new spot—which also has a branch in Mt. Eden—for bloody good coffee, cabinet food, ready-to-eat meals and desserts, in the space formerly occupied by Jess' Underground Kitchen.

  • Hot off the back of their mega-sized mallowpuff creation, Moustache are bringing us a limited-edition lemon meringue pie cookie. This bad boy drops on Wednesday 25 and is available for just one week only, so do yourself a favour and get in store ASAP.

  • It's never too early to get into the festive spirit—especially when there's food involved—so be sure to check out Hotel Grand Windsor's Christmas High Tea, featuring all of their classic treats, only with a holiday twist and available from now until Christmas Eve.

  • Get your street food with a side of sea views this Thursday night as Double Dutch Fries, Hapunan Filipino, The Rolling Pin and others descend on Milford Reserve between 5-9pm.

  • Burger Burger have cooked up a seriously sweet special-edition donut featuring raspberry compote, whipped cream, raspberry popping candy and the pièce de résistance—Tony's Chocolonely white chocolate. Grab yours before they're gone.

  • Summer vibes are just a sip away thanks to Six Barrel Soda Co. and Iko Iko's new Piña Colada Syrup, a fun and fruity blend best enjoyed with soda water and a splash of rum. And yes, by Iko Iko, we do mean the iconic shop on Cuba Street.

The Bavarian Christmas Schnit looks delicious on a plate.

  • If schnitzel and shandy sounds like your kinda thing, then head on over to The Bavarian, who are offering exactly that as part of a larger festive menu. We're especially loving their Christmas schnit topped with butterflied grilled prawns in garlic and herb butter...

  • Krispy Kreme's festive doughnuts are finding their way into stores for another year. So far we've spotted cute-ass Christmas puddings and Christmas trees, complete with Kit Kat trunks (naturally, we grabbed both).

  • The Food Truck Collective is teaming up with Everybody Eats for a night of delish street eats, live music and community spirit in Onehunga this Saturday night, from 5-9pm.

  • We're raising a glass to Steinlager, who are the country's first and only major beer brand to become carbon zero certified. Every step of the beer-making process has seen emissions reduced or offset, meaning that next drink will now taste even sweeter.

  • For those evenings when you need a nourishing meal NOW, Scarecrow have your back. They're launched a range of tasty heat and eat meals including housemade pies, tagine and lasagna which can be on the table in a matter of minutes.

  • Calling all cookie monsters, Tip Top and Cookie Time have combined their collective deliciousness inside tubs of Crave Cookie Time Crush. Think dreamy vanilla ice cream, studded with crushed Cookie Time chocolate chip cookies and a yummy caramel ripple.
