Good Food Guide - - Waiheke Island -

A lovely drive through Te Motu Vine­yard brings you to the aptly named, cute and quirky “Shed”. The am­bi­ence is wel­com­ing, ca­sual and re­laxed; per­fect for Wai­heke. Chef Bron­wen Laight em­braces the sea­sons and goes to great lengths to source dif­fi­cult-to-find in­gre­di­ents such as fresh sar­dines (from North­land), as well as grow­ing much of the pro­duce on-site. The menu com­ple­ments the Bordeaux-style wines for which the win­ery is known, and changes reg­u­larly to re­flect what’s avail­able – you might have mush­room pierogi with horseradish ke­fir, caramelised onion and smoked oys­ter mush­room, or line-caught Leigh po­rae with potato, fen­nel, saf­fron broth and almond rouille. Desserts are in­no­va­tive – think dulce de leche ice cream, cho­co­late, spelt pan­cake, ma­cadamia brit­tle and ba­nana. 76 One­tangi Rd, One­tangi, ph: 09-372 6884, Lunch Wed-sun, din­ner Fri-sat; large plates $25-$34 IN BRIEF Great pro­duce-led food in a charm­ing set­ting
