Since February 6 is Waitangi Day in New Zealand, let me talk up the new Kiwi bakery, BurtonNZ Bakery in the Town of Windsor. Finally something new and different! It opened in December and I had a chance to stop by this week. My first question was to ask if Pavlovas were on the menu. Not yet, but the recipe is being refined and perfected and will be in production in the near future. Then another customer walked in and had a near meltdown when she learned that the Lamingtons were sold out. She confided to me that they're "YUMMY!" We were learned they're not baked every day but one can call to find out availability.

An array of samples were on top of the counter. A tub of rich Anchor butter from NZ was provided with the bread samples. Several of the sweet baked goods seemed to be variants of bar cookies. An example would be Ginger Crunch, $2.25, intense gingery buttery and almost fudge-like frosting layered on rich shortbread. Another was the Louise Slice, $1.75, that was a dryish cake-like and less dense base covered with raspberry jam and coconut meringue.

On the savory side, the Steak and Potato Top Pie, $6, came out of the hot box ready to eat. The firm crust and chopped steak with a bit of cheese covered with piped and delicately browned mashed potatoes seemed a bit understated and bland. Much more interesting was the Sausage Roll, $2.75, with buttery flakey pastry encasing a dense and meaty sausage core. That one's truly crave-able.
