2017 Auckland Food Show

Let’s face it, people often inadvertently move in circles. The day at The Food Show, started and ended with donuts.

The leisurely meander through the halls of The Food Show with foodlovers Genie, Bunny Eats Design and Bri Dimattina Food Adventures entailed many looped routes as we strolled from the Fresh Market to the Healthy Hub to the Artisan Village and everything in between.

We tasted and then tasted some more, talking to fellow foodies and producers along the way.  Cameras were always at the ready, stallholders became accustomed to displays being rearranged, and products being lined up, always obliging with a smile or friendly banter.
