But the main event in most calendars this week is The Auckland Food Show. We've had a sneak peak at what's on offer this year and have compiled our list of what not to miss. I find the show total madness but year after year I come out of it having seen lots of old acquaintances and met lots of new ones.

I am always inspired, informed and hugely proud of the New Zealand food industry. If you are quick and enter today you could win a very special VIP experience to The Show. See you there!

Travel hugely inspires us in the kitchen and Ray McVinnie has recently toured The Sunshine Coast, returning to cook Kin Kin General Store's poached chicken salad and this pot-roasted pork shoulder with pineapple and Chinese greens was inspired by a recipe in a community cookbook he picked up in Eumundi.
