Lame or Lush? The Truth About New Zealand Food

New Zealand food. Not exactly the most talked about cuisine in the world.

Living in New Zealand With Food Allergies

Living in New Zealand With Food Allergies

Yesterday I was asked by a member of our private community, ‘Is the food in New Zealand better?’ 

While this is a huge topic (and those who know me will have probably guessed my answer), I said it would depend on where you are comparing it to. Compared to the UK, yes, I think that the food in New Zealand is better. It tastes more ‘real’.

Don’t ask me to define real because I can’t. Sorry. Let’s just say it hits a different spot on the taste buds.

After talking to this community member for a while I discovered her reason for asking the above question. She had severe food allergies and was trying to gauge what life in New Zealand would look like. 

In this week’s show, I talk to Jen Morris. Jen is from the Youtube channel, A Thousand Words. She emigrated to New Zealand over a decade ago and she has various food intolerances and allergies that she lives with.

Or is all this kindness stuff a big fat cover-up to keep the MIQ staff in a job? 

Let’s go for a walk and find out.
