Taste of Auckland – Winners announcement

Happy Friday everyone! With a big thank you to Taste of Auckland in partnership with Electrolux, I am pleased to announce the three winners to my Taste of Auckland double pass giveaway.

The winners are…
*drumroll please*
Alice Chan, Mira Bi and Kiely Evans!

Congratulations! I hope you and your friends enjoy your time at Taste of Auckland. Thanks to all who entered and if you missed out, don’t be sad,  I’m also giving away a $150 voucher for New World over here.


Taste of Auckland in partnership with Electrolux is back for the eighth year in a row. Running from Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 November 2016 and once again at Western Springs, Taste of Auckland will be settling in for 6 sessions over 4 days of al fresco dining with wine and cocktails.

Check out my write up about last year’s event and the year before last if you’re feeling eager and if you missed it, check out my intro post for this year’s event here.

Advance tickets General admission $25, Premium $60 (includes 40 crowns), VIP $110. Concessions available. Door sales $35 (if available). Tickets can be purchased via iTicket here. For more information about Taste of Auckland visit their website here or keep up to date with announcements via the event page on Facebook here.


The menus for the day have been announced here. I’m super keen to try Farina’s newest Taste offering…will it take the title of Best in Taste for the third year in a row?
