Food and Wine Discovery Tours for Foodies
Welcome to Finding Flavour, Auckland's specialist foodie
Praise from Nici Wickes, presenter of "World Kitchen " tv series
and restaurant reviewer for Viva, NZ Herald, who joined
our World in A Day: Eastern Suburbs Tour:
"I loved the tour from start to
finish! Lynn introduced us to places and products I never knew
existed in my own city. It was fabulous to meet the people behind
the businesses and to sample delicious food all day. A perfect day
in my books!"
Come and join us on a food exploration tour in Auckland,
Wellington and beyond. There are other foodies to meet,
delicious cuisines to discover and markets to shop on a Finding
Flavour tour. We take you to meet the people passionate
about their cuisine, and to markets and specialty food outlets
which will enable you to recreate authentic dishes at home.
Get a behind the scenes look at some of the Auckland
region's unique food and wine suppliers. We will enjoy
some delicious food tastings and of course, time for
shopping! Pick up useful cooking tips and ideas to take
home. You will be taken on a tour of discovery by experienced
guides who are also foodies.
The places that we take you are the places that we want to share
with you. We are totally independent and pay for all our
tastings. The only thing that we ask of the businesses is to
give you a warm welcome!
Savour delicious cuisines and learn new skills at our special
themed lunches or cooking classes.
We have a foodie world to discover!
See our programme below. Join us!
