Good news.

Good news.
We have managed to go remote with our NZQA fulltime courses! NZSFWLive is our new online learning platform where our tutors live-stream their classes to students at home. The cookery students have been supplied with ingredients, and in some cases, bowls, trays, sieves and pots, so that they watch the demonstration and then prepare it themselves at home. They then upload a photo of what’s cooked. We are using Google Classrooms and Hangouts to connect.
Here is Chef Finn preparing a cheese soufflé. Click here for the recipe to have a go yourself.

During the #lockdown our premises will remain closed but you can contact us on admin@foodandwine.co.nz

Covid-19

Alan from Flat Bush

Ok, Covid-19 has finally gotten real in NZ and we're about to experience what other countries have already.

Ok, Covid-19 has finally gotten real in NZ and we're about to experience what other countries have already.

One thing we will desperately need is helping hands, particularly drivers, who are able to shop for the vulnerable, or pick up and carry medication.

If you, or anyone you know, has been laid off and is looking for work, please get them to get in contact with me through Neighbourly. I will be keeping it open to ensure we get as many people as possible involved. This is a national problem, so it doesn't matter whether you're in Temuka or Takapuna.

The need will be huge and I've been working on setting up teams all this week, in anticipation of where we are now. I'm dealing with the Ministry of Health as well as supermarket chains.

Please share this with everyone you can, so we can find everyone who is capable of helping. We want to talk to people who are being sensible enough to be taking extreme precautions themselves. We want to protect, not infect.

They will be paid for their work - this is not voluntary and the intention is to provide an essential service as well as enabling people with no income to earn a few dollars and provide for their own families.

So let's all join in to beat this little sucker a billion times smaller than us.

veggie seedlings & micro greens

Rachael Neighbourly Lead from Drury

We’re considering a “No Contact “ gate stand selling organic live micro greens and veggie seedlings. For limited times, limited days.
Live Micro greens are unhandled food and therefore essential, and I know folk are wanting the seedlings , but dear neighbours what are your thoughts please?

We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

New Zealand Government

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.

Kia kaha New Zealand.

The Team from Auckland Museum

It takes an extraordinary situation for Auckland Museum to close its doors to the public. However it has happened before.

It takes an extraordinary situation for Auckland Museum to close its doors to the public. However it has happened before.

In 1918, the Spanish Influenza had arrived on New Zealand's shores. In the Auckland Institute and Museum's 1918-1919 Annual Report, there is a very short reference to the epidemic's affect on the Museum:

"The recent epidemic of influenza has greatly affected the attendance at the Museum. In the first place, it necessitated the closing of the Institution from November 3 to December 1, or nearly a full month, and after re-opening it was at least another month before the attendance became normal."

We too, will open again, and while it may take a while to get back to normal, we can get there together.

Let's unite against COVID-19. Kia kaha New Zealand. Stay at home, be calm and be kind. He waka eke noa.
