News Update! More Changes at Eat Auckland

Hi I’m Mary Taylor, and I’m enjoying being the new owner of Eat Auckland Tours. If you’ve already met me, you’ll know that food is my passion and my mission is “through food, an insight into another world”. Covid has limited our ability to travel to another world, but fortunately Auckland has a richly diverse and incredibly interesting food scene. 

Winter Update

Have you heard of thermogenesis? – warming the body from within- mainly with spices. Before Covid I spent winters abroad in my favourite warm food destinations. Luckily we can now get thermogenetically warm on my Auckland tours! My Sandringham Spice and Panmure Taste of Sri Lanka Tours include plenty of warming and ayurvedic herbs and spices such as Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, curry leaves and ginger whilst Dominion Road Taste of China and Panmure Hidden Secrets Tours  includes Yang foods; known for body warming.

Developing new tours has linked me to some passionate foodies that reinforce my Byline- ‘through food an insight into another’s world”. In Panmure Ali has found that manuka and kanuka can heat his wood-fired oven to the same temperatures as back home- his Persian flat bread is delicious; and Cambodian Sam finds that lemon grass, tamarind, ginger and 12 other secret ingredients have given him the  satay skewer taste he remembers from his childhood.

On a cold day there is nothing quite like a masala chai. All tours include a local beverage; whether it be a mango lassi in Sandringham, a Bubble Tea in Dominion road or a High Country or Jasmine tea in Panmure.

Lincoln Tan from the NZ Herald has tempted me to explore some new flavour destinations in Auckland …………. watch this space! Read his  NZ Herald article on how EatAuckland can help you taste the world without travelling overseas.

Hope to see you soon! Mary
