Style explores the best of Christchurch, giving readers the opportunity to

develop and celebrate their individual style in life, home and fashion. A monthly

publication, Style is presented on high-grade gloss stock with a hard cover.

Delivered flow-wrapped to top real estate value homes around Christchurch,

Style targets readers with a high disposable income. Designed to inspire,

Style has a lengthy shelf life that offers excellent value for your advertising choice.

AUGUST 2017

Welcome to the August issue of Style,

In this issue, we focus on all things art and design, starting with page

17, where we pay tribute to Denis Savill, Australasia’s most prominent art

dealer. Sadly, after 40 years in the industry, he will be closing the doors on

his Sydney art gallery. Born and bred in Canterbury, Savill’s story shows us

that passion and determination that are driving forces behind success.

In our report, we will take you on a tour around some of New Zealand's

most spectacular resorts. From Hawke’s Bay to Canterbury, we discover what

makes an exceptional resort – the images alone will take your breath away.

Do you need renovation inspiration? If so, look no further than page

28, where we take a house tour of a stunning rebuild in Heaton Street,

Merivale. With the owners saying goodbye to a classic art deco house after

the earthquakes, it's brilliant to see that new design and builds in the city are

creating as much charm as their classic counterparts.

As always, we keep you up to date with fashion and beauty news, with

some exciting new developments and relocations in Christchurch. And, after

a harsh winter, your inner health might be a little sluggish, so I suggest reading

our wellbeing section on prebiotics and probiotics – it’s important to know

the difference.

Finally, if you are planning a luxury escape or a winter pampering session,

be sure to read our etiquette column on how not to act...

Le Creuset is celebrating life in vivid colour with the newest additions to their iconic kitchenware range. This new collection speaks of exotic

aromas and warming spices and introduces a new line of spice-influenced products to the Le Creuset range, including spice tagines, woks, balti

dishes, Indian condiment pots, spice grinders and more.

This winter it appears everyone is going chocolate-mad including Mac’s Beer, who have released a new chocolate stout. Kurt Gross, brewer

and Lion Beer Ambassador says: “This is not ‘confectionary’ chocolate, so don’t be expecting a chocolate bar in a bottle – this is stone ground,

rich, bittersweet (70% cacao) hand-packed and the highest quality – nothing but the best for our fans!”

Nail-care experts Essie have called upon the fabulous mod culture of the sixties to create a gorgeous collection of limited-edition nail

Rumour has it The Arts Centre is liaising with six domestic and

international hotel operators about operating a potential arts-themed,

boutique 32-room hotel on the site. The proposed hotel will be

located within the former Physics and Biology buildings and the ground

floor of the adjacent Observatory Tower.

A new charitable initiative has launched to help rehome some of

the hundreds of dogs rescued annually in Canterbury from situations

of abuse and neglect. The website replacethem.co.nz takes the

quirky approach of matching dogs with the physical characteristics

of children of potential adopters. The campaign has several local pet

charities involved including Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust, K9 Rescue and

Rehoming, and Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue, in a bid to have empty

nesters ‘replace’ their children with rescue dogs.

What do you do to relax?

ART

CLOSE TO THE

After 40 years working as Australasia’s premier art dealer, Canterbury-born

Denis Savill will shut the door on his Sydney gallery. Style pays tribute to

the achievements and diversity of his career.

Words Naomi Spinsby-Wild


18 STYLE | interview

It was a novel about Vincent van Gogh, plucked from a library shelf

during a cold Canterbury winter that first piqued a 14-year-old

Denis Savill’s interest in the world of art. Brought up on a high country

sheep station outside of Hanmer Springs, Savill spent much of his

childhood in Christchurch, boarding first at Medbury, then at Christ’s

College during his formative years.

A desire to see the world saw 20-something Denis travel

throughout Europe before settling in London, where he was reintroduced

to art when a friend encouraged him to get involved

with a nearby auction room, which happened to sell many works of

Australian and New Zealand origin.

Not quite finished with travelling, however, the young Kiwi soon

moved to Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia), where he talked his way into a

job with an auction house. The work was diverse and varied, with lots

that ranged from livestock and real estate to, yes, art. Savill was one of

the few who recognised the investment potential of the works he saw,

commenting, “I was fascinated by these paintings, bearing in mind what

I’d been told in London.”

By the 1970s, Savill had relocated to Sydney and was making waves

in the art scene, quickly establishing himself as both a knowledgeable

art dealer and a shrewd investor. Well ahead of his time, he

recognised the value of Australasian art, and began building up a

collection of works by a diverse range of artists.

Purchasing Gordon Marsh Gallery in 1981, after a couple of years

spent working as a private art dealer, Savill swiftly began carving out

a name for himself within the industry. He caught national and global

attention when, the following year, he set a record for the most

expensive painting ever sold in Australia, a work by J.A. Turner that

fetched $350,000.

Savill confirmed his presence in the Australasian art scene by renaming

and re-branding the gallery to the name it has now operated

under for the last 30 years, the eponymous Savill Galleries, based in

Sydney’s sought-after inner-city suburb of Paddington. Throughout

the 1980s and ’90s he worked tirelessly to build up his collection,

acquiring works by such respected Australian painters as Charles

Blackman, Lloyd Rees and Arthur Boyd, among many others. As well

as advancing his career, Savill also formed deep connections with the

artists he encountered, building friendships that would go on to last a

lifetime.

Savill’s work has continued to command respect throughout his

career, with his collection only strengthening as time has gone on.

A benefactor as well, Savill has recently donated more than 200

artworks to galleries throughout Australia, re-affirming his commitment

to public art.

In recent years, the now 76-year-old Savill has been contemplating

the future of his business, and has reached the difficult decision to slowly

wind down both his gallery and his presence in the salesroom.

Reflecting on his long career, Savill calls to mind his dear friend, the

artist Arthur Boyd, a man he regarded as a “true gent”. Recalling a

conversation between them, Savill muses, “Arthur told me, ‘You’re a

great acquirer, but there will come a time when you’ll feel free to give

it away, you’ll feel like you’re unloading.’” Savill admits that he couldn’t

understand the sentiment at the time, but as the years have passed

since that conversation, Boyd’s words have come to resonate with

him more and more, and have guided him in his decision to take more

of a back seat in the art world. When asked how he feels about letting

go of the art that has defined his life’s work, he replies with a laugh,

“How come that’s the best question, and the hardest one to answer?”

Of the works he’s handled over the years, he says, “They’re dear to

my heart, but you can’t take them upstairs with you.”

Savill partnered with respected auction house Sotheby’s last year to

sell a selection of his accumulated works, including those by Charles

Blackman and Sidney Nolan. The auction garnered a huge amount of

interest not only from those looking to acquire the available pieces,

but also from those wishing to acknowledge the reputation and legacy

Savill has built over the decades. The chairman of Sotheby’s Australia,

Geoffrey Smith, used the opportunity to pay tribute to Savill’s

enduring contribution to the Australian art community, commenting

that the auction house was “honoured to be entrusted with the sale”,

and adding, “He’ll be missed more than we realise.”

“They’re dear to my

heart, but you can’t

take them upstairs

with you.”

Savill has also recently revealed that Sotheby’s will handle the sale

of two Brett Whiteley works for him in August, as part of his ongoing

effort to “decant” his collection, as he puts it. Two more works from

Savill’s collection will be sold at auction in Auckland, one an Isaac

Whitehead painting depicting Milford, and the other a Vera Cummings

portrait. The same auction house also handled the sale of two Colin

McCahon paintings for him last year, demonstrating that he is still

firmly in touch with the New Zealand art scene.

His recent downsizing is not an indicator that he’s losing passion

for the industry or his well-respected eye of quality, however. Just

two years ago, Savill invested more than $850,000 in another Brett

Whiteley piece, a 1988 painting entitled The Arrival, which he then

loaned to Sydney’s Mosman Art Gallery. What’s more, he’s recently

launched a fine art business, called, fittingly, Golden Days. Operating

by appointment only, the new venture demonstrates that while he’s

keen to enjoy a slightly slower pace, Savill isn’t a man who can ever

truly retire.

In Denis Savill, we see a true success story – someone who spent

years working hard and smart in the pursuit of his goals, and is now

calling it a day on his own terms, leaving the art world wanting more.

NEW ZEALAND’S FINEST

LUXURY

LODGES

Words Victoria Tait

Here in New Zealand, we have some of the world’s most outstanding luxury

lodges, with service and hospitality second to none. Follow us on a journey

through four of New Zealand’s most impeccable resort locations.

The Snug at Cape Kidnappers Lodge


22 STYLE | report

Prepare to have your breath taken

away – Cape Kidnappers

Once only reserved for the rich and

famous, New Zealand’s luxury lodges

were something we all heard about but never

experienced. Today, the lodges have become

more accessible to the New Zealand market as

local travellers increasingly seek escapism and

detachment from city life. It’s all about satisfying

the urge to feel lost and off the beaten track

for a little while, be it by a lake edge or a river

bank, perched on a cliff top or a mountainside.

On an international level, New Zealand’s

lodges are known as some of the best in the

world, and I’m happy to confirm that the

rumours are true.

I start my journey in the North Island’s

Hawke’s Bay, an area that is no stranger to

luxury and exceptional hospitality. The first stop

is The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, a luxury lodge

and wildlife reserve set within a 2428-hectare

sheep and cattle station, and bordered at the

east by the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day, it’s

possible to make out snow-capped Mount

Ruapehu on the horizon. Built to cater for all

seasons, there are many locations to relax in the

lodge – be it snuggled up by the fireplace in the

cooler months, or dining outside in the warmer

weather while taking in the stunning views of the

Cape. The barrel room (pictured left) is a mustsee

in its own right – a fantastic piece of interior

architecture.

Food and wine is a major component at

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, which features

a five-star, award-winning restaurant. The

kitchen is headed by James Honore, a Kiwi with

extensive international experience and whose

passion for local produce has seen the lodge

named in some of the world’s top travel and

food magazines. Every evening, the lodge sets

up a bar area where guests can enjoy predinner

drinks and canapés, and much of the

produce served to guests is sourced within the

region, either from local growers, or the lodge’s

own vegetable garden. Naturally, Hawke’s Bay

wine is also paired with produce, making the

dining experience outstanding.

The Farm is perhaps best known, however,

for its 71-par golf course, currently #39 in the

world, according to Golf Digest. If a day on

the links isn’t your cup of tea, the lodge also

offers indulgent spa treatments, an infinity pool

and hot tub, as well as ocean-side hikes and

farm tours. The accommodation structure has

three tiers, comprised of entry-level rooms,

residents’ suites, and the magnificent Owner’s

Cottage, with each room positioned to have a

spectacular panoramic view.

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is a sister

property to The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs in

Northland, and Matakauri Lodge near

Queenstown. The three super-luxury

properties – all owned and operated by

New York-based financier and philanthropist

Julian Robertson and family – are part of the

exclusive Relais & Chateaux hotel group. All

three offer world-class accommodation in

some of New Zealand’s most picturesque

locations and have all received international

recognition for their quality.

Robertson’s passion for wildlife and New

Zealand’s rugged beauty are evident in all three

lodges. His developments in New Zealand

started with the golf course at Kauri Cliffs, and

when friends visiting from America mentioned

that they wished it had accommodation, he

added the lodge. Following this, he fell in love

with the dramatic Hawke’s Bay coastline,

and upon making his way down the country,

developed Matakauri near Queenstown a

few years later. Robertson also owns a farm

in North Canterbury, so let’s keep our fingers

crossed that this could also, one day, become

the location for one of his spectacular lodges.

For now though, I could quite easily spend

endless days soaking up all that The Farm at

Cape Kidnappers has on offer.

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers

Best Time To Go: August-September, to

take advantage of the Lodge Life package.

Recommendations: Take a farm tour in a

four-wheel drive out to the bird colony, where

you can get up close and personal with New

Zealand wildlife.

Tariffs: Rates range from $1897.50 for a double

occupancy of a Hilltop Suite in the low season

(April-November) to $19,711 for the Owner’s

Cottage, which houses four guests in the high

season (December-January).

Venturing inland, we head to another

farm-style lodge with a completely different

atmosphere and feel. Poronui Lodge is situated

to the south-east of Lake Taupo, and is known

as one of the finest luxury wilderness lodges,

offering fly-fishing, trophy-hunting and horsetrekking

in a spectacular setting.

There are three accommodation options –

Poronui Lodge itself is a world-class wilderness

sporting lodge accompanied by seven adjoining

cabins overlooking the Taharua Valley. Described

as a “purpose-built facility designed to meet the

needs of the discerning angler”, the Lodge is the

heart of the Poronui experience. The rusticluxe

Safari Camp, on the banks of the Mohaka

River, is one of their most well-known options.

It has beautifully-appointed canvas-roofed and

walled cabins and takes glamping to an entirely

new level. Blake House is the stately owner’s

residence available on an exclusive basis only;

it can accommodate up to 16 people in four

double suites and two luxury bunkrooms.

Poronui has a great working relationship with

local iwi – Ngāti Tūwharetoa offer an excellent

opportunity to engage in the local indigenous

culture with their Kai Waho experiences. There’s

also horse riding, mountain biking, clay shooting

and hunting available.

Best Time To Go: November-January. The

Recommendations: Keep an eye on their

website for ultimate foodie weekends where

they bring in a top chef and often hold events in

the wine cellar – a rustic yet elegant location.

Tariff: Four guests, self-catered, at Blake House

is $2000 per night, all year round. A room in

the lodge will cost $900 per person, per night

in the high season (December-March), and

includes private chef, wait staff, canapés and

pre-dinner drinks, country breakfast, light lunch

and full daily service.

A world where elegant and generous hospitality meets

sophistication and style – Huka Lodge

Not far from the wilderness escape of

Poronui is the famous Huka Lodge. What was

a tented fishing stay in the 1920s has become a

retreat with a worldwide reputation.

Huka Lodge offers just 25 rooms including

18 Junior Lodge Suites, one double Lodge

Suite, the four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage

and the two-bedroom Alan Pye Cottage. The

suites all enjoy uninterrupted views of the deep

Waikato River, the sound of its rushing water

inducing relaxation in an instant. The grounds

boast a tennis court, swimming and spa pools,

petanque and croquet, and spa treatments are

also on offer.

One of the most endearing parts of Huka

Lodge is its private dining venues. More than 20

are hidden away in and around the property;

some amongst the garden, others in private

rooms within the lodge. Some of my personal

favourites are:

The Library: A cosy book-lined room which

is the only room The Queen has chosen to

dine in on her past three stays. The modest

room has tartan flooring and an open fire as the

centrepiece. It’s suitable for two to 10 guests.

The Wine Cellar: This is a spectacular

underground chamber across from the main

lodge that is lined with fine vintages, most which

are New Zealand wines. Can seat two to 10

guests, with the lodge often holding degustation

dinners here with famous chefs.

Jetty Pavilion: By far the most stunning dining

location. Here you can enjoy your meal or predinner

drinks right on the river bank. A mirror

situated behind the table, reflecting the river,

adds to the ambience of the setting. Can seat

two to six guests.

Green Room: One of the many outdoor

styled locations that offers complete seclusion

and privacy. Suitable for two to six diners.

Huka Lodge

Best Time To Go: September. Take advantage

of one of Huka Lodges retreats – the Wellness

Weekend (September 15-16). Running

over two-nights, experience a total body

rejuvenation with classes run by experts in yoga,

nutrition and wellbeing. A perfect girls weekend

or an ideal couples retreat.

Recommendations: A late night swim under

the stars in the heated pool and hot tub while

listening to the roaring river that is metres away.

Tariff: Autumn-winter rates see the Junior Suite

at $1255 per person, per night, up to the high

season rates for the Owner’s Cottage at $7188

per person, per night, for one suite.

LET THERE BE

LIGHT

The best parts of an art-deco home in Merivale were not forgotten

when the house was rebuilt to suit 21st century living.

Words Naomi Spinsby-Wild Photography Jamie Armstrong


STYLE | home 29


30 STYLE | home

The abundance of light in the home

is only reflected and enhanced by the

beautiful rich rimu flooring.

When speaking to Mike O’Donnell and Cathie Mcgrath

about their newly re-built Christchurch home, what comes

through most is their evident pride in the space they’ve created,

and the work that’s gone into turning a plan into reality.

When the 2011 earthquake meant that their 1940s artdeco

home needed to be rebuilt, the couple were naturally

disappointed, but were quick to realise the rare opportunity

they’d been given – to rebuild the house they loved in a style

more befitting of the 21st century. Mike and Cathie are the first

to admit that for all its period charm and years of memories,

the original house left a bit to be desired in terms of layout and

functionality, and put counteracting these issues at the heart

of their design brief. “Although art deco houses have beautiful

features, they don’t flow well, and there’s no light,” Cathie

explains, adding that for the new build the couple prioritised

“simple, light-filled, contemporary design”.

To ensure the important elements came together, the

homeowners enlisted Opus Architecture and Summitbuild, and

were thrilled with the collaborative effort.

To help the new four-bedroom, three-bathroom house

embrace modern living, they turned towards the sun, reorientating

the layout of the rooms to make the most out of

natural light. Generous windows in the open-plan kitchen and

living areas allow light the flood the home, bathing it in all-day

sun and accentuating the natural sense of space. Further light is

allowed in by way of the impressive bi-fold doors, which also

serve to link the house to the outdoor living area, again reconfiguring

the flow of the house for modern living. The deck is

another room in its own right, the couple say, and come summer,

it’s the perfect entertaining spot.

The abundance of light in the home is only reflected and

enhanced by the beautiful rich rimu flooring which runs through

and unites the central areas of the home – the warm glow it gives

being something both Mike and Cathie both rave about. The

flooring is particularly special to Cathie, since the rimu, as well

as the matai used in the bar, both come from her brother’s own

sawmill over on the West Coast.

... the rimu, as well as the matai used in

the bar, both come from her brother’s own

sawmill over on the West Coast.

The bar, Mike admits, is probably his personal favourite element

of the house, one which just had to be carried over from the

original home into its contemporary successor. Not only is it

a great social space, but also a testament to their design, as

it characterises what they loved about their old home, while

providing some modern flair.

Cathie, on the other hand, has a harder time isolating one

favourite room – she adores the formal living area, tucked into a

sunny nook of the north-facing home, but also loves the house's

sense of light, whether it be in the spacious kitchen, living and

dining area, or the generous master bedroom, which is complete

with en-suite and a walk-in wardrobe. The master bedroom

provides a clear view out to the Southern Alps and from the

street side; the Port Hills are clearly visible, making the view

“almost panoramic”, in Cathie’s words, as “every window gives a

different view”.

HEDGING

YOUR BETS

Landscape architect

Craig Wilson talks us

through how to add instant

elegance to the garden with

some simple hedging.

Hedges have a well-earned and highlycelebrated

place in the garden design

narrative. Their use spans many centuries from

historic French, Italian and English garden estates

through to the cutting-edge contemporary

landscape design of today. The ‘form’ and ‘intent’

may have changed over time but the principle

and simplicity of execution has remained, as

hedges are a cost-effective and naturalistic way

to define space in an outdoor setting. They

can be established within a few years and with

regular maintenance can be of benefit and

enjoyment for decades.

If you have hedging in mind for your property,

a suitable species selection will be key to your

success. Great options are available for our

Canterbury climate and conditions across

evergreen and deciduous species and with both

native and exotic origin.

Evergreen species tend to be a more popular

choice as they lend year-round foliage and

structure to your garden, forming the ‘bones’ or

‘skeletal’ structure of your outdoor space, if you

like. For this kind of planting, consider species

such as buxus, laurel, corokia and griselinia, as

their consistency and reliability will provide a

welcome relief and visual contrast to dormant

areas of the garden which are awaiting new

spring growth.

Deciduous options, on the other hand, can

include the more traditional hornbeam and

beech species or may even extend to the

contemporary choice of muehlenbeckia, which

will all provide the same form and structure

as an evergreen hedge, but also provide rich

seasonal expression.

The cost of establishing a hedge will always be

less than the physical construction of a timber

or masonry wall, and while more costly ‘instant’

hedging can be sourced, a true hedge will take

time to establish itself and create the desired

effect of screening or edging.

Over time a hedge will require regular

maintenance to keep it in optimum health

and good shape. Once again, selecting the

right species is vital and choosing a hedge that

matches your appetite for ongoing maintenance

is important. If you don’t want to be regularly

clipping to keep a crisp look, avoid fastergrowing

varieties like lonicera and teucrium.

In recent years, I have noticed increased

interest in the use of ‘pleaching’ as a horticultural

technique to create a ‘hedge on stilts’. This

can be particularly useful on smaller sections

to screen out a neighbour’s roofline and can

be easily and quickly achieved by the use of

‘standardised’ specimens.

The use of hedges will remain a common

element in garden design and can bring a

degree of structure and order to any outdoor

space, without creating too much formality or

compromising on style.

Megan and Lee have

a young family.

JESSICA

WINCHCOMBE

FASHION JEWELLERY

Anne Hudson takes a look at the work of a gifted New Zealand

jeweller, whose talent has taken her from Queenstown to Milan.

Jessica Winchcombe’s work exudes the

haptic pleasure of making. Carefully

pleated or woven leather necklaces and

folded metal earrings are the product of

careful time and labour, their simplicity

belying the dexterity and skill required to

make them.

However, unlike knitting and crochet

these works demonstrate a complexity of

conceptual thinking that lies behind their

creation. The weaving provides a yin and

yang interlocking of threads of love and life,

an intertwining or juxtaposition of male and

female, light and dark. The pieces are not

whimsical but bold, almost sculptural yet

light, and while designed to be worn with

comfort, they make a statement.

Jessica uses recycled materials, old leather

and metal, and strives to keep the form of

each piece minimal so that the patina of age

is still evident. The recycled material already

has a history, so Jessica gives it a new start.

Some of her pieces are elevated by the

wear of their owner, settling in to a new life

separate from the maker.

In collaboration with mentor Warwick

Freeman, she has used horsehair and beads

to create a new range of earrings, bracelets

and neckpieces. Horsehair has a tradition of

use in jewellery, but is usually woven into a

bracelet or placed in a locket as a memorial

to a particular horse.

The pairing of hair and pearls may seem

unusual, but Jessica is again playing with

the almost opposing materials to imbue an

added layer of meaning into her work. The

horsehair, I read, comes from the horse’s

tail and is a long, strong fibre ideal for this

purpose. The strength of that fibre and

its obvious animal source puts it in stark

contrast to the subtle warmth of pearls.

In another of her woven or pleated

neckpieces, pearls are set into the folds,

giving a nod to their traditional presentation

while creating new and edgy work.

Jessica has been invited to show her

work overseas at the Milan Fashion Show,

as well as at exhibitions in Germany and

the Netherlands. The Milan Fashion Show

invitational exhibition Artistar Jewels is

carving out a reputation for showcasing

excellence in contemporary jewellery design,

and featured Jessica’s work just this year. The

show, which features 200 creations selected

for their high artistic relevance and embraces

both tradition and innovation, placed the

Kiwi jeweller in a sophisticated arena of not

only makers, but also marketers.

Jessica lives in and works from a studio in

Queenstown and runs workshops around

the country through which she shares her

expertise with her students. She is happy

working in her studio, meeting the demands

of the galleries that support her and seeing

what the universe might throw at her.

Her jewellery definitely falls into a fine

art category; one where the artist is at one

with her materials and has a mastery of

the skills required to create fully resolved,

original pieces. These pieces are aesthetically

pleasing while also demonstrating that they

are the completion or the evolution of an

idea. The pieces display well in the vitrines of

galleries and museums but take on another

life when worn by their happy recipient.

Sarah, tell us about your background.

My fascination with travel first started when I was

12 years old and received a postcard of Big Ben from

my Aunt. I’ve being working in travel for 15 years

and am now the Owner Operator at House of Travel

High Street Lanes.

It’s lunchtime and you have an hour to

grab a quick bite in Christchurch, where

do you go?

With Madam Woo sharing our building, I’ve had my

fair share of Malaysian delicacies. It is hard to resist

when their honey and soy tossed squid is so divine

– their hawker rolls are hard to say no to as well!

Travellers love South East Asia

– why do you think that is?

A self-confessed foodie and avid traveller, Sarah Crowe from House of Travel’s High Street Lanes

spills the beans on her favourite local dishes and faraway destinations.

Guaranteed warm weather, amazing island

beaches, a vibrant culture and history, cheap

accommodation, fabulous eating options and of

course the endless shopping opportunities. Plus it’s

so much closer than you think.

What about a post-work dinner with the

House of Travel team?

When we celebrate in style, there is no better French

food in town than at St Germain. We are lucky to

have them on our doorstep. The 5-course surprise

menu with wine matches for $85 is a favourite.

Does the food there make you want to

visit France?

Yes. It certainly does. Food is just one of the

drawcards of France. I love booking my clients into

villas in Provence as they are so well priced and it’s

a great way to absorb yourself into the local culture.

There is nothing like going to a local French village

to buy your fresh produce, baguettes and brie, and a

lovely bottle of wine.

What’s the hot destination for 2017?

This year Vietnam has been really popular – and

for good reason too! This country is great for a

beach holiday, as well as a historical and cultural

adventure.

More and more families are also travelling here to

enjoy a value for money holiday that ticks all the

boxes; including a dine in the dark restaurant and a

great theme park in Ho Chi Minh City!

Are there any great travel deals coming

out that we should know about?

SEASONAL WINTER

SKIN RITUALS

Words Clemency Alice

La Prairie Purifying

Cream Cleanser

comprehensive beauty regime is essential

A to maintaining flawless skin during the winter

months. During the crisp, glacial days of winter,

our skin barrier becomes compromised, making

it more susceptible to dryness and sensitivity.

Here are some simple tips to help restore skin

vitality and a healthy, luminous glow.

SUFFICIENT SLEEP is essential since the

skin’s cellular repair activity is at its peak during

rest. Introduce evening ‘wind-down’ rituals to

promote a restorative, deep sleep (herbal teas,

aroma essences, soothing yoga poses).

FACE MASSAGE helps facilitate the draining

of unwanted toxins and increases oxygen flow

to the skin tissue.

WARM COMPRESS the skin with a gentle

aromatic infused cloth. After removing all

make-up and cleansing your skin, fill a bowl with

warm water and add a drop of lavender or blue

chamomile essential oil, then soak a face cloth

in the water and wring out the excess. Hold the

cloth over the face for a slow count of five. To

complete the ritual, massage the skin with three

to five drops of your go-to face oil.

CORRECTLY CLEANSE with a gentle

face cleanser and a delicate, floral toner (I

recommend La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser

and Softening and Balancing Lotion). Correct

cleansing rituals will remove impurities from the

skin and leave it feeling instantly refreshed. This

is a vital step as it preps the skin to efficiently

and effectively absorb serums and moisturisers.

FRESH AIR and brisk walks amongst nature

boost circulation and will cleanse and replenish

your skin from within. Before stepping out, apply

a few drops of your go-to face oil to provide

extra nourishment and protect it from the harsh

elements of wind and extreme temperatures.

DRY BRUSHING helps whisk away dead

skin cells and stimulate lymphatic flow. It is an

invigorating way to begin the day post-exercise

and pre-shower. Simply doing this for a few

minutes a day as part of your morning beauty

ritual can be transformative for your skin, while

also being very meditative and calming.

STAY HYDRATED with mineral-rich spring

water for optimum skin health. Cultivate a

ritual of preparing and drinking organic green

tea, as the high concentration of ‘polyphenols’

it contains will help protect your skin from

cellular damage. Sufferers of rosacea, eczema

and psoriasis will also benefit from drinking

green tea with its anti-inflammatory properties.

Ultimately, any kind of water intake throughout

the day will ensure hydration through reducing

the loss of moisture from the skin.

INTENSIVE MASK treatments are an

essential winter skin ritual for a luminous, radiant

skin. Select an overnight sleep mask to restore

the skin’s barrier function and retain moisture

during the resting phase. (My fav is La Prairie

Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask.)

PROBIOTICS

& PREBIOTICS:

THE ANSWER TO GOOD

GUT AND SKIN HEALTH

Using probiotics to keep your gut healthy has long been

recognised as an effective way to assist good bowel function

and to help control the metabolism. What is less widely known

is that keeping bacteria in balance is just as important for skin

health, writes Dr Iona Weir.


STYLE | wellbeing 59

WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS & PREBIOTICS?

Probiotics are live, good bacteria that occur

naturally in the body, although levels can be

boosted with supplements and particular

foods. Their main benefit is to the gut, as

they aid the digestion process. Prebiotics,

on the other hand, are specialised plant

fibres that do not occur naturally in the

body, and instead make their way into the

digestive system through the food we eat.

Prebiotics nourish and encourage the body’s

production of probiotics, improving the

good-to-bad bacteria ratio and enhancing

their effectiveness.

Every person has their own unique gut

and skin microflora (the balance of good and

bad ba cteria), which is directly inherited from

their mother.

THE BALANCING ACT

Balance of the gut microflora has been

discovered to be central to preventing

allergies, and when out of balance, eczema,

rashes, hives and conditions such as irritable

bowel syndrome and auto-immune disorders

can occur.

The use of probiotic supplements can help

keep the body in balance, as well as eating

foods such as yoghurt, kefir, avocado, miso

soup, pickles, kimchi, kombucha tea and,

thankfully, dark chocolate.

But, after a short time, usually after around

three to four weeks, your body will no

longer benefit from probiotic supplements

as your immune system begins to recognise

them as foreign bacteria. Because prebiotics

support the growth of your own unique

good bacteria probiotics, it’s a good idea to

use the two in combination, then, once your

gut microflora is restored, Trust continue your injectable to take a

You’ll know when the probiotic to an experienced stops

returning. I usually take a prebiotic Medical in tandem

Director

Dr Heather Jefferies

with a probiotic for three weeks, and then

continue using the prebiotic for three

months before topping up my good bacteria

with a probiotic again.

It’s also important to remember probiotic

supplements can die in the capsule, or on

their way through the digestive tract. Always

look for high-quality, high colony forming

unit probiotics. Probiotics that work are

expensive as they have to be specifically

micro-encapsulated (coated) to be

protected from the digestive enzymes and

acid in the stomach, which is also why it’s so

vital you take probiotics after a meal.

FACE VALUE

The skin, much like the gut, has its own

unique microflora. Lack of balance can have

any number of causes, including the use

of too many cleansers and soaps. Instead

of protecting against infection, this overscrubbing

results in damaging your own

natural and unique defences. It’s at this point

that bad bacteria run wild, causing outbreaks

of acne, inflammation, redness or dry and

irritated skin.

Over the years, many products have

claimed to give us clear and beautiful skin,

and have focused on getting rid of bacteria.

In this process all bacteria are destroyed,

including the good stuff, meaning that clear

skin doesn’t last long as bad bacteria quickly

grow back to replace the good.

As well as exfoliating less and resisting

the urge to over-cleanse, it’s important to

use a product that contains a prebiotic and

the peptides from probiotic bacteria. When

used in conjunction, these work to promote

good bacterial growth while inhibiting bad

bacteria. Look for a skincare product centred

on providing a boost of probiotics while

nurturing the existing good bacteria with

prebiotics.

What’s clear is that our gut and skin health

work in synergy. Balance in both is the

answer to beautifully clear and glowing skin.

CHAMPAGNE

ON ICE

A short trip south sees Kate Preece

sipping champagne in snowy surrounds.

The mighty mountain ranges that epitomise

Queenstown give nature the upper hand

in this tourist town. And, as if the views are

not enough, the crisp mountain air is quick to

wipe away any memory of the 55-minute flight

from Christchurch, cementing your arrival in

the adventure capital of the south.

Despite being surrounded by waterproofed

men, women and children, I had no intention

of hitting the snow-laden slopes. In fact, I had

only one destination in mind – the Hilton.

A $20 taxi ride from the airport and I am at

its door, ready to see what happens when a

luxury accommodation chain pairs up with a

Champagne house.

The room in which I am to rest my head is

one of a kind, thanks to a perfect partnership

between The Hilton and Veuve Clicquot. In

Queenstown, this means room 133 has had a

makeover. Renamed La Grande Dame Room

(until the end of August), muted tones of grey

and pink, with textural elements from fur,

velvet and wool, form a luxurious backdrop,

while Jo Malone’s lime, basil and mandarin

scent fills the air. Veuve-yellow highlights are at

every turn, from the flowers and cushions to

a framed LED-lit portrait of Madame Clicquot

– the ‘Grande Dame of Champagne’ herself.

An ice-filled bucket proffers a bottle of the

widowed French woman’s legacy, and a bath

with a water view promises to deliver on the

relaxation front.

My timing to visit the on-site Eforea spa

couldn’t have been better either. With the

annual Clicquot In The Snow festival in August,

there are opportunities at every turn to ‘have

champagne with that’, with spa treatments

being no exception.

An oasis of calm and professionalism, the spa

offers all the bells and whistles, from robes and

slippers to the use of a 25-metre swimming

pool, sauna and a post-treatment lounge.

Until September 30, the Veuve Clicquot Flute

& Facial is a 60-minute treatment customised to

target your skin’s needs, and finished with a flute

of Madame Clicquot’s finest. My Finnish beauty

therapist soon had me in a state of zen, the

world’s worries a million miles away, with not

a sound from the outside world, nor a note of

Enya to be heard. Bliss.

Dinner matched with Veuve Clicquot seemed

the only way to follow such an experience.

One of five Kawarau Village eateries,

Wakatipu Grill’s special wine-matched menu

also challenges the chef to base the threecourse

dinner around the ingredient of the

month – pumpkin for August. During my visit,

however, it was ‘pear’, with the finest dish being

prawn ravioli, with sweet and sour nashi pear,

fennel, pancetta and toasted buckwheat. The

2008 vintage served alongside it was also the

standout.

While Veuve doesn’t feature on the

breakfast menu, nearly everything else does.

Whether craving a croissant, eggs Benedict, or

a curry, the buffet will have you sated.

Sitting in Wakatipu Grill’s observatory-style

area, the sun streaming in as mist rolls gently

across the serene lake, I willed the clock to

slow its pace. The waterproofed ones were

fuelling up for another day of adrenaline and

hot chocolate, while all I could think about

was one more hour in the spa. Or, at the very

least, more time on the balcony of La Grande

Dame Room, sipping Veuve in the shadow of

the mountains.

FINANCIAL

HABITS

OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE

When you analyse the

habits of those considered

financially successful,

you start to see trends in

their everyday behaviour,

|Julian Lingard says.

THEY KEEP LEARNING

Once they’ve identified areas in which they want

to gain wealth, they start educating themselves in

those fields.

Invest in your own knowledge by reading the

relevant books, following the right bloggers and

spokespeople, and keeping up to date with

policy changes in the news. A lot of websites

in New Zealand even send daily or weekly

updates to your mailbox. There are tons of

resources out there (although it’s important

to first check their credibility), which will help

educate your financial decisions.

Resources such as goodreturns.co.nz or

investment.co.nz are good places to start, or, of

course, just ask your advisor for updates – we

live and breathe this stuff every day. Whatever

source you pick, stick to it – everyone has an

opinion and too much conflicting information

from multiple sources can be confusing,

overwhelming and prohibit action.

THEY ASK FOR WHAT THEY WANT

Most people realise that in order to create wealth

initially, their income needs to increase.

By creating more disposable income, you can

use it to generate wealth. Always look for how

you can add further value in the job you do by

seeking out training opportunities to widen your

skill set and increase your income.

What ‘value’ means can be different for every

company, but by building strong relationships

with your managers and the company’s

leadership you can begin to understand your

employer’s strategic goals and the role you play

within achieving them.

Asking for what you want takes confidence

and belief in your own value. Allow the

experience of mentors, in both an official and

unofficial capacity, to guide you on what to ask

for and when. It’s all part of the old adage – if

you don’t ask, you don’t get.


STYLE | finance 65

THEY GET ONTO THE PROPERTY LADDER EARLY

Buying a house as early as possible can open up the opportunity for other

investments.

By paying off your mortgage as quickly as you can, you can decrease

your interest costs and keep more money in your own pocket.

Once you reach particular loan-to-value ratios, you have the ability

to leverage other investments off your property, and use money you

formerly spent on mortgage repayments on potential income sources

like managed funds.

Property as an investment is an appreciating asset; it will build your

net wealth and create its own equity, too. It’s common to live within

your means, but by allocating your spend to a mortgage, rather than

rent or discretionary spending, you are building wealth.

THEY SEEK OUT PASSIVE INCOME OPTIONS

Passive income is the money received for little effort or personal time from

investments such as rental properties and shares.

If you’re looking at long-term passive income, rental properties could

be a good option as you’ll often have tenants paying off the mortgage.

However, once the mortgage payments are serviced, there may be

little tangible income left over.

Receiving regular lump-sum dividend payments from shares in a

company might be a better option for short-term passive income.

But it’s important, before investing, that you know what the pay-out

schedule is. For this kind of investment you also need a lump sum to

invest and the patience to wait for investment growth.

Don’t forget the option of setting up your own business, which plays

to your expertise, but can generate income based on minimal input

from you if you have someone else running the operation day to day.

Alternatively, an option can be to invest or partner in a business.

THEY RUN THEIR PERSONAL FINANCES LIKE A BUSINESS

Know the importance of budgeting and cashflow.

A lot of people spend their money ad hoc, so are surprised when the

$100 a week they think they allow for discretionary spending (e.g.

eating out) is actually closer to $200-$300. A clear budget helps keep

you on top of your spending and makes you aware how much you

actually have left over to invest. It also allows you to build accurate

financial goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and

time-based (SMART).

Successful businesses know where they are financially at all times –

personal finances should be no different.

THEY SPEND AND BORROW SMARTLY

Spend the right way and stick to budget.

Ideally, all spending should be done with cash that you have and

not bought on credit or hire purchase as you’ll be subject to higher

interest rates.

Try not to borrow money for things that decrease in value. If you

do need to borrow money, make your mortgage work for you. Don’t

make the mistake of setting the loan up within the mortgage as you’ll

end up paying interest on the item over the lifetime of the mortgage.

Always borrow to the side of the mortgage – just using the house as

collateral is smart as the bank has the security of the property and so is

likely to offer the loan at a lower interest rate.

THEY INVEST

Options for generating wealth are spread over multiple platforms.

For retirement alone, we should be saving around 10-15 per cent of

our annual income. If we save eight per cent in our KiwiSaver, five per

cent should be invested through managed funds, which you can still

have easy access to.

This money will accumulate over time and can be used to help pay

off the mortgage or fund a retirement lifestyle.

THEY INSURE

The time, effort and money invested into organising finances and growing

wealth are protected by the right insurance.

What insurance you need depends on your personal situation, but life

insurance and income protection are key introductory insurances.

Life insurance pays a lump sum to your family and dependents upon

your passing to ensure your debt and funeral costs are covered –

people often choose this to take care of their family when they’re gone

and help them maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed. In

some cases, life insurance also pays out when you are diagnosed with a

terminal illness.

Income insurance protects what many say is a person’s greatest

asset – the ability to earn an income. This protection comes in the

form of ongoing incremental payments that cover loss of income while

you cannot work due to illness, and takes away the stress and worry

for you and your family at a time when the focus is on recovery. It

generally pays out for bills and day-to-day spending.

THEY SEEK ADVICE

Successful people leverage the knowledge and advice of professionals

in all areas.

For your money matters, financial advisors are best placed as it’s

their job to know what’s going on and stay up to date. Many advisors

work for their clients for free, too, as they are paid by the suppliers.

An advisor will help you create a tailored financial plan based on

your goals, objectives and risk tolerance. Every individual requires

a unique plan, which will develop throughout your lifetime as your

circumstances, priorities and goals change.

A clear budget helps keep you on top

of your spending...

THE BEST

OF 86

Motoring writer Ross Kiddie takes the sporty GT86 coupe for a

high-country blast.

THE SPECS

PRICE: Toyota 86GT, $51,986

DIMENSIONS: Length, 4240mm;

width, 1775mm; height, 1285mm

CONFIGURATION: Four-cylinder

(boxer), rear-wheel-drive, 1998cc,

152kW, 212Nm, six-speed manual

PERFORMANCE: 0-100km/h, 7.4sec

FUEL USAGE: 8.4l/100km

was a little disappointed when Subaru

I withdrew their sporty two-door coupe –

the BRZ – from New Zealand’s market.

While the car lives on here in Toyota’s 86,

it was good to have that point of difference in

the marketplace, and considering that Subaru

engineered the BRZ/86, I felt it was right for

consumers to have a choice.

Nevertheless, Toyota is marketing the 86

with the recognition it deserves, and has

just given the stylish wee sports car a fairly

extensive upgrade.

Anyone will tell you I’m wildly enthusiastic

about the 86, it is a cool piece of kit and in its

latest iteration it is even more appealing. As you

would expect, it is further refined cosmetically,

and if performance is a key buying ingredient,

you’ll be pleased to find that it offers more

power – albeit in manual form only.

While I know most 86s sold here in New

Zealand will be autos, the market for manual

cars still exists, and this is one that I would

choose to buy in manual form as it’s such a

delight. The gearshift has short movement up

and down and across the gate, it moves with

direct action and can be moved as quickly

as the driver can manipulate. Clutch action

is also short but progressive, meaning that in

combination it offers a performance car feel

which will appeal to buyers. Also, the engine

develops so much natural torque that it can

be driven in tall gears at low speeds; that being

the case it’s not a matter of a manual shift

being a burden.

Toyota rate the horizontally opposed, fourcylinder

engine at 152kW and 212Nm (up

5kW and 7Nm). There’s no secret Subaru

supply the quad-camshaft unit, so it carries all

of the boxer engine characteristics that have

made that company so popular as an engine

builder.

Coupled with the six-speed transmission,

there is a solid flow of energy through the rev

band. It also comes with an audible howl, just

to lure the driver.

In terms of performance, the 86 can’t be

described as quick. It is capable of a 7.4sec

standstill to 100km/h time, but in sports car

terms that isn’t lightning speed. However,

what the 86 does do well is put the power to

ground in a fashion that entertains the driver.

Short-wheelbase, rear-wheel-drive cars have

unique handling characteristics, and while this

model offers a natural handling sensation,

the power outputs mean there is a definite

tendency for grip to be challenged. And therein

lies a key ingredient as to the way the 86 is set

up; it has a stepped traction control system,

and the driver can select settings whereby

oversteer can be forced, although this is only

ever encouraged on track.

Nevertheless, there is a constant feeling

when cornering hard that the rear will be a bit

tail-happy and when it does, TCS will rein it in,

but the point remains that the 86 is playful and

will constantly entertain the driver.

I took the test car through a series of tight

and twisty road sections and enjoyed its

balance and steerage. It has handling ability akin

to its concept, it is precise up front and the feel

from the rear is constantly involving.

In GT form the 86 rides on tyres an inch


STYLE | motoring 67

bigger in diameter than the standard car, but

even then the 215/45 x 17in Michelin rubber

struggles under power, it is delightful and part

of what makes the 86 so special. The brakes,

too, are sharp, the entire handling package is

undoubtedly special.

As mentioned, the 86 for 2017 gets extra kit

by way of the spec, and the cockpit has been

freshened with quality trim elements creating

a sporty environment that is also one of true

sports car heritage.

On the outside, the 86 has also had a bit of

a tidy up – notably the GT gets a functional

spoiler which is claimed to help high-speed

stability.

The 86 also returns realistic fuel usage

figures – Toyota claims an 8.4l/100km (34mpg)

combined cycle average.

If you have a young family, the 86 isn’t totally

selfish, it is effectively a 2+2 but you can seat

those small of stature in the rear.

Not only do I relate well to the 86 in roadgoing

form, I’m also kept entertained throughout

the summer series of motorsport and the 86

series has provided some close and exciting

racing. This is an area in which Toyota excels, and

its involvement in New Zealand motorsport is

long-standing and one which I hope continues.

Until that series restarts late in the year, I’ll

just have to relive the memory of my latest

86 drive, as it was certainly one of the most

enjoyable for the year so far.

NOSTALGIA WITH

A MODERN TWIST

With more than 30 types

of loose-leaf tea, the Majestic Tea

Bar, Espresso & Chocolate is the

latest destination for

a quality cuppa.

Words Christine de Felice

A

sense of the city’s special history and legacy

has returned to Christchurch with the

opening of the Majestic Tea Bar, Espresso &

Chocolate in Barrington.

The driving force behind the project, Chris

Cox, is a strong believer in the importance of

retaining the connection with our past, much

of which he says has been lost both because of

the earthquakes, and more generally the pace

of modern life.

Customers can enjoy the comforting

ambience of nostalgia blended with a fresh,

modern approach at Majestic Tea Bar, Chris

says. As the name suggests, tea is the main

focus, but there certainly is a lot more on

offer, with a menu that encompasses coffee,

chocolate, cold drinks and a wide selection of

cabinet and menu food available, prepared by

their chefs in the kitchen.

Now in his 30s, Chris has been involved in

the franchise food industry since his early 20s,

both here and in Auckland, and has always had

a passion for food and people.

“I saw Majestic as an opportunity to express

myself and bring new things to an industry that’s

become typecast. I want to put more focus on

customer service and the customer experience.

“Majestic has a community and family focus.

I see it as a place where people can come and

catch up over a drink, the way our grandparents

used to do, but also a place for all ages to enjoy.”

With a keen eye for detail and opportunity,

Chris identified that tea was enjoying a huge

resurgence worldwide and decided to make

that the focus of the new business. The concept

for Majestic has been carefully developed

over the last two years, during which he did

extensive research here and overseas, and also

talked to family and friends about what they

would like and expect from the new cafe.

The fit-out has a vintage feel but it is modern,

fresh and embodies a colour scheme designed

to appeal to both men and women.

“I didn’t want that dark, industrial feel that

so many cafes have now. I wanted it to be

different. The plants represent the Palm Court

era and the aprons the staff wear have bibs like

the aprons our grandmothers wore.”

As a specialty tea store, Majestic offers more

than 30 different teas of all varieties, with others

to be added as time goes on. Only loose-leaf

tea is served, and in cast-iron teapots – a nod

to tea’s Chinese origins. Coffee lovers are

catered for with the usual selection of coffees,

plus there are chilled juices and soft drinks.

Customers can choose food from the cabinet,

or from the full kitchen menu, which will evolve

and change with the seasons.

“Our head chef, Mark, is a local. He grew

up in this area and has 15 years’ experience

around New Zealand. All our staff have at least

five years’ experience in the industry.”

Chris says he chose Barrington as the

location for Majestic as it has more of a

boutique, family feel to it than the larger

suburban malls around the city. There are also

a lot of owner/operated businesses rather than

chain stores, so business owners are more

invested in the local community, he says.

The Christchurch Majestic Tea Bar, Espresso

& Chocolate is the third in what he hopes will

become a nationwide brand. The other two

are in Auckland and Palmerston North.

“I see it as a national brand in the making

but I don’t want it to be everywhere. It needs

to stay special and we will continue to develop

it, so the novelty won’t wear off with our

customers.

“While we are franchising we need to be

very careful about who we allow to take on

this business. They need to have a strong

customer focus, determined to succeed but

above all else, love that brand for its origins.”

With tea being the world’s second-most

consumed beverage behind water, the future

of the Majestic Tea Bar, Espresso & Chocolate

brand looks promising – with Barrington a good

start for Christchurch.

Words Vanessa Ortynsky

A TASTE OF AKARUA

Akarua, situated in beautiful Central

Otago, has a reputation for producing

world-class pinot noir. The enticingly

fragrant Pinot Noir 2015 laces sweet

spice, dark cherry and plum alongside

thyme, dried herbs and spicy oak.

HONG KONG STREET EATS

New to Victoria Street, Sister Kong is Christchurch’s

very first bao house. Taking inspiration from the

authentic baijiu houses of Hong Kong to re-invent

bao burgers with unique flavours like saffron and chilli,

Sister Kong is giving notable Hong Kong eateries like

Little Bao a run for their money.

A NEW CROWNE

Crowne Plaza has officially opened its doors, providing

visitors and Christchurch locals with a handful of new

culinary options. Start the day at Café 1851, which

serves up Mojo coffee in a Scandinavian-style interior

before trying a French martini at Social Wine Bar, and

settling in for dinner at The Market Place.


CHARCOAL IS THE NEW BLACK

Activated charcoal was originally sold in organic stores for its

health benefits, mainly to cleanse the system. It’s now served

in numerous varieties, from cold-press juices to tarts. One

of our favourite cafés, Uncommon, even offers a buttermilkfried

chicken burger, which is wedged between an activated

charcoal and coconut bun. We can’t get enough of the stuff,

which is also said to miraculously cure hangovers.

UNCOMMON

KNOWLEDGE

For a relaxed atmosphere and

exceptional flavours, look no

further than Uncommon, the

brightest and most exciting

addition to Christchurch’s bold

new café scene.

Words Vanessa Ortynsky

Inspired by their time spent living in

Melbourne, Kiwi couple Natasha Rooney and

Scott O’Driscoll returned to Christchurch to

open Uncommon. The minimalist café is light,

airy, and filled with plenty of greenery. It also

serves up Christchurch’s best brunch.

Uncommon offers an unrivalled dining

experience regardless of when you visit, and

always offers a unique twist on café classics.

I often find myself stopping by for a morning

coffee made with beans from the neighbouring

C4 or enjoying a leisurely weekend breakfast of

beautifully-plated buttermilk pancakes. It’s never

easy deciding on a dish at Uncommon as every

menu item is made with high quality, locally

sourced produce. Fortunately, their fantastic

breakfast board offers the best of both worlds –

I urge you to try it next time you’re in.

On this particular visit, we arrive in time for

lunch, as I’m eager to try their fried chicken

burger. Served on an activated charcoal and

coconut bun, the buttermilk-fried chicken is

both crispy and tender. It comes with paprikasprinkled

chips and a strawberry milkshake,

making it the perfect lunchtime treat. The pork

belly banh mi is another crowd-pleaser, further

demonstrating Scott O’Driscoll’s culinary range.

Uncommon offers fine-dining quality food in a

relaxed environment.

Presentation is key at Uncommon, where

every dish is a work of art. Watch as plates

emerge from the open-plan kitchen and marvel

at the seamlessness of the whole operation.

Whether you find yourself at Uncommon for

breakfast, lunch or even a coffee, the attention to

detail, service and overall experience are nothing

short of exceptional. It is a standout café and a

real asset to the central city.

he platoon of maneki-neko, suspended rank and file upon

the wall, gazed down, their hypnotic beckoning paw bidding

guests to enter Sister Kong. The door situated at the end of the

lane, running off elegant Victoria Street, opened into a welcoming

establishment of exotic hospitality. Brocade-clad dancers moved

gently, each fan flutter as gentle as a dove’s wing, capturing the

eye, whilst trays of food seduced the palate. Small whirlpools of

conversation eddied about the room, connecting to form a joyous

hubbub into which all were drawn, until that old party-pooper

named closing time, rang down the curtain on the evening.

GEORGE HOTEL 30TH BIRTHDAY

Sophie Pascoe, Tom Casey

Three decades of hospitality in Christchurch were celebrated recently as The

George Hotel reached a grand milestone. The 30th anniversary could not

pass without bringing together a company of those who had, over the years,

enjoyed a close association with the elegant establishment. It came to pass then,

that they gathered to dine, wine and reminisce in the fellowship of friends, both

old and new. By evening’s end, all the elements had combined to make this little

piece of history, an occasion to remember.

HEAD OVER HEELS OPENING

Shoes, marvellous shoes danced across the view of guests at the grand

opening of Head Over Heels, weaving a magical path leading to a trove of

temptations to tantalise the feet. Outside, the misery of winter inflicted brutal

mockery upon High Street, savage winds slicing like invisible razorblades into

forlorn pedestrians, in contrast to the merriment within. Joyous noise rose to a

deafening pitch as pair after pair were tried on. I dare say that they will pop up

at some elegant affaires in the spring and summer, the seasons of cup days and

garden parties.

WHAT

NOT

TO DO IN A

LUXURY

SPA

When staying at a luxury lodge, make

use of the facilities – but do behave.

Words Victoria Tait

1. TREATMENT ROOMS

Paper knickers are a spa treatment essential. If you haven’t used

them before, take a moment to look at the configuration first...

Be assured, there’s a front and a back. Remember these are for

treatments only – some items should never be shown in public

and this is one of them.

2. GETTING FRISKY

If you are visiting as a couple, we think it’s lovely that you’d like

to enjoy a relaxing massage together, however, remember, your

room is just down the hall... so pick up your paper knickers and

off you go.

3. BOOZE

It’s never a good idea to overindulge before a massage or facial.

It might seem like a good idea at the time but the reality is you’ll

sleep through it, wake up with one hell of a hangover and pay a

large fee for something you totally missed.

4. DRESS CODE

Do your research before you derobe. In a German or Austrian

spa it’s bad manners to wears clothes, yet in a New Zealand spa

we’re far too conservative to go for the birthday suit.

5. IN THE POOL AREA

This is a fact: striking up a conversation with someone in the hot

tub, steam room or sauna looks like you’re trying to pick them

up. Don’t be naïve, just be quiet.
