HOME takes read­ers on a culi­nary road trip

In search of culi­nary great­ness, HOME takes to the road with a group of read­ers in Auck­land.

Once a year, HOME leads a group of en­thu­si­asts around Auck­land’s kitchen ex­perts, tak­ing in the lat­est in hard­ware, work­flow, ap­pli­ances and ma­te­ri­als. It’s an in­tense day of dis­cus­sion, to which our de­sign­ers bring ex­per­tise and read­ers bring burn­ing ques­tions. This year, we started at HOME’s of­fices in the City Works Depot for pas­tries and sin­gle-ori­gin fil­ter cof­fee from Cof­fee Supreme, be­fore head­ing to Taka­puna to visit the new show­room of Kitchens by De­sign. Here, de­sign­ers Mar­i­anne Gailer and Sue Gill­banks talked us through the de­sign process of their two brand-new stu­dio kitchens, and fielded some rather de­tailed ques­tions from the floor. Then we headed to hard­ware man­u­fac­turer Blum for a work­shop on kitchen de­sign and flow, be­fore sit­ting down to a fab­u­lous long lunch by chef and writer Sam Man­ner­ing: ar­ti­san cheese with smoked fish ril­lettes and ku­mara sour­dough; a warm salad of roast salmon, spuds, ri­cotta and ca­pers; radic­cio and wild leaves – and a glass or two of rosé. First up af­ter lunch, we crossed town to Kouz­ina in Par­nell, where Nicky Dug­gan from Evo­lu­tion of Sur­faces – the agents for Co­rian – and de­signer Mor­gan Cronin dis­cussed new prod­ucts and some beau­ti­ful re­cent projects. Fi­nally, and with an­other glass in hand, we vis­ited Matisse, to view the lat­est in kitchens by An­to­nio Cit­te­rio by Ar­clinea, made in Italy to ex­act­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tions by a fam­ily-owned Euro­pean com­pany. We thor­oughly en­joyed hav­ing ev­ery­one along. Look out for Kitchen Day next year.
