Welcome to Stuff Cooks

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

Hi everyone - I am the food editor at Stuff and I will be posting recipes, kitchen hacks and weekly meal plan ideas on this page. If you have any recipes to share or questions, feel free to send me a message.
If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
