H

ello 2019, it’s nice to meet you. We’ve heard good

things about you and hope you follow through on your

promises to be even better than your predecessor.

The start of a new year sees many in full holiday mode

– the kids running wild, free from the structure of school,

and week-long getaways or day trips are the best move for

summer survival. It’s a time to reset, recharge and be resolute

that our relationship with 2019 will be mutually beneficial.

We expect this issue to find many of you on the beach, so

that’s where we’ve sent Style. A huge hello to those enjoying

the sun in Nelson, Mapua and Picton – be you new readers

or holidaymakers, we hope you enjoy this burst of summer

Style designed to get you on track for a great year.

As you recline in that deckchair, make sure to see Ella

James’ tips for surviving the season (page 18). She highlights

destinations to visit, podcasts for roadies and books you’ll

lose yourself in – the Style team has certainly taken note!

Are you looking to improve your relationship with food

this year? Gaynor Stanley has taken a long, hard look at

what high-fat, low-carb options like the Keto Diet offer

and underwent a three-day juice cleanse to boot. Read her

findings, cold-pressed juice in hand, from page 28.

Happy New Year to you and yours. And as for you, 2019,

I have a feeling you and I will get on.

EAT

There are a few newbies to the Christchurch food scene

that should be on your ‘to-try’ list. Italian bistro Earl,

found on Rauora Park (128 Lichfield Street), promises to

keep things simple, but always a cut above. If the luck of

the Irish is what you’re after, head to The Little Fiddle

on The Terrace, where you’ll find pub fare with a side of

true-to-form Irish culture.

Casamassima Italian Fare (48 Salisbury Street) recently

became one of the first three Italian restaurants in New

Zealand to be honoured by the Italian government in

recognition of its Italian food and products. Alongside

Non Solo Pizza (Auckland) and La Bella Italia

(Wellington), it now bears the prestigious Q plaque for

its authenticity.

SHOP

New year, new denim? Dual has relaunched in

Christchurch’s central city, slipping in beside wine bar

Not Without You (181 High Street). Expect the same

design-focused, Kiwi-made denim options they’ve

been known for since the 1990s. Newcomer Indigo &

Provisions (Boys’ High building, the Arts Centre) sources

international brands to bring you specialist denim and

something to go on top. The team at Death by Denim

are dedicated to ensuring you get the right fit – whether

you’re shopping at Cashel or Merivale malls.

The ultimate Kiwi shoe is the jandal, right? Well, Allbirds

has a new option to try on for size – with soles made

from renewable sugarcane. Combined with the world’s

first carbon-negative green ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA),

these soles offer a sweet alternative.

Kamana Lakehouse

STAY

Down south, Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel has recently

opened three new luxury junior suites in its Qualmark fivestar

Boutique & Lodge-graded premise. Not to be outdone,

Eichardt’s Private Hotel was awarded Australia & Oceania

Luxury Ski Resort at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018,

and its sister property, The Spire, was dubbed New Zealand’s

top Luxury Small Hotel. Southern hospitality at its best!

High above Lake Wakatipu, Kamana Lakehouse has recently

opened its doors. Taking the place of Aspen Hotel (139

Fernhill Road), the hotel has had a multi-million-dollar reno

and rebranding and includes Nest Kitchen and Bar, which

serves Mediterranean fare alongside its stunning views.

INDULGE

For a touch of class and a dollop of art deco, you’ll want

to sip your next cocktail at the Ivory Bar (93 Ivory Street).

What was Rangiora’s Northern A&P building has had a

$2-million makeover that will bring out the Gatsby in you.

Bird & Knoll, with wildlife photographer and conservationist

Deon De Villiers, has delivered something to truly satisfy your

wild side. Cashmere-blend scarves feature five vulnerable

species and form the Wild collection, purchases from which

support the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Will you help save

the lion, leopard, giraffe, zebra or elephant? birdandknoll.com

EXPERIENCE

If you’re looking to do something a little special, get a group

of four to 12 friends together and opt for the Royal Box

Experience at the Isaac Theatre Royal. Indulge in an antipasto

platter and drink ahead of your selected show (Nigella

Lawson on January 25, perhaps?), and another drink and ice

cream at interval. It’s like having your cake and eating it too.

The Great Kiwi Beer Festival returns on January 26, with

more than 40 craft brewers and 35 street food vendors

making themselves at home in Hagley Park. With the likes of

Salmonella Dub and Stellar on the runsheet, go VIP ($187)

for full stage appreciation – and all the food, beer and cider

you can handle.

STYLE’S SUMMER

SURVIVAL GUIDE

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

The run-up to Christmas is a tinsel-clad whirlwind of parties, festive food, champagne and

yet more festive food. Boxing Day onwards can often be somewhat of an anti-climax,

resulting in days spent on the sofa, scraping the barrel (of cookies and chocolates).

However, if you can peel yourself away from watching your favourite Christmas

movies on loop, there’s an abundance of incredible days out to be had just a stone’s

throw away, and a little preparation will make them all the more enjoyable.

Words Ella James


STYLE | special feature 19

– THE TRIPS –

Rounding up the never-ending list of incredible locations that are on our doorstep is a near

impossible task, but we’ve tried our best. Here are our top four locations for the season.

1.

Corsair Bay, Lyttelton

When we say a stone’s throw away,

we really do mean it. Between swimming

out to the raft, relaxing on the grass and

enjoying a picnic, the day will pass all too

soon. At Corsair Bay, shade is hard to

come across, so take heed.

Devil’s Punchbowl Falls,

Arthur’s Pass

Devil’s Punchbowl Falls is one of the

gems of Arthur’s Pass National Park,

offering a change in the standard

summer itinerary of beaches and lakes.

The sound and view of the waterfall is

bound to impress, and the cold, misty

spray is a welcome drenching on a

hot day. Walking the track requires a

moderate level of fitness and will take

approximately one hour, but a café not

far from the car park serves up some

well-deserved refreshments.

3.

Omarama Hot Tubs

When it’s hot out there, there’s

nothing quite like cooling off in a

private tub of fresh mountain water

with your nearest and dearest.

The tubs’ backdrop is dramatic yet

simultaneously calming, commanding

guests to relax. Sometimes the sun

just doesn’t play ball, but moody

weather can make this experience

all the more magical – plus you can

turn up the heat in the tub.

4.

Godley Head Track, Sumner

Godley Head remains capable of leaving us

speechless time and time again.

The wild coastline, secluded baches and military history will

excite and inspire, thus distracting from

the lengthy walk itself. Even your dogs can enjoy this incredible

track, just be sure to keep them on their leads.

– THE READING –

It just wouldn’t be summer

without a book. They aren’t only

the perfect accompaniment for

a day on the beach; they’re also a

fabulous wet weather contingency

plan for when you just can’t stand

the thought of watching any more

daytime television.

For the inspiring chef: Chrissy

Teigen certainly knows how to cook

up a storm. Her second cookbook,

Cravings – Hungry for more, serves up

mouthwatering recipes that will have

you salivating where you stand. We

just wish Teigen and her husband,

John Legend, could join us.

For jerking tears: The Friend by

Sigrid Nunez tackles the topic of grief

in a raw, yet heart-warming manner.

The story of a woman’s unique and

imperative bond with a Great Dane

during a period of grieving delivers

the reader a combination of sadness,

joy and hope.

For those seeking catharsis: Author

Olivia Laing is back, with her first

fictional read. Crudo is a novel set in

the present day. The story is based

around Kathy, a 40-year-old woman

who is soon to be wed. A backdrop

of Brexit, climate change, the migrant

crisis and the Trump residency make

for a whirlwind narrative that we can

at least partially relate to.

– THE PODCASTS –

Podcasts are a great way to avoid conversation during those

endless summer car rides. They’re capable of drowning out the

sound of over-tired children, argumentative other halves and

irate motorists, so turn them up loud. Download your podcasts

when you have wi-fi. You’ll need your data for more pressing

matters, like using Google Maps to find your way home.

For real-life drama: At times, Caliphate is almost unbearable

to listen to, but it’s impossible to press pause. Reporter Rukmini

Callimachi educates and shocks in equal measure on the topic

of terrorism.

For fashion addicts: Dressed: The History of Fashion will deliver

your fashion fix. This podcast is an easy listen that will have you

clued up on fashion through the ages; from the Egyptians, to the

Flapper era, up until the present day.

For a break from it all: Sometimes, we just need to listen to

something a little light-hearted, and This is love is just the podcast

for the job. International politics, violence and drama simply

aren’t welcome here. This podcast is all about love.


STYLE | special feature 21

– THE ESSENTIALS –

Destination, check. Books and podcasts, check. You’re almost prepared for

your best summer yet; just don’t forget to pack these essentials.

Whether you’re spending the day at the beach or tackling a walking

trail, you’re bound to be taking photos a plenty. So don’t even think

about leaving home without a portable phone charger. On the

subject of mobile phones, consider packing a water-resistant phone

pouch. Sea selfies are yours for the taking.

Beachy summer hair doesn’t come as easily as we’d like, but a few

spritzes of salt spray can certainly accelerate the tousling process.

We love Rockaway Salt Spray, available at Ballantynes. Apply yours

before you leave the house and voilà, surfer girl hair without even

getting your feet wet. Now we’re talking.

Just how exactly do you intend to listen to your summer playlist or

one of the above podcasts? A portable sand and waterproof speaker

is an absolute lifesaver. Purchase one with a strap that you can tie to

your backpack such as the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom, from Noel

Leeming, and your summer soundtrack will be in earshot for every

beach, trekking and camping excursion.

Last but absolutely not least, sun protection. Sunscreen, SPF lip

balm, summer hats and cover-ups should always be within arm’s

reach. As if we had to remind you?

DIARY OF A

BACH ROOKIE

Ella James spent 24 hours in the Marlborough Sounds, discovering

a few key tips to surviving a Kiwi summer along the way.

Having been tasked with writing a summer guide to

New Zealand’s South Island, I became painfully aware

that perhaps I haven’t explored my incredible surroundings

almost nearly enough. So, my boyfriend and I packed the

car, puppy and all, and headed for a night away in the

Marlborough Sounds.

To get to the bach in Blackwood Bay, we took the

water taxi from Picton. The sea was calm; the dog was not.

Luckily, it wasn’t long before we jumped onto the property’s

private jetty. We were left speechless by a wonderful bach

surrounded by serene waters that were alive with starfish,

rays and schools of fish. We filled the fridge with beers and

jumped into the sea to cool off. We were utterly secluded,

and it was paradise.

Later on, my boyfriend, the puppy and I dried off at the end

of the jetty. The only thing missing was a cold beer. I ran along

the crooked wooden jetty to the bach, a mirage of icy beers

ahead. And a mirage it was. As per most holiday rentals, the

last tenants had unplugged the fridge. Luke warm beers it was.

Back on the jetty, tepid beer in hand, the distant humming

of a speedboat grew louder. “Do you pair like mussels?” we

soon heard. A stocky male, arms dense with tattoos, grabbed

on to the jetty with one hand, offered a bucket of gargantuan

mussels in the other. For some time, the male told magical

tales of the waters that surrounded us, interrupted only by

the occasional insults that he spat out regarding the water

taxi companies and their absurd prices. As conversation grew

drier than our beer supply, the man stated, “The name’s

Tussock.” Then he was gone, sailing into the distance leaving

only a rather intimidating bucket of green lipped mussels.

The sun was beating down on the jetty unremorsefully,

so we decided to walk up to the waterfall to cool off. The

waterfall was supposedly a minute’s walk from the bach.

Thirty minutes had passed without seeing so much as a trickle

of water. The song Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls now seemed

all too relevant. By dinnertime the remaining beers were cold

and we feasted heartily on the colossal mussels. The sunset

was incredible and perfectly punctuated a perfect summer’s

day. Shades of pink grew more and more dramatic until

complete darkness and calm.

We rose early on Sunday morning to the sounds of the

ocean and the wildlife. All was gloriously peaceful, until the

puppy spotted her first weka.

All too soon the water taxi arrived. One night in this

haven simply wasn’t enough. Just a single night away from

civilisation, with limited phone signal had done the absolute

world of good. We felt refreshed, aligned and recharged.

As we approached Picton on the boat, I pictured myself

looking radiant and sun-kissed with tousled hair blowing in the

wind. The reality? Long, matted hair with a burnt nose and

shoulders. (How to spot a bach rookie.)

Car loaded, we started the journey back to Christchurch.

Just minutes in, it became apparent that the car wasn’t running

so smoothly. The culprit? A ginormous screw in the front right

tyre. The solution was simple, just switch the punctured tyre

with the spare tyre in the boot, right? My boyfriend looked

solemn, knowing all too well he hadn’t the faintest idea

how to change a tyre. Dog barking, boyfriend swearing, we

rolled to the nearest garage where an old, leathery mechanic

resolved the issue in the blink of an eye. Life was gloriously

easy at the car-free bach, I thought to myself.

Back on the road, we set our sights for Christchurch.

“Ah, I’ve got some pretty hectic stomach cramps,” my

boyfriend whimpered. Surely not the mussels?

AT THE PEAK

OF POLO

There’s one team that has a vested interest in taking home the

Hagley Park Polo Cup this month. Style gets to know the Wood family,

who are not only playing as a tournament team for the first time in 10 years

but one of them is responsible for the event itself.

Words Kate Preece Photography Charlie Rose Creative


STYLE | event 25

It was Winston Churchill who once said: “A polo

handicap is a passport to the world” and he was

on the mark when it comes to the Wood family.

For 30 years, Roddy and Diedre Wood led

a double life. Roddy’s professional polo career

meant they spent half the year in Britain – where

Roddy played for and later managed the Guards

Polo Club in Windsor, then returned home for a

Kiwi summer. During this time, the couple raised

three boys, who are now men forging their own

careers as internationally recognised polo players.

Yet, despite sharing a passion for the sport

of kings, Roddy (62), Charlie (30), Jimmy (27)

and Henry (23), have only played twice as a

tournament team – the last time being 10 years

ago. At the second Armstrong Prestige Hagley

Park Polo on the 27th of this month, however,

they’ll clock up No 3.

“It’s pretty special to be playing together as a

family,” says Roddy, recalling the first chukka with

his sons, when Henry was just nine. “Polo is a

very unique sport in the way that it allows all

ages and varying abilities to play together at a

competitive level.”

Are we likely to see any family dynamics spill

out on the polo field? “We try to keep the arguing

to a minimum,” says Roddy, quick to describe

the family as very close. “We’re hugely lucky. We

really do support and encourage one another

and want each of us to be at our best. It’s a team

game after all.”

As well as being on one of the four teams

competing for the Hagley Park Polo Cup, Jimmy’s

the mastermind behind the event’s conception

and ongoing organisation.

“It’s hugely special to organise a polo

tournament on this scale, right in the heart of our

city,” he says.

“My girlfriend, Sophie, now travels with me

between the UK and New Zealand and together

we want to build this event year-on-year, making it

the social and sporting event of the South Island.

“We are attracting players from all over the

world, and this is really exciting.”


26 STYLE | event

A day in the life

This second generation of polo players lead a similar

jetsetting lifestyle to their father. Individually, they have

played in destinations that include Iran, Canada, Australia,

the USA, Thailand, China, Germany, and, of course, the UK.

When in New Zealand, however, the brothers live within

a stone’s throw of the family field in Sefton, which makes

keeping on top of their training all the more easy.

Consistency is key for both the players and the horses

– as you would expect from any professional athletes and

their counterparts. A dedicated team of family members,

as well as personal trainers and physiotherapists when

necessary, travel alongside the players to ensure they can be

all that they can be. Whether it’s keeping the players well

fed, or making sure they’re in the right frame of mind, this

group provides a vital piece of the puzzle that keeps these

players at the top of their game. The horses have grooms to

cater to their day-to-day requirements.

With well over 100 horses between them, Waireka is a

busy farm. Each horse is exercised in the morning by the

grooms and then, after lunch, the brothers will school each

pony individually for about 20 minutes. Every weekend there

will be a tournament, consisting of two to three games, with

whichever ponies are most suitable getting a run.

If there is any downtime, the brothers will opt for a swim

or round of golf to take their minds off the pressures of

professional polo.

Champagne, Oysters & Polo

In its second year, the Armstrong Prestige Hagley Park

Polo is mixing things up with the introducton of the R18

Champagne Lawn, to which a general admission ticket

gives you access.

“Last year we invited everyone to rock up with a picnic

and we love that we were able to do that in our first

year. The crowds gave us goosebumps,” says Jimmy. “We

hope they will all return to buy a ticket and enjoy the

Champagne Lawn.”

“It’s something new and unexpected in Christchurch.

You don’t need to play or even ride a horse to enjoy the

day – it’s about being with friends and enjoying the beautiful

surroundings. A bit of cheering wouldn’t go amiss as

– the players love it!”


STYLE | event 27

What you need to know

1. There will be five chukkas in the game, with each

chukka lasting seven minutes.

2. The players will change onto fresh horses at the

end of each chukka, as well as often throughout.

3. Goals change every time a team scores. This can be

confusing for spectators, but it keeps the game fair

as any slight gradient on the ground, or even the

wind direction, can be seen as an advantage.

4. Players will bring up to 12 horses each to one game.

Player to watch

NAME: Jack Richardson (26 years old)

HANDICAP: 7 Goal

COUNTRY: UK

Flying in from England, especially for this

tournament, Jack has played in both the Gold

Cup and The Queens Cup in the UK, two of

the most prestigious tournaments in the world.

Jack is also a regular feature on the England

Polo Team.

“I love all sports and grew up with horses. My

father played as well as my younger brother, so

it was a natural choice for me,” he says.

And how will you know it’s him? “I’m pretty

tall and quite loud on the field!”

Dress Code

Going to the polo is a unique day out –

both in terms of sporting spectatorship

and dress code. While bearing some

similarities to a day at the races,

polo dress is less structured, more

‘undone’… and is about comfort, above

all else. Ladies – avoid the stilettos at

all costs!

Most important moment

of the match?

The final chukka. Games are very much

won or lost in these final seven minutes

– it can sometimes feel like a lifetime!

Worst thing you could say to

a polo player?

“Break a leg” – a player’s worst

nightmare!

FAT OR FAD?

Is fat something to fear or something to revere?

High-protein, low-carb diets are the diets du jour going into 2019, but, if you’re

contemplating keto, first consider whether you could

stomach 1500 calories from fat a day.


STYLE | report 29

Filling time at Sydney Airport recently, ahead of an early

flight home, I decided to have a ‘light’ breakfast at Mach2

restaurant. I clocked other diners tucking into plates of

bacon and eggs with the lot provoking my reflex response:

‘unhealthy’, and duly ordered the home-made crumpets with

ricotta and berries. Well, all eyes soon turned my way when

three enormous crumpets as high as they were wide arrived,

peeking out from a mountain of creamy ricotta, berry compote

and golden syrup so extravagant my neighbour leaned over to

declare “that looks more like dessert”.

Inflight, fending off a food coma from the only crumpet I’d

managed, I watched Netflix doco The Magic Pill, which suggests

what we’ve been told about nutrition is dangerously wrong;

that the fat-based diet eaten by our hunter-gatherer ancestors

is the fuel nature intended for us, not the carbohydrate-based

diet the western world has been consuming in recent times.

The film tracks people in the US and Australia adopting a

protein-based ‘ketogenic’ diet that’s high on fat and very low

on carbs to not only lose weight but alleviate chronic health

conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma,

hypertension and autism. Within weeks they all achieve

remarkable improvements in wellbeing, losing not only kilos

but entrenched drug dependency. Compelling arguments are

made for re-evaluating the relative position of carbs vs fats in

our diet and ridding it of refined oils, processed and low-fat

foods, provoking much food for thought: Would bacon and

eggs have been the healthier breakfast choice?

Should we fuel on carbs or on fat?

“Why do humans alone need willpower to control

our weight when all other species on the planet

(except those fed by us) do so automatically?” asks

The Magic Pill producer and narrator Pete Evans,

of My Kitchen Rules fame. The carbohydratebased,

low-fat diet that’s been championed since

the 1960s is the reason why, his film asserts.

Carbohydrates fuel our bodies on glucose, ie

sugar. Any chef will tell you fat equals flavour, so

low-fat food producers compensate for less taste

by adding more sugar. Consuming more sugar than

we can process makes it the culprit for escalating

rates of chronic illness and obesity, say low-carb

diet advocates.

Dubbed Paleo Pete for his fierce advocacy for

reverting to only eating the foods available to cave

dwellers in the Paleolithic era, Evans has lately

embraced the even more controversial ketogenic

diet (paleo is so 2015). Eating keto means eating

a phenomenal amount of full fat animal foods

because proponents argue our metabolism runs

more efficiently burning fat for energy – using

ketones produced from breaking down fats for fuel

– than it runs on glucose.

Evans’ ‘Magic Pill’ formula is:

• eat only wholefoods, choose organic,

primarily grass-fed meat and non-starchy

vegetables and fruit, seafood, and eggs;

• instead of avoiding animal fats, embrace

nose-to-tail eating and saturated fats like

tallow, lard and butter, along with olive

oil, avocado and coconut oils; eliminate

refined vegetable oils;

• no grains, no bread, no pasta, no cereals,

no legumes; replace them with seeds

and nuts;

• no processed foods (even the helpful

ones like wine and coffee!); fermented

foods are favoured;

• if you must have dairy, only full fat and

organic (strict paleo allows no dairy).

High fat pros and cons

High-fat, low-carb diets like keto or paleo

(or Atkins, remember that one?) replace

carbs with healthy sources of fat (naturally

occurring plant and animal fats not chemically

processed ones) and attract rave reviews for

shifting excess weight fast. They also advocate

many healthy foods, and fats are known to be

especially beneficial for our brains.

On the flipside, critics claim too many

rules make such diets too hard to follow,

that weight loss is difficult to maintain long

term and living on grass-fed beef and wild,

sustainably caught seafood is expensive. But

the major criticism of these diets is that they

are unbalanced, eliminating entire food groups

considered essential to healthy eating.

That’s why, when the Keto Diet was

assessed for the first time this year by health

experts for US News & World Report’s annual

40 Best Diets, it ranked last (paleo came in at

32). That’s why the president of the Australian

Medical Association called for The Magic Pill to

be pulled off air (citing its misinformation risk).

I can, however, vouch first hand for the

transformative effect of Pete’s diet. Ten years

ago, I escorted him on a media famil when

he was a host of a daytime cooking show and

chef at fashionable Hugo’s Pizza Restaurant.

While unquestionably good looking then, since

turning his back on carbs and leaving pizza

making to his brother, Pete now looks way

fitter and his complexion and those ultra-blue

eyes positively glow (more than any amount of

teeth whitening could account for).

How does keto differ from paleo?

Both are high-fat, low-carb diets – in keto’s case

extremely low carbs – advocating a high intake

of animal proteins. While paleo focusses on

eliminating certain foods to only eat high-protein,

low-carb food rich in fibre, a ketogenic diet’s

primary focus is to change the body’s metabolism

from running on sugar to running on fat. To

achieve and maintain this state of ‘ketosis’, you

must radically reduce your carbohydrate intake

and replace the vast majority of carbs with fat.

Intermittent fasting helps to enter ketosis too.

Going keto means keeping count of the three

macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats)

to derive 75% of your daily calorie intake (which

averages 2000 calories for women, 2500 for

men) from fat, 20% from protein (which rather

than being a fuel is a building block) and just 5%

from carbs – that amounts to one banana a day.

So, should we ditch the carbs?

Those children of the 1960s, fed largely on meat and three veg and a

message of fat clogs our arteries, have grown into adults consuming pasta,

rice, grains and way more processed, lower fat, higher salt and sugar

convenience foods. Along the way our waistlines have expanded markedly

– the average weight gain for NZ women since 1960 is 18.5%, men 17.6%

and our rates of obese adults and overweight children are third highest in

the world. We asked Senior Lecturer in Sports Nutrition at the University

of Canterbury Dr Carl Petersen whether it’s time we ditched the carbs?

“The reason for increasing rates of obesity and chronic illness is

multifactorial and cannot just be put down to high-fat and/or high-carb

diets,” he says, because it doesn’t take into account variables like an

individual’s exercise habits, gut health, sleep patterns and stress hormones.

He points to a 25-year study of 15,428 Americans tracking low-carb vs

high-carb consumption, published recently in The Lancet, that found the

low-carb eaters lived on average four years less (high-carb dieters 1.1

years less) than those eating the recommended moderate level of carbs.

The study also found diets favouring plant- rather than animal-based

proteins were associated with lower mortality.

Dr Petersen does, though, agree there is mounting evidence suggesting

saturated fat is not the only villain, as it’s been painted to be, and rather

sugar contributes too. “From a health perspective a sugar tax is a good

idea,” he says. “Even as people reduce sugary-beverage consumption and

companies reduce sugar content in beverages, the savings in government

medical expenditure far outweigh the declining tax intake.” Decreased

soft drink consumption since the UK introduced its sugar tax in 2016 is

forecast to prevent 370 coronary heart disease deaths annually. New

Zealand lags behind Pacific neighbours in preparing to take on the sugar

peddlers and 48 cities and nations that have imposed sugar taxes to date.

Which diets are recommended?

The New Zealand Ministry of Health has reviewed

eight popular diets and recommends either the

Mediterranean or the DASH diets (concurring with

US News’ 40 Best Diets, which rates these equal

first place). It does not recommend either Paleo or

Very-Low Carbohydrate diets.

The Mediterranean diet emphasises eating plenty

of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, legumes

and nuts; replacing butter with monounsaturated

fats, mainly from olive oil; and eating a moderate

amount of fish, poultry and dairy products, with

little or no red meat. There’s no quick fix – the

Ministry says it’s effective for weight loss when a

person follows it for 12 or more months – but

it’s proven to reduce the risk of heart disease and

stroke, and improve blood sugar control in people

with type 2 diabetes.

The DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop

Hypertension) diet helps lower blood pressure and

risk of heart disease and cancer by emphasising

plenty of vegetables, fruits and low-fat dairy

products, and moderate amounts of whole grains,

fish, poultry and nuts.

What about commercial programmes?

The Ministry of Health says research has found that, on

average, commercial weight-loss programmes result in

greater weight loss than self-directed diets and advises

these could better suit those seeking more rapid weight

loss. But these cost money and it can be hard for

people to sustain the benefits once they stop paying for

counselling, peer support and monitoring.

WeightWatchers is ranked the best commercial diet

plan by the American study (Jenny Craig ranked 12th),

coming in fourth place overall after Flexitarian (basically

vegetarian, with occasional meat or fish), because it

teaches how to incorporate a full range of foods in your

diet and because of the support base. It also topped the

list of Best Weight-Loss Diets.


32 STYLE | report

How about a detox?

I’m a flexitarian kind of girl who’s welcomed paleo’s

cauliflower rice and life-changing bread (google it!), but given

that bread and cheese would be my desert-island food,

my decades-long aversion to red meat, and voluntary drug

dependency on caffeine and alcohol, I’m not going to jump

on the keto bandwagon anytime soon. In fact, Dry July, is the

closest I’ve ever come to a fad diet.

But, in the interests of research, I took up Greenroots

Juicery’s offer of a three-day Organic Juice Cleanse. Yes, that

meant no solid food for 72 hours. Replacing it with seven

liquid ‘meals’ a day allows the metabolic organs to rest and

renew, says Greenroots’ Chief Wellness Warrior Katie

Penelope. The energy the body normally expends simply

digesting food is instead focused on absorbing a huge influx

of vitamins and minerals (over 1kg of organic produce is

pressed into each of the five main daily juices). Katie says the

abnormal amount of toxins we’re now exposed to – not just

in what we eat and drink, but in the air and skin products –

means we can only flush out so much before we start storing

them. Rather than a detox, though, she prefers to describe a

cleanse as a ‘reset’ for the body once it’s emptied out the old

(think of it as a DIY oil change).

Day one of my reset went surprisingly well. The raw,

organic, cold-pressed juices, smoothies and tonics were,

without exception, delicious – kickstarting with the intensely

flavoured wellness shot of turmeric, ginger, lemon, lime, wild

orange and black pepper. So, no hardship there. Nor was

hunger a problem, as I’d feared – more than 35 serves a

day of organic fruits, veges and superfoods charging into my

metabolism kept it ticking along nicely.

I did develop a very mild caffeine withdrawal headache that

afternoon, which came and went over the next two days. I

found myself muddling words, both writing and speaking, and

putting food in the fridge rather than the freezer; I suspect for

lack of caffeine or fats. And, towards the end of the day, I got

very tired and went to bed early to experience the deepest,

longest sleep I’d had in months and even remembered my

dreams the next day – which I seldom can.

I sailed through day two and was feeling super calm and

contented, even though it was one of those dreary, wet

Saturdays that normally drive me stir-crazy. Not having to

plan and prepare meals was bliss.

However, I was falling down in one area. On top of the

prescribed three litres of juice daily, I was meant to be

drinking an equal amount of water to – believe it or not

– hydrate. Between sipping on 550ml juices (which take a

surprisingly long time to drink) and tripping to the bathroom

(very, very frequently), to imbibe a further 300–500ml of

water between each juice, as recommended, I would’ve

needed gills.

On day three I awoke from another remarkably good

sleep and switched from the Live Light to the Signature

Cleanse for a slightly different menu. Gone was my breakfast

fave, Mint Choc Chip Superfood Smoothie (raw cacao nibs,

banana, activated cashews, cacao powder, mint, peppermint

essential oil, dates), in favour of tangelo, green apple, lemon

and beetroot (still yummy, just not as satisfying). By midafternoon

I was counting how many bottles to go. I longed to

bite something. I wasn’t hangry, simply bored, and that made

me realise how often I turn to food for entertainment (and

we all know what that means: surplus calories). I made do

with two chocolate buttons (one white, one dark: you know,

balance) and with my reset metabolism it really wasn’t hard

to find the willpower to stay on task to the end.

The upshot

Did I lose weight on the juice cleanse? Maybe a kilo – no

doubt through loss of water as is the case initially with

all ‘lose weight fast’ diets. While juice cleanses halve the

normal calorie intake, the purpose of a cleanse is not

weight loss but enhanced nutrition, says Katie. Did I come

out the other side feeling healthier? Absolutely.

After all this research, I think I’ll be looking to ‘eat

everything in moderation (in moderation)’ and get enough

exercise. If I want to eat chips, chocolate and cheese, I will,

just not every day or to excess (quality chocolate contains

no dairy or the nasty trans fats anyway).

I’m not convinced there is a magic pill to losing weight

but am certain every one of us would be healthier cutting

down on low-fat, processed and sugar-dense, nutrientpoor

A COLLECTIVE

APPROACH

Kiwis love starting their own businesses, but when this includes

working from home, with only the cat and dog to bounce ideas off, the creative juices

might not flow so freely. Vanessa Ortynsky looks inside

the shared office spaces that are about as motivating as they come.

Sherwood

As working environments continue to evolve, an

increasingly larger amount of people are leaving

traditional 9–5 jobs and conventional office spaces behind.

In New Zealand, shared office spaces are on the rise and

the trend shows no sign of slowing down.

With the new year, come new opportunities – whether

you’re a freelance business owner looking to connect

with like-minded entrepreneurs or a business wanting to

be inspired by innovative companies. This month, we look

at interesting shared spaces throughout the South Island,

from Nelson to Invercargill.


STYLE | home 35

Evil Genius (Christchurch)

More than just a shared space, Evil Genius also operates as

a bar and eatery. It’s a place to zig when everyone else is

zagging, and it certainly delivers on offering something a bit

different than the traditional co-working spaces. Its purpose

is to gather the best alternative thinkers, doers and sharers

in town to shake things up and challenge convention.

Situated on the estuary, Evil Genius inspires creativity,

productivity and collaboration. This is modern working at

its best with a huge selection of ergonomic office furniture

thanks to Ergostyle. Everything you need from endless

Wi-Fi, free printing and scanning, to unique breakout

spaces. If you’re interested in doing things differently, stop

by for a drink and ask for a tour.

The Bridge Street

Collective (Nelson)

The Bridge Street Collective is

a co-working studio for creative

professionals to work alongside each

other in a dynamic and vibrant space.

The first of its kind, Bridge Street

came about even before co-working

was a thing. Founder, Galen King,

purchased 111 Bridge Street in 2011,

building a collaborative community

from the ground up. From here

began the creative spark that Nelson

needed, helping businesses grow

and giving remote workers a sense

of community. The Bridge Street

Collective supplies all the essentials of

an office without the stress of day-today

operations. More than a desk, it’s

a community and support system in

Nelson.

Many shared spaces in the region

and further afield have been modelled

off The Bridge Street Collective, so

it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in

the market for a new office or just

wanting to have a nosey.

THE FOUNDATIONS

FOR A GREAT TOWNSCAPE

Architect Richard Dalman highlights why variety is the spice

of life – even when it comes to town planning.

The Crossing, central Christchurch. Supplied by Wilson and Hill Architects.

In 1961, an Englishman called Gordon Cullen wrote

a little book that has become a go-to thesis on good

urban design – how to make cities enjoyable places to

live and experience through careful attention to design.

The Concise Townscape has been republished many

times since, and I first came across it as an architectural

student in the 1980s. Through photographs and hand

sketches, Cullen describes and explains the mix of

buildings, streets and open spaces that make up

our cities.

The key concept Cullen explained that has always

stuck with me is that of ‘serial vision’. He says,

“Although the pedestrian walks through the town at a

uniform speed, the scenery of towns is often revealed in

a series of jerks or revelations… Our original aim is to

manipulate the elements of the town so that an impact

on the emotions is achieved. A long straight road has

little impact because the initial view is soon digested

and becomes monotonous. The human mind reacts to

a contrast, to the differences between things, and when

two pictures (the street and the courtyard) are in the

mind at the same time, a vivid contrast is felt and the

town becomes visible in a deeper sense. It comes alive

through the drama of juxtaposition.”


STYLE | architecture 39

People coming together can create enjoyment and

pleasure greater than being by yourself. And likewise the

grouping of buildings together can create a much richer

architecture than one building standing alone in isolation.

Add spaces around – tight laneways, wider streets with

courtyards and squares varying in size and form – and

you have a potential for a great townscape. And this

townscape could be old or new. It’s the juxtaposition and

variety and order of spaces that is critical.

After the earthquakes I worked with the late Peter

Beaven to develop these ideas further, and proposed a

development of laneways and small squares defined by

buildings that linked Cathedral Square with the Avon

River. Peter described the design as “a rich detailed

pathway… full of surprise and delightful incident; a

Parisian Left Bank idea”. When I pointed out to him it

could be described as being on the Right Bank of the

Avon, he replied, in typical style, “it all depends on

your perception”.

I likened it to walking through the streets of Venice

(without the canals) or Florence (without the churches),

progressing from narrow laneways to small courtyards

and squares with surprises around each corner, and with

a final end goal in mind.

It is hard to create a randomness of spaces in a

rectangular grid of streets that is Christchurch central city,

although our city blocks are relatively large and this does

provide opportunities within.

40 STYLE | architecture

A riverside precinct for central Christchurch. Supplied by Dalman Architects.

Poplar Lane, before the earthquakes,

came close to achieving what I am talking

about. The new BNZ Centre tries hard with

good connectivity into a central court. The

Terrace shows potential, but we won’t be

able to experience all its elements until it is

fully complete.

The best built example so far in Christchurch

is The Crossing, with its multitude of entrances

from streets and through shops and car park,

including the first floors. There is interest and

surprise around each corner. While it is small

enough not to get lost, it is also ‘random’

enough with an everchanging scene that impacts

on the emotion, holds your attention, creates

anticipation, and surprises you, even on your

next visit. Whichever way you approach it, upon

entry there is no obvious way out. Lessons of

Venice have been learnt and expressed here.

While there is always a place for the grand

straight gesture, such as the Champs Élysées

in Paris, the great views to ‘infinity’ from the

Palace of Versailles, and the important axis of

Christchurch’s Worcester Boulevard from the

cathedral to the museum, there is also a strong

need in our central city for the experiences

gained and emotions created by the careful

manipulation of changing spaces as we walk

through and experience our townscape.

I hope to see more variety of streets,

laneways and squares resulting in everchanging

drama as the city continues to develop.

A WELCOMING

OUTDOOR SPACE

Summer evenings are best spent outside,

but is your outdoor area as inviting as it could be?

Jonny Collett discusses ways to make the

most of the great outdoors.

Where do we start when planning an outdoor

entertainment area?

Design is always key to setting the expectation of what you

want to get out of the outdoor environment. Along with

design, you want to ensure you are adding value to not only

your lifestyle, but your home. It is important to research your

materials – decking timber, concrete colours, paving and so on

to ensure what you construct will suit a range of elements.

How do we ensure our indoor spaces connect with our

outdoor ones?

During the design phase, look at how you can open up a

room of the house by possibly installing a French or stacker

door to double the space of the area.

Are there tricks to making a small space feel more spacious?

Work around grass, add colour to the fencing, de-clutter and

use bolder materials.

Conversely, what considerations are important with a

large space?

Add focal points to the area. During the design process,

look to add built-in seating, fire pits, louvres, in-built chilly

bins or a large furniture item. Wine barrels are always great

in any space.

What are aspects commonly overlooked when it comes to

outdoor design?

Finishing details – I see a lot of decking that has a lack of

craftsmanship. Turn to easy-care plants for extra colour and

lighting to set the mood, and don’t overlook water features –

they’re good for the soul!

UP THE GARDEN PATH

Craig Wilson focuses on the journey, as well as the destination,

in his appreciatory look at paths.

well-placed garden path is one of the best tricks up a garden designer’s

A sleeve. At its most simplistic, this could be a humble gravel trail from

someone’s back door to their wood shed, or, at its most elaborate, a

beautifully paved boulevard leading to the entrance of a city’s most notable

public building.

While we all need a way to get from A to B, a path can transcend

functionality and create meaning and emotion in even the smallest of

garden spaces. A path leads us to where we need to go, or where we want

to go. It takes us on a journey and provides us with experiences along the

way, speaking to us of adventure. When we can’t quite see where they go,

they create a sense of mystery.

When used well in garden design, a path

crafts an invitation, subtly drawing your

eye to a space the designer wants you to

explore and experience. It could be a series

of paving slabs through an open lawn, leading

to a bench seat with a view back toward

the house, or an informal rock-lined track

leading you to the crest of a tussock-covered

mountaintop.

The surrounding plantings and material

underfoot will create the atmosphere your

path will evoke. A path through a densely

planted, shadowed woodland will have a

moody feel. The sound of the wind in the

surrounding trees will add another layer of

intrigue. High quality paving surfaces will let

you know the destination at the end of the

path is a place of substance, while irregular

aggregate chip will inform you the destination

is understated and relaxed. The sound

your shoe makes on the path adds another

experiential element to your journey…

Not all of us have property large enough to

accommodate lengthy, story-filled pathways.

However, with careful thought to garden

layout we could possibly incorporate an

enhanced sense of destination or mystery

in our gardens with a well-conceived and

structured garden path.

is put on a strict diet before qualifying

chia seed oil, daikon radish and prebiotics,

you feel you’re on the right

track before you flip a lid.

Best aspect? The pre-biotic gel

cleanser. Applied to dry skin (then

washed off), you know the product

is going where it should.

I wish… Sun protection was part

of the package – as, with my skin

confidence, make-up free weekends

are frequent.

Results? I was concerned the facial

oil would lead to congestion, but

instead I think this four-product

skincare range has helped me to

discover true skin balance.

Love this range – like having a

‘green goddess’ facial every day.

Best aspect? The gentle awakening

to evocative botanical scents as I

massaged the cleanser into my skin.

I wish… I was better at scheduling

the evening cleanse and moisturise

routine. And an exfoliator would

be the icing on the (vegan) cake.

Results? These gorgeous natural

products deeply cleanse and

plump the skin to a degree

normally reserved for salon

treatments. My skin surface has

appreciably improved.

IT’S GLOW TIME

Baby oil slicks and tanning beds are a thing of a past, but if you would like to turn

up the tone, there are a myriad of products out there that are up to the task.

Words Clemency Alice

Applying a fake tan during the summer months is a

healthy and skin-safe way to achieve a faux glow

without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays.

To achieve a beautiful finish it’s imperative that you prep

your skin beforehand. For the body, remove dead skin cells

with an exfoliating mitt or body brush to create a smooth

uniform surface, then rinse with warm soapy water. For

face-specific tanning products, gently exfoliate then cleanse

and tone the skin to remove any oily residue.

Try applying your fake tan in the evening, so that it works

its golden magic while you rest. Best make sure you’re

not sleeping in your most coveted sheets and nightwear,

however, as you don’t want them stained by tan marks.

There’s everything from tanning waters to oils and

creams out there, but before you get started, get

prepped. Banish the flakes and pave the way for a smooth

application of your tanner of choice with the ELEMIS

Lime and Ginger Salt Glow (lotusspa.co.nz). It goes above

and beyond the task at hand with its blend of bergamot,

coconut and sweet almond oils that serves to stimulate and

tone the skin, while the lime, ginger and salt give it a good

polish and leave skin feeling silky soft.

A ‘gently does it’ approach is always advisable when it

comes to tanning. For a spray-on option, try self-tanning

body mist Chanel L’Eau Tan (ballantynes.co.nz). It envelops

your body with a gentle, sunny scent – created by master

perfumer Olivier – and provides a subtle light tan, like one

achieved in the opening of summer. Spray on daily until

you reach your desired colour and then two to three times

per week for a long-lasting tan.

Slipping in a bit of colour as you moisturise is a process

of pure logic. St Tropez Gradual Tan (farmers.co.nz)

is designed for lighter, fairer skin tones and is infused

with skin-soothing aloe vera for added hydration, while


STYLE | beauty 53

Isle Of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops

(prettylittlething.com.au) blend into your

preferred moisturiser. The customised

colour-correcting drops create a streak-free

summer glow and are ideal for those who

experience dryness, dull or uneven skin tone.

‘Peach’ tanning drops provide a light tan,

‘Green’ for medium, and ‘Violet’ for a darker

tan, all formulated with a combination of

organic tanning activities and nourish skin oils

of chia, coconut and avocado.

Combining sunscreen with your fake tan

is the ultimate combination, which is why

Vita Liberata Marula Self Tan Oil (sephora.

com) is another winner. The broad spectrum

SPF50 gradual tanner creates a beautiful

luminous skin glow and is formulated from

organic DHA, precious Tahitian monoi,

marula and neroli flower extract. Nourishing

for dry skins too.

Whatever you choose, remember, by going

faux you’re saving face.

STOMPING

THE DIVOTS

IN STYLE

The polo is coming to town, but just what should one wear?

Words Ella James

In November I survived my first spring racing

carnival. I educated myself on all things fascinators,

dress codes and racing lingo to ensure I blended in

with all of the fillies.

Having grown rather fond of my racing headwear

and dress selection, I wondered if I could just reuse

these outfits for the polo? Absolutely not, I’m told.

It would appear polo is an entirely different ball

game, so this novice had better head back to the

drawing board.

I’ve been informed that although we’ll all be

dressing to impress, the dress code for the polo is

less structured than that of the races, with more

casual attire being the order of the day. Casual yet

still absolutely charming, that is. Let’s start from the

feet up.

It wouldn’t be a day at the polo without

participating in the age-old tradition of ‘stomping

the divots’ and doing so effectively requires a rather

particular type of footwear. Stilettos will only create

further divots, and while I encourage you to get

stuck in, I certainly don’t mean literally. So, when

booting up, I suggest a wedged heel; they’re the

epitome of summer footwear after all, and they’re

so well suited for a day on the lawn.

Now, let’s talk about the dress itself. Much to my

delight, it would appear that looser, sun dresses take

the place of the tight, sophisticated dresses spotted

at the races. So, I can go tremendously hard on the

canapés without the fear of my zipper popping.

Given that this is a most joyous affair, I’ll be opting

for a dress in white, pastels or a seasonal print over

darker dresses. Actress Sienna Miller has hit the

mallet on the head with her polo attire, should you

be lacking inspiration.

Next stop, headwear. You needn’t dust off your


STYLE | fashion 59

fascinators for a day at the polo. Boater

hats, wide-brimmed sun hats, statement

headbands and head wraps will most

definitely suffice. Many guests will ditch the

headwear altogether and see the event as

the perfect excuse to experiment with a

different hairstyle, such as a thick, messy

braid. Complement your relaxed headwear

or your up-do with a pair of statement

earrings and you’re sure to be turning heads

all day long.

I’m almost ready for the polo, but

forgetting my accessories would be a

travesty. Do not, I repeat, do not leave your

sunglasses at home. After too much sun

and too much G.H. Mumm, there’s nothing

more comforting than knowing your blurry

eyes are being shielded by rose-tinted glass.

You may be feeling the effects of one too

many bubbles, but the rest of us will be

none the wiser. Another flute anyone?

So, there we have it, a quick and concise

guide to dressing for the polo. All that’s left

is to school ourselves on the game itself…

(best turn back to page 27!).

GETTING DRESSED

WITH BESS

Style catches up with BESS, the new brand on the block

proving that versatility is king.

Words Ella James

Let’s take a moment to talk about scarves.

At one point or another, we’ve likely all

been gifted one. Christmas just gone perhaps.

They come perfectly wrapped, encased in

a shallow white gift box, held together by a

contrasting ribbon. You can picture it now, can’t

you? Without being educated on this particular

accessory, we’ll likely wear it once or twice,

leaving it rather redundant for the rest of its

years. However, it simply doesn’t have to be

this way.

While during the colder months my

scarves get a fair bit of airtime, as soon as the

temperatures rise, my ability to work them

into my outfits totally fails. In hope of working

these underrated accessories into my wardrobe

year round, I asked scarf scholar and Creative

Director of BESS Nicole Sykes for her summer

styling tips. The trick, apparently, is to think of

your scarf as an accessory that can cool you

down rather than keep you warm. Sykes’ go-to

look in the summer is a scarf styled as a head

wrap, as it’s the perfect way to get your hair off

your face with upmost style. I’ve certainly taken

note. Goodbye hot, sticky hair. Hello smooth,

cool silk.

So, that’s our ‘driving around in our

convertible’ look sorted, but what other scarf

styling tips can we take on this summer? Of

course, Sykes has another seasonal suggestion


STYLE | fashion 61

up her very fashionable sleeve that will take

your hairstyle game to the next level. Sykes

suggests weaving your scarf into a messy

braid or tying around a topknot or low, sleek

ponytail; three more stellar suggestions that

are further opening my eyes to the scope

that surrounds scarves.

Have you ever considered looping your

silk scarf through the belt loop on your

denim shorts or skirt? Neither had I, which

is why I’m ever so glad to have spoken

to Sykes. Styling a silk scarf like this is the

perfect way to add the most chic splash of

colour to your get up. Nicole wears hers

with a crisp white tee and her best denim

cut-offs, and I’ll certainly be following suit.

And what about those larger silk scarves

I hear you ask? When you’re not wearing

yours around your neck or as a wonderful

head scarf, Nicole suggests draping yours

around high-waisted bikini bottoms. Running

from the ocean to the ice cream truck has

never looked so damn stylish.

So there you have it. A plethora of new

ways to style those silk scarves that are

all too often forgotten. Nicole from BESS,

you’re a summer style life saver and you’ve

officially convinced me to dig out all of my

scarves that I didn’t think would see daylight

for months to come. Seriously, did I mention

how underrated scarves were?

THE ABCs

OF ESSENTIAL INVESTMENT PIECES FOR MEN

Getting suited and booted has never looked so good…

Words Ella James

T

IS FOR T-SHIRT

Arguably the ultimate style staple.

How many t-shirts do you have hanging up in your wardrobe at home?

No, not including those grubby, ill-fitting ones. Zero? We thought as much.

Having a plethora of crisp, clean, well-fitted white t-shirts is your gateway to

simple but effective every day dressing. Take your pick between round neck

and V-neck, but stay clear of pocketed, buttoned-down styles. Given that

they perfectly complement jeans, chinos, suit pants and shorts whether worn

under jackets, shirts or simply on their own, you really will wonder how you

ever lived without a stock pile of plain white t-shirts.

S

IS FOR SUIT

Look no further than British actor Henry

Cavill for, quite frankly, a textbook example

of how to don a suit.

A suit should fit perfectly, not too long,

loose, tight or short. Meaning that sometimes

an off-the-rack option just won’t cut it, so

consider investing in a tailored suit instead.

Opt for a versatile colour like navy or

black that will keep you looking suave and

sophisticated no matter the occasion. Each

time you sport your tailor-made suit, you can

mix it up with different shirts, pocket squares,

shoes, ties and cufflinks. Just repeat after me,

‘a suit must fit like a glove’.

U

IS FOR UMBRELLA

Okay so it’s not technically an item

of clothing, but hear us out…

the most enviable garments so don’t

let the elements get the better of

you. Some of the most covetable

FUEL USAGE

11.9l/100km

There’s little doubt that the way we view automobiles is changing with a

global demand for fuel efficiency and fewer emissions. Most manufacturers

are looking at ways to address those issues, and that’s showing with an everincreasing

number of hybrids and electric vehicles reaching our market. I’m not

rebelling against the electric revolution, but the reality is I’ll find it hard to give up

my desire for internal combustion engines, and the bigger and more powerful

they are, the better.

I know Mercedes-Benz is developing electric models, and it’s only a matter of

time before they arrive en masse down under. I don’t know where that leaves

its big cars, and the big engines, but in the interim I can be very grateful that I’ve

sampled some of the best engines to come out of Germany, as well as some of

the most powerful.

My latest foray into the high-performance driveline was in the AMG GLC

63S sport utility vehicle, a large wagon that also comes in coupe-like form, both

sharing the 4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8.

It’s a monster in terms of power outputs – 375kW and 700Nm – the latter

available all of the way from 1750rpm to 4500rpm and, if you take into account

peak power is on tap all of the way to 6250rpm, it’s no wonder I’m hooked. The

GLC is a super-quick, high top-speed car, and you’d expect nothing less from the

performance arm of Mercedes-Benz. AMG claims a 3.8sec standstill to 100km/h

acceleration time along with a governed 250km/h top end.

These figures are fantastic, making the GLC one of the quickest cars I’ve

driven, and it does so in a way that you know you are travelling fast; even in


STYLE | motoring 71

standard mode the engine is quite audible, it bellows out

of the exhaust and if you want extra sound a consolemounted

push-button will increase the decibels. The

GLC fairly thunders under acceleration.

This engine is utilised in a wide range of Mercedes-

Benz product, and in some cases it drives through to

the rear wheels only, delivering a true sports car feel,

but the GLC has drive to all four wheels and that adds

an element of reassurance. As a driver, you know that

delivering that power to the ground is going to be

channelled in a fashion that won’t catch you out with

oversteer. If you also take into account the huge 21

inch wheels with massive tyres (265/40 and 295/35)

then grip levels are high. Even so, on my high-country

evaluation drive there were a couple of instances when

I felt traction control complaining, such as powering out

of a corner.

Drive is channelled through a nine-speed automatic

transmission, and there are varying drive modes that the

driver can select or individualise to suit his/her driving

style. Even in standard mode the engine management

protocols are structured so that the driver can enjoy the

V8 experience at all times; it rumbles and burbles away,

tantalising with its response and urgency. Not that it is

a handful in low-speed situations, the GLC has perfect

inner-city manners, the combination of brawn and

beauty is an engineering masterpiece.

The GLC is a true SUV, it has a cavernous rear load

area, and for five adults there is comfort in abundance.

It is also built in the traditional Mercedes-Benz style that

is high in luxury and specification, sharing the look and

feel with a layout that is systematic across most of the

Mercedes-Benz range.

Column space doesn’t allow comprehensive detailing

of the features and fitment. However, it’s fair to say the

GLC wants for little and the interior is state-of-the-art

with all of the electronic goodies you’d want in a car that

sits towards $200k. Yes, if you add in a lot of the options

from Mercedes-Benz’s extensive catalogue of extras, the

base price tag of $189,000 could be well stretched.

However, for my money the pleasure to be had

from the fabulous bi-turbo engine would be well worth

the outlay. Don’t go believing that it is going to overly

create havoc with the environment, as, for all of its brute

force, the GLC 63S has respectable fuel usage figures.

AMG claims an 11.9-litre per 100km (24mpg) combined

cycle average, which sits well with the trip computer’s

12.8l/100km (22mpg) figure during my time with the

test car.

I know for certain the drive in the GLC 63S won’t

be my last in a V8, but I do know such opportunities

will become fewer and further between. For those

who feel like me, now is the time to buy before they

face extinction.

QUALITY EATS

in Queenstown

Vanessa Ortynsky satisfies her thirst for Aperol Spritz and Central Otago

wines at a few of the adventure capital’s standout eateries.

Photography Vanessa Ortynsky

’Gram-worthy pizza

Located on the rooftop of Jucy Snooze (47 Camp Street), Miss Lucy’s is a

beautifully designed space with epic views to match. The pizza bar has recently

released a new menu just in time for the summer months. Choose from a large

range of pizzas, tasty salads and sides, including plenty of vegan and vegetarian

options. You’ll also want to order one of their cocktails, which are some of the

best in town. I’m partial to the Aperol Spritz, especially on a sunny day. The

branding here is on point with impeccable attention-to-design detail, making it

super ’gram worthy.

Pinot, please!

As one of the top three pinot noir regions in the

world, Central Otago has its fair share of wineries

and wine tours. In fact, there are seven new wine

tour operators this year alone. Alpine Wine Tours

has a particularly comprehensive offering with four

different packages, all with intimate group sizes and a

generous selection of vinos to sample. Get ready for

amazing views through Gibbston Valley.

A Fish & Chip First

Would you believe me if I told you Queenstown didn’t have a fish and

chip shop three years ago? That’s what inspired Anna and Erik Arndt to

open up Erik’s Fish and Chips at 13 Earl Street. They haven’t looked

back and recently took home two accolades at the Small Business

Awards 2018. They’ve been hugely successful with locals and tourists

alike, prompting a second location in Wanaka (54 Ardmore Street).

The menu is extensive and they do a tasty fish fry-up, but probably

most noteworthy is the deep-fried kiwifruit. It’s the perfect mix of

sweet and sour and that’s all I’ll say. Another cool thing about Erik’s

is that everything on the menu is gluten-free, but you’d never know.

On sunny days, customers take their meals down to the beach or pop

aboard Perky’s floating bar for unobstructed views of Lake Wakatipu,

tap beers and Central Otago wines.

Into the night

Yonder is switching things up with a refreshing all-day food

offering alongside evening entertainment, Yonder Live. Stop by

14 Church Street for dinner to sample an inventive summer

menu. From fried cheese balls and fried chicken to fresh ceviche,

pork belly and a range of summer salads, you really can’t go

wrong. Yonder caters to all diets and everything is clearly

marked on the menu, making it super easy to find dishes you’ll

love. Their cocktail line-up is equally impressive. I loved the

Summer Spritz, which is Yonder’s take on an Aperol Spritz, but

with rhubarb. You’ll find me attempting to recreate it for the

next few months.

Food with a view

For an elevated Kiwi breakfast, I can’t go past

Queenstown mainstay Vudu Café and Larder

(16 Rees Street). Constantly heaving, the

menu ranges from healthy to indulgent with

an excellent selection of smoothies, eggbased

dishes and cabinet treats. Grab a seat

at one of the communal tables overlooking

Lake Wakatipu and tuck into poached eggs,

halloumi, sautéed spinach and kumara hash

alongside an Allpress coffee. Trust me, you’ll

never want to leave.
