Queenstown’s Gourmet Secrets Unlocked with Peppers

Leading boutique accommodation group, Peppers, has unveiled the secrets to Queenstown’s gourmet food scene as part of the ‘Peppers Gourmet Food Trail’ – a national program that celebrates fine food and wine across seven New Zealand Peppers retreats and resorts.

Set amongst the plethora of dining options that make up the vibrant Queenstown foodie enclave, Peppers Beacon Queenstown has made it easy for guests with the Queenstown Food Trail map - a selection of the top spots for fine dining; family friendly restaurants; after dark night caps and best breakfast and brunch cafes. To make it even easier for Peppers guests, a charge-back facility has been organised with selected venues along with preferred seating wherever possible.

The Queenstown Food Trail map is offered with the Peppers Gourmet Food Trail package which starts from $249 per night in a studio room and includes buffet breakfast for two people. And so the culinary journey can begin on arrival, guests will also enjoy freshly baked bread and a tasting platter featuring the flavours and foods of the Otago region including some of the world’s most desired indulgences; chocolate and cheese. The Remarkable Sweet Shop Crème Brulee Fudge will satisfy the sweetest tooth complemented by the silky smooth Windsor Blue by Whitestone Cheese.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Scoop Review Of Books:

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
