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!

Praise about the Newmarket tour by
journalist and foodie Nicky Pellegrino in the ecent
article "Food Adventures: Five of the Best" in the Herald on
Sunday, 30 June, 2013: "I thought I knew Auckland
pretty well but it turns out there are all sorts of foodie
treasures hidden away. Lynn Huhtala's Finding Flavour food
walking tours are a fascinating way to make new discoveries....I
leave with a shopping bag full of new ingredients and flavours to
experiement with, plus some great tips from Lynn and the food
purveyors I've met."

Alexia Santamaria and I were honoured to be guest judges in
annual Metro Magazine Cheapeats restaurant review,
2012 and 2013. Read our blog Cheapeats.co.nz for reviews

New Cheapeats Partnership with Dine In
We are very excited to announce a new partnership with restaurant
delivery site Dine
In. We think it's a great idea to be able to order
food from restaurants without leaving your couch, especially at
this time of year when things are so busy! They currently only have
38 restaurants in Auckland but are in the process of expansion so
this will change soon.
With this in mind I thought I'd give the service a go and use
our Cheapeats20 discount coupon (available to all of you until the
end of January) Visit www.dinein.co.nz , take a few
minutes to sign up and then choose a restaurant to your liking and
place your order. Your food will be delivered usually within
45 minutes. Make sure you use the Cheapeats20
