Going to be exploring both the north and south islands over the next few weeks. Our vacations always tend to become foodie tours. Would appreciate suggestions for restaurants (hole-in-the wall to fine dining), artisan bread bakeries (I'm an artisan baker), cheesemakers and cheese shops/delis.
In the following cities/areas:
Auckland (The Grove, French Cafe ...)
Lake Taupo (L)
Wellington (Logan Brown, Ortega Fish Shack ...)
Arrowtown/Lake Hayes (L) (Amisfield Winery Bistro ...)
