6 Magazine | Editor’s message


Hopefully the new name is settling in, after our inaugural

refresh issue launched back in December. If the switch from

Style to 03 Magazine is still new to you, welcome aboard.

03 is the area code for the whole South Island, usually

(inexplicably) pronounced oh-three, for those wondering about

either thing, and seemed the perfect fit for our South Islandcelebrating

lifestyle magazine.

Moving on, while we’re not one for over-dominating themes,

you’ll find this issue has a relaxed architecture/interior design focus

– but as always aims to include something for everyone, whether

it’s eye candy, inspiration, insider intel or just interesting people.

Our cover couple just keep winning awards for their

innovative, outside-the-box design work, including for their

own unexpectedly captivating yet still highly practical shed in

Akaroa (read more on page 22), historian Elizabeth Cox has

broken ground on showcasing New Zealand women’s significant

contribution to architecture (page 26), and interior designer and

The Block NZ co-host Shelley Ferguson shares some expert tips

on how to best use colour in our homes (page 42).

There’s also food (Christchurch foodie Sam Parish’s gochujangglazed

eggplant with chippies on page 61 is of particular note),

fashion, beauty, books, arts, travel (Central Otago in a Tesla, page

52) and a bit of booze.

What’s up, in, chat-worthy, cool, covetable

and compelling right now.

A taste of Mexico

Lucky Wānaka has just been blessed with yet another incredibly

cool, chic and delicious eatery in the form of Paloma, which

you’ve likely seen popping up on your social feeds with its curvy

forms and lush rosy hues. The third venture of James Stapley,

executive chef and owner of lauded local establishments kika and

Arc, Paloma’s remit is to make the best tacos possible, using New

Zealand ingredients (right down to tortillas made using Kiwi corn).

There’s also the must-try signature grapefruit tequila cocktail the

taqueria is named for.


Covetable collab

When two of our fave Kiwi brands collaborate,

you can count us in, and this heaven-scent

(pun intended) candle created by fashion label

Shjark and fragrance atelier Arc is going straight

on the wishlist. Designed to encourage slowing

down and incorporating ritual into your day,

the bespoke, locally blended scent, Ambré,

has notes of mimosa, tobacco flower, iris and

cedar with an amber heart. Crafted by skilled

local artisans, each glass is hand poured and

can be repurposed when empty.


New show added

Those despairing that they had missed out on

tickets to iD Dunedin’s spectacular fashion show at

the historic railway station will be thrilled to learn

a second show has been added after the Saturday

night event sold out super quick. The new show

will hit the runway Friday March 31 and will also

include the International Emerging Designer Awards

winner announcements. Tickets come with a drink

and access to iD’s exclusive digital goodie bag and

programme, and attendees can also add food boxes,

provided by iD’s hospitality partner Vault 21, to

their ticket, to be delivered to their seats on arrival.


New Year

New Opportunities

Welcome to 2023: a year that,

like its recent predecessors, will

have its very own signature.

That combination of continuing market

changes (think price), challenges (think

interest rates plus inflationary pressure)

and beauty (or opportunity, as I like to

call it).

I’m curious about the year ahead. We

have an election, always interesting,

given its potential to hamper major

decision-making at both an individual

and a national level, and we have that

vacuum created when everyone is trying

to pick the bottom of the market and the

likelihood of an upswing.

Which, I might add, will eventually

happen, as it has every other time there’s

been a slump in activity – repositioning,

as some industry experts like to describe

the current market.

Last year, at about this time, I looked

at my very old and battered crystal ball

hoping for some sort of insight befitting

my now 29-year tenure.

I noted that experts were at odds, with

opinions that ranged from a 4% decrease

in prices across the board to others

thinking that the astronomical gains of

the 2020/’21 period could continue. In

retrospect, it looks like no-one realised

the depth of the correction we would go

on to experience – or the level of zeal the

Reserve Bank would bring to the country

with its ‘stop spending’ and ‘beware

the property market is unsustainable’


Frequent increases in our OCR levels,

interest rate rises (with more to come)

have all but brought to a halt that

runaway horse we were riding, one which

had indulged itself on huge increases in

property values, cheap money and eyewatering

auction clearance rates.

So where are we going?

A lot of the dialogue is once again mixed,

so maybe rather than look at data

(which can be confusing no matter how

experienced you are) I’d prefer to look at

opportunities that are being created.

I’m thinking about you, buyers!

You are the lucky ones in this orbit of the

marketing cycle.

Do not squander your chances while

standing on the side-line thinking, I’ll

wait it out, I’ll squeeze every last ounce

of opportunity out of the seller.

You have so much on your side,

especially choice, that most exquisite of

factors which over the last few years has

been such a rarity.

There are large numbers of properties

on or coming to the market. On

December 19th, 2022, there were 1,917

Christchurch homes for sale.

Owners are also more educated as

to prices now, many doing their best

with both their presentation and their

negotiation opportunities, and you, our

dedicated buyers, have the chance to

lock in your interest rate.

Make the decision to buy and get on, or

further up, the property ladder, because

you certainly have that chance.

It’s perhaps a fact of human nature that

even when you have everything you

could possibly want, you’ll still go for

more. That’s the dilemma I’ve seen with

some buyers as they challenge prices,

even those that are vastly reduced,

whilst insisting on extra chattels to be

included in the sale. Rather than the

property, we’re talking fridges, spas,

trampolines and cushions.

But there’s a flipside here. Recently

(January 5th, 2023), CoreLogic noted

that although there’s been a nationwide

drop in prices, slowing in December,

Christchurch bucked the trend (the only

main centre to do so).

Here’s the clincher: Christchurch is an

incredibly affordable city with attractive

lifestyle options, so despite everything

that’s happening we are still fortunate


With that, I’m keen to make the most of

what’s ahead. I’ve planned a massive

year prioritizing health and wellbeing,

doing great business and hopefully

getting out of my comfort zone.

Is this the time to get out of yours?

Meant to be

Another day, another sweet collaboration, this

time between iconic Kiwi lingerie label Bendon

and our own queen of lipstick, Karen Murrell.

Joining forces to celebrate self-love, with every

set of Bendon’s new ‘Meant To Be’ intimates

purchased this Valentine’s Day, you’ll get a

complimentary Karen Murrell True Love lippie.

“The power of the red lip is well known,” says

Karen. “Red gives us confidence, infuses life

with passion, and combining stunning lingerie

with a bold, powerful red lip really is a recipe

for self-empowerment. We all feel great when

we know we’re wearing stunning lingerie and a

stunning lip colour.”

New York, New York

An homage to New York City, Saben’s

AW23 collection ‘The Five Boroughs’,

releasing this month, nods to the Big Apple

both in colour and design. Think Central Park

greens, the brownstone facades of uptown

and the vibrant yellow of the downtown

taxis, and signature style Claudette’s

additional feature – a braided handle – which

can be swapped out for the crossbody strap

when you need to go hands free to juggle

a cup of Joe, a pretzel or an armful of bags

from a shopping spree along Fifth Avenue.

New and noteworthy this season is Harlow

(pictured), a sleek shoulder bag silhouette

adorned with gold chain detailing.

Art takeover

Those visiting the Canterbury

Museum in the next few months will

be in for a big surprise. While the

museum displays have now all been

removed for a major redevelopment,

the work of more than 60

international and local urban artists

is currently on display in 35 spaces

across five floors – including rooms

never seen before by the public.

“We’re asking the artists to respond

to the Museum as a space, so in

curating the exhibition we’ve tried

to include artists whose practices

contrast or connect with the work

of museums,” says exhibition curator

and urban art expert Dr Reuben

Woods. SHIFT: Urban Art Takeover

runs until April 11, 2023.


‘A Gift from the Night’, Flox and SWEATS.

Architecture and design

Wānaka’s Architecture + Design Library is a beautifully designed

multipurpose space for those in the industry to call their office away

from home. With a co-working studio, private offices, meeting areas, a

sample library, exhibition space/showroom and a breakout space to grab

a coffee, have lunch or an informal meeting, it caters both to individuals

and independent businesses. “Penny [Calder] and I (both independent

interior designers) have been working tirelessly to get this exciting new

concept known by our fellow professionals in the construction industry

and now to anyone who is building or renovating in the South Island,”

says co-founder Verity Lawrence.


WFH upgrade

Whether you’re back at school, uni

or the (home) office, beat the back

new setup from Logitech. Innovative,

ergonomic yet stylish enough to sit out

as décor, our essential picks include

the K380 Multi Device Bluetooth

Keyboard ($100), Pebble Mouse

($60), BRIO 500 Webcam ($230)

and Zone Vibe 100 Headset ($200)

The St Andrew’s College community has

welcomed 2023 with great energy and a

sense of promise and anticipation, says Rector

Christine Leighton.

“We are now in the fifth year of development

under our Strategic Vision, Framing Our Future, which

continues to guide our priorities for the coming

year. First and foremost, St Andrew’s is a place of

learning, with a focus on developing our students’

growth mindset and a love of learning. However,

we’re also strongly committed to the holistic

development of our students, and central to all that

we do is our purpose, ‘Together building better

people for life’.”

Christine says the College’s co-curricular

programmes, whole-school celebrations and

service activities are an important way for

students to further develop their all-important key

competencies – managing self, relating to others,

participating and contributing, which will prepare

them for life beyond school.

“Being part of a team, whether that be in sport,

choir, jazz band, debating, robotics, theatresports or

community service, to name just a few, helps our

students to learn many skills and attributes, which

complement their academic learning.”

Students enjoy exceptional facilities at

St Andrew’s College, which has invested $110million

in its campus over the last decade. A new fitness

centre opened in 2021, and construction of the

new Gough Family Theatre is due for completion

later this year. Boarders are well catered for in

modern, comfortable boarding houses.

Along with implementing the Strategic Vision,

Framing Our Future, there’s a focus for students and

staff to continue to live the College values of Truth,

Excellence, Faith, Creativity and Inclusivity.

“These values mean so much more to us than

words. They’re a tangible and visible guide to how

we treat each other every day and remind us of

the importance of being aware of each other’s

differences and needs,” says Christine.

Building relationships

Christchurch couple Amy Douglas and Mitchell Coll have only been

working together a little over a year, but they’ve already notched up some

big wins for their cool, clever and innovative designs.

Feature | Magazine 23

“We can’t help but

imagine everytime

we go somewhere

what it would be

like to live there,

but I feel that

nothing compares

to Christchurch."

Set like a tiny timber and polycarbonate jewel in the kānuka

belt wrapping around Akaroa township at Banks Peninsula,

sits ‘Nightlight’ – designed and built by its owners Mitchell Coll

and Amy Douglas of Fabric.

Despite being described as “a shed at heart”, the

exceptional wee structure was designed as much as a

practical utility space as it was to be a celebration of clever

architecture in its own right.

“Rather than locating this building out of sight like a typical

shed or using it only for its services, Nightlight was reimagined

as a light sculpture that will proudly be seen from the future

outdoor living space,” says Mitchell.

Not only is it the first building to sit on their site, it’s also

the couple’s first complete build. And, unsurprisingly, won a

swathe of significant awards in 2022, including a New Zealand

Architecture Award for Small Project at the New Zealand

Institute of Architects awards held at the Christchurch

Town Hall in November, where the judges described it as “a

beautifully crafted, experimental stick in the sand and first step

to building a forever home”.

“A basecamp, Nightlight is a shed tightly packed with useful

things, including a kitchen, bathroom and workshop. By night

it’s a sculptural lantern lending delight to outdoor areas. The

project’s success extends beyond the shed to an open fire,

bench seats and in-ground hot tub. The assembly of built

forms facilitates elemental experiences and connection with

the landscape,” the judges’ citation reads.

“[That] was a huge honour,” says Mitchell. “Made even more

special as it’s our own project.”

“The site in Akaroa is where we hope to build on further

and live eventually. We needed to get it established with

services and a lockable space. Instead of doing something

temporary we wanted to start off how we intended to finish

and create something that was worth our time.”

A key challenge for Nightlight was location. “All materials had

to be hauled up the steep site, which is 4WD only,” says Amy.

“The use of polycarbonate for its shell not only allows

Nightlight to shine bright, but it could be easily transported to

site and worked with hand tools. The aggregate used for the

concrete pile footings and columns was wheelbarrowed up

from the bottom of the site and hand mixed in location.”

The pair agree that rather than being harder or easier to

design for themselves as the clients, the experience is “just

different”, though Mitchell says “some aspects can be harder

as you don’t get the brief or client driven constraints that you

can often draw from”.

“I love the architectural

lineage of New Zealand and

especially Christchurch.”

“For Nightlight it was different because it’s the first building on site so

it may (or may not) influence the future buildings that we do,” says Amy.

“That added an extra layer of consideration for the form and

material selection; plus the fact that we knew we were going to build it

ourselves meant we had to design within our abilities.”

The couple (Amy a designer, Mitchell an architect) have only been

working together for just over a year, but Amy says she has always felt

part of Fabric and architecture because of Mitch’s strong relationships

with other designers, contractors and clients.

“We have great architecture friends,” she says.

Mitchell, whose father was an architectural designer, says he “was

brought up in the industry”.

“I’ve been working as an architect for 20 years now, and started

this business, originally called Coll Architecture, in 2009. Last year we

rebranded to Fabric. My focus is on creating spaces that enhance the

occupants’ connection to their environment and local context.”

Amy was previously a graphic designer, and joined the business

around a year ago “to add a different creative perspective to our

client’s projects”.

“My background means I love form and colour, but I am most

passionate about using design to make people’s everyday lives better

– it’s all about understanding and empathising with our clients wants

and needs to then provide something that’s equally functional and

beautiful,” she says.

Among Fabric’s recent projects are two

adjoining residential units in Christchurch known

as the ‘Corten homes’ for their liberal use of

Corten steel – one of which they live in – and

‘Biv’, a collaboration between Mitchell and its

owner, a Kiwi architect based in Hong Kong,

nestled in the Punakaiki bush and intended as a

reinterpretation of the region’s old mining huts.

Both, like Nightlight, have collected numerous

awards and accolades.

“We largely took inspiration from historic goldmining

huts local to the area,” says Mitchell of Biv,

which features a mostly timber interior and full

metal exterior.

“The form of the building takes cues from

the exterior chimneys repeated on those huts.

Internally the sky-facing skylight represents

the top of a smokestack, while the large

number of windows offer views into the bush or

the cliffs beyond for an all-encompassing West

Coast experience.”

For those curious to experience this unique build

for themselves, Biv is available to book on Airbnb.

Designed with young professionals in mind, the

two 74m2 Corten homes have been designed

to prioritise energy efficiency, sustainability and

durability “without making aesthetic compromises”.

“These floor plans are small but efficiently laid

out to give adequate space for everyday living,”

says Mitchell.

“Their high skillion ceilings give the feeling of

space while the low roof pitch keeps the overall

heated volume of the building down. Strategic

placement of skylights ensure their low roof pitch

does not restrict the use of the upstairs floor area

or restrict movement around the building.

“We like projects that allow us to consider

the exterior, interior and landscaping together so

everything from the big picture to small details

is cohesive. In this case, special attention was

given to minimalist detailing throughout to give

the overall feel of a refined singular ‘product’, as

opposed to a building which has been pieced

together from various parts.”

Amy adds that having no skirtings or large trims

in the interior, and a palette kept “to a minimum”,

ensures each room feels large and connected to

the others. The dark blue from the outside has

been brought in to connect interior and exterior

spaces, and the open staircase built from the same materials

as the rest of the structure merges into the space to lend the

downstairs living areas a spacious feel.

The pair recently returned from a trip abroad.

“We usually travel to see a specific building or style of

architecture, but our last holiday was to visit friends and meet

their families in the USA. We did sneak in a few days in New

York, which has such great big city vibes and art – Claude

Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ was a stand out,” says Amy.

Mitchell says there’s always plenty of inspiration to be had

while travelling (“Everywhere we go we’re taking pictures and

looking at the detailing of all the buildings around us. Looking

at a different way of doing things and thinking how we can

apply these thoughts to our projects.”), but there’s no place

like home.

“Having travelled a lot we’ve seen what it’s like to live in a

large part of the world. We can’t help but imagine every time

we go somewhere what it would be like to live there, but I

feel that nothing compares to Christchurch.

“The location just can’t be beaten, with its proximity to the

mountains and the sea. I’m a person who needs to be out in

the outdoors, hunting or fishing. The access to such a vast

amount of space to do this, while still living in a large(ish) city

with all its modern conveniences, is quite unique.”

When they aren’t building in Banks Peninsula, Amy says she

likes to get out on the Te Ara Ōtākaro Avon River trail – “it’s

Christchurch’s best kept secret” – while Mitchell is currently

particularly partial to a spot of fly-fishing.

And their passion for the region extends to its architecture.

“I love the architectural lineage of New Zealand and

especially Christchurch,” says Mitchell.

“We have such a strong aesthetic here from the

‘Christchurch Style’ initially developed by Sir Miles

Warren and his contemporaries. I love to draw inspiration

from the buildings and help add to the continuation of a

local vernacular.

“In terms of new buildings, one of my favourites is the

recently completed Ravenscar House, along with many private

residential homes designed by some of the talented architects

around Christchurch.”

Amy adds that she’s “so stoked” that the city has included

Te Ao Māori in many of the rebuilt public spaces and buildings.

“The design narratives and artworks bring so much depth

to our city, which may be missed by some today, but it will be

treasured by future generations.”

Of the last two years, Mitchell says it has been “an absolute

rollercoaster” of the unexpected, both good and bad.

“Who would have thought that out of the first Covid

lockdown that everything would take off. We’re now having

to deal with challenges that we haven’t in the past, such as

very lengthy wait times for common materials. But these are

just the normal curveballs from the industry that you never

see coming. This is what keeps the construction industry

interesting and one of the many reasons I love it.”

What’s on for the year ahead (aside from getting further

stuck in on the Akaroa site)?

“This year we have in construction a dentistry and a church,

which we’re really looking forward to taking shape on site,”

says Mitchell.

“We’re privileged to work with many great clients and find

we all have so much fun that we often end up doing multiple

projects over time with the same clients. In design we’re

currently working on a highly detailed bach for some clients

we have done a few projects for over the recent years.”

Making space

Written by 30 leading women architects, historians and academics and including

more than 500 women in New Zealand architecture, Elizabeth Cox’s impressive new tome

Making Space is a long-overdue kickstart for the country’s architectural rhetoric.


ABOVE: The interior of St John’s Anglican Church in Wakefield, designed by Marianne Reay in 1846.

Feature | Magazine 27

“From the very earliest days there were South Island women architects. In just the years

from 1900 to 1940, so really early on, I can name quite a few who made notable contributions

to the field from Christchurch in particular, but also Invercargill, Nelson and Dunedin…”

Elizabeth, how and why did Making Space come about?

I started the project by looking into the life of Lucy Greenish,

who was the first woman to register as an architect in New

Zealand, which happened during the First World War. She

was from Wellington and had an amazing life.

As I found out more about her I also found the names of

other women, and from there the project just got bigger

and bigger.

I was originally thinking that I would just write about the

women working in the field of architecture up until the

Second World War, but when I found a publisher for the

book, she asked me to come right up to the present day. This

made the project much bigger, but it allowed me to connect

these historic women with the women working today.

I’m an architectural historian who had also trained in

women’s history, so this project was the perfect combination

of my two interests.

How long did it take to write and put together?

I think it was about four years. I was really lucky because, as

the project grew, a number of other women agreed to write

chapters for the book, including architects, academics and

other historians like me.

In the end there were 30 women authors in the book,

and it was so much better for the collaboration. Quite a

few of the chapters were by architects writing about their

peers – such as Min Hall, a very influential architect who

had been based in Nelson and has designed a number of

sustainable buildings, wrote about her work and those of

others in her field.

What were some of the biggest challenges, rewards,


One of the best rewards for me was getting to interview

some really amazing women who told me some great stories

about their experiences in training to be architects and their

careers. It was a real pleasure.

Another was discovering the huge variety of work that

women in architecture in New Zealand have done, in so

many fields, including urban design and planning, heritage

conservation and landscape architecture, in addition to what

we think of as ‘architecture’.

Several of the earliest female pioneers in architecture were

South Island-based, including Marianne Reay, Kate Beath,

Florence Field (that house is a few houses over from my

childhood home in Nelson where my parents still live, so

interesting to learn about it!)...

From the very earliest days there were South Island

women architects. In just the years from 1900 to 1940, so

really early on, I can name quite a few who made notable

contributions to the field from Christchurch in particular, but

also Invercargill, Nelson and Dunedin, and some went to the

United Kingdom to train and succeeded over there.

Even earlier than those women was Marianne Reay, who

designed the lovely St John’s Church in Wakefield, near

Nelson. She was married to one of the Church Missionary

Society missionaries and designed the church for the local

congregation in Wakefield in 1846. She wasn’t in any way a

qualified architect, and is unlikely to have designed any other

buildings, but it is a very precious place. St John’s is the oldest

church in the South Island.

Skipping forward a few decades, New Zealand’s first actual

qualified architect, Kate Beath (who was Kate Shepherd’s

niece), was also a South Islander.

She was trained by Samuel Hurst Seager, one of

Christchurch’s most notable architects, and completed her

training in 1908. Seager also trained Alison Sleigh (later

Shepherd) in the 1920s, who subsequently went to the

United Kingdom and worked with architect Elisabeth Scott

on the Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, which is

considered the first important work in Britain to have been

designed by a woman architect.

In the 1930s, a number of women trained to be

architects, including Margaret Hamilton (later Munro)

designed lots of houses in Christchurch as well as buildings

for St Andrew’s College.

Elsewhere, as you mentioned, Florence Field, who trained

to be an architect in the 1910s, designed an amazing house

in Nelson in the 1920s for her father, who was the MP for

Nelson. The house was featured in a ladies’ magazine; the

article describes the kitchen in minute detail. She designed

it with the idea of making it a better and safer place for

women to work, at a time when housework was dangerous

and unpleasant.

One of the most fascinating people we wrote about was

Monica Ford (later Barham) who was trained by her father,

Invercargill architect Allan Ford, and then set up a practice

with her husband Cecil designing hundreds of houses and

churches all around Otago and Southland. We were lucky to

get the assistance of Monica’s family in writing about

her work.

And skipping ahead to today, there are so many women

working in the South Island doing amazing work, many of

whom are directors of their own firms. For some reason

there is a really strong cluster of women architects working

in Otago, Wānaka and Queenstown Lakes District – such

as Louise Wright (Assembly Architects), Anne Salmond

(Salmond Architecture), Stacey Farrell, Sarah Scott (Condon

Scott Architects), Anna-Marie Chin, Mary Jowett, Bronwen

Kerr (Kerr Ritchie), Sîan Taylor (Team Green Architects) and

Andrea Bell (of Bell + Co in Dunedin). And these are just the

directors of firms, there are heaps of others working in those

firms and lots of others.

And then again in the Christchurch earthquake rebuild,

female architects/designers were instrumental…

They certainly were, in fact there were so many we had

a whole chapter just about women’s crucial role in the

rebuild of Christchurch, written by architectural historian

Jessica Halliday.

She wrote about the role of women in the rebuild,

highlighting in particular the women artists and advisors

from Matapopore, the organisation of Māori experts that

provided advice on embedding Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Ngāi Tahu

values into rebuild projects.

The number of women architects in Christchurch

has increased out of sight in the last decade or so, such

as Vanessa Carswell, first as Warren and Mahoney and

now at Jasmax leading the way on some amazing heritage

restoration projects, including the Isaac Theatre Royal and

then St Andrew’s Chapel, Maria Chen at Athfields and Fiona

Short and Hayley Fisher at Warren and Mahoney. Many, such

as Kate Sullivan, are also leading their own practices with

multiple staff.

Could you touch on a few pre-eminent South Island

wāhine Māori who have significantly contributed to our


The book took special care to highlight the careers of lots of

Māori women working in architecture and urban design.

The chapter about the reconstruction of Christchurch

highlighted the work of wāhine Māori such as Keri Whaitiri

(Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu) who was a crucial part

of the city’s recovery plan as a cultural design consultant

for Matapopore Trust, and has engaged in architecture,

installation art and landscape architecture. She has now

extended her consultancy to Ōtepoti Dunedin, where

she works with Ngāi Tahu’s Aukaha service, and for the

Waihōpai Rūnaka in Southland.

Another is Louise Wright (Te Arawa, Tuwharetoa,

Rongowhakaata, Te Aitanga-ā-Māhaki, Te Aitanga-ā-Hauiti)

whose firm Assembly Architects is based in Arrowtown and

does some really amazing work.

How much do you think things have levelled up for

female architects in New Zealand in 2023?

The number of registered architects in New Zealand

who are women still remains surprisingly low – only 27

percent of registered architects are women, even though

the graduates from the university architecture schools have

been roughly equal for more than 15 years.

So there is still a long way to go before equality within the

profession. But this number belies the number of women

within the profession and those involved in the wider

profession and their influence – as hopefully this book helps

Flower power

Christchurch-based florist Alexandra Valle of The Flower Press

shares some trade secrets to try at home.


You’ll need sharp scissors or secateurs, a vase/vessel filled with water,

chicken wire and/or a flower frog (kenzan), a selection of flowers and

foliage and a clear workspace, ideally with natural light and time to design.

Choose your vessel. You don’t have to use a traditional vase to arrange

flowers in – a breakfast bowl is actually a great size for creating a table

centrepiece. Second-hand shops are also great for finding interesting vessels.

Collect your flowers and foliage. Take a jar/bucket of water and some

sharp snips and wander around your garden. Cut the flowers/foliage low to

give you plenty of stem length and put them straight into water. If your garden

is lacking in flora choice you might want to go foraging for some stems or

picking from a local grower (such as Christchurch’s Moon River Flower Farm)

or even purchasing from the supermarket. If you’re picking your own flowers,

early morning or evening is best for freshness.

When selecting flowers and foliage for design, I find it easiest to think of

the ‘four Fs’. Foliage, filler, focal and floaty. I recommend choosing one to

three varieties for each element.

Foliage is self-explanatory, but if you’re not a big greenery fan consider

choosing flowering foliage for this element.

Filler: these flowers are not the

stars of the show but help to fill out

the arrangement. Choose colours

that will support your focal flowers.

Choosing taller stems for this element

can add interesting lines to a design.

Focal flowers are just that, they

are usually the more dramatic and

beautiful flowers. They will draw your

eye in a design, so placement of these

needs added consideration.

Finally, and my favourite step, is

to add the floaty flowers. These sit

above the other elements and create

a sense of whimsy in a design.

Prepare your stems. Remove any

thorns, any damaged petals and make

sure all greenery that will sit below

the water line is removed.

Prepare your vessel with a flower

frog at the base and/or a pillow of

chicken wire that will provide support

for your stems in the arrangement.

You may need to tape over the top of

the vessel to keep the wire position.

Give yourself time and a clear

space to make your arrangement. I

find working in natural light best for

floral design. Turn on some music you

love and take your time with your

arrangement – literally stop and smell

the roses, appreciate the miracle of

mother nature.

Arrange by working through the

four elements with your selected

ingredients, placing and repositioning

as necessary. If you’re unsure of the

result, take five minutes and come

back to it, or take a photograph

of it. I find this most helpful if I’m

unsure if something is quite right.

Most of all – enjoy the process and

trust your creativity.

Top up your finished arrangement

with water and place in a position you

can enjoy it.

A fresh start

Have a blank canvas or a room that

needs a touch of life? Add Foliage

plants to your home or office to create

a calming, relaxed environment.

By selecting a few air-purifying plants

with different leaf patterns & green

foliage, you can create your

own stylish wilderness to

escape too.

Remaking history

Careful and clever renovations ensured this 1880s house not

only escaped being knocked down or becoming home to

livestock, but also earned it multiple prestigious awards.



t’s hard to believe this grand homestead could have ended up housing livestock

instead of being lovingly restored.

Co-owner Gloria Hurst says previous generations looked at different options for

the Papakaio, North Otago, property. One was to knock it down and rebuild. Another

was to store grain upstairs and pigs below.

“It was just a general feeling at that time. Where do you start with an old building

like this?”

Home | Magazine 39

“We’ve bridged the old and the new so the old home is still

very much as it was but it’s been totally refurbished."

“And to be fair, the only reason we have our historic

precinct [in Oamaru] is because there was no money to

knock the buildings over. It was a different time.”

Not only did the farmhouse survive, it recently gained

a sympathetic extension – a two-year project that earned

Roger Gilchrist Building Services the Renovation Over

$1.5million and Supreme Renovation of the Year categories at

the southern Master Builders House of the Year Awards.

Willow Park homestead was built in 1880 by Scottish

immigrants Donald and Jessie Borrie, whose family of eight

children had outgrown a small stone cottage on the property

dating back to 1865. Archie and Jessie Hurst bought the home

in 1928. Their grandson, former All Black Ian Hurst and wife

Gloria took over in 1977.

“It was old and cold but we could see potential,” Gloria

recalls. “So we rolled up our sleeves and room by room, we

painted and papered.”

Another renovation followed in the early 1990s, with the

most recent one overseen by architect Ian Perry. Family

members were also involved: Sean Dixon, of Design Squared

Landscape Architects, came up with the initial design and

Jade Hurst of Good Space was responsible for the interiors.

Roger Gilchrist says the biggest challenge was carefully

demolishing the interior of the homestead, which had

exterior and internal walls constructed from Oamaru stone

blocks. All the internal walls and ceilings were covered in lath

and plaster and there were timber tongue and groove floors

on both levels.

“Basically all the internal walls upstairs and downstairs

were removed, including the old Oamaru stone chimneys to

below floor level. New walls were then constructed, along

with four large steel portal frames, which were bolted to the

outside stone walls to brace the existing homestead. [These

are now] hidden.”

Architraves, skirting boards, windows and doors were

made to match the existing ones, with the addition of

double glazing.

They also removed all the Welsh slates from the roof,

before straightening the roof framing and rebuilding the

chimney structure. The roof is now a combination of those

“It’s always been a place for all the generations to come and recharge

and I’m sure that will continue into the future."

slates that were still in good condition and recycled slate from

demolished Christchurch buildings.

In the lounge, a section of original stone was retained and

glassed over to showcase the craft of the original builders.

The refurbished home has three living areas and eight

bedrooms and ensuites. Before, there were four bedrooms,

so it was “a bit of a squash” when their three adult children

and eight grandchildren returned home, Gloria says.

There are also lots of spaces where different generations

can “sit around and talk and find solutions for the future”.

“We’ve bridged the old and the new so the old home is

still very much as it was but it’s been totally refurbished. Then

we’ve put on a new kitchen, living room, games room and

patio area. That’s where we were able to really lighten things

up with glass on the roof and big doors to outside.”

“We’ve also future-proofed her. She’s not going to fall over

and she’s warm and solid and she’ll be fine now for another

100 years without anybody having to worry too much about

leaking roofs or rotting floorboards.”

Despite nothing being level, square or built as first thought,

their builder remained calm, she adds.

“I’m sure he went home every night scratching his head

because there was so much problem-solving involved but he

never showed that to the rest of us. Roger and all those who

worked with him are the masters of this project and we’re

just lucky enough to live in what they created.”

Set on a sheep and beef farm 20 minutes drive from

Oamaru, the homestead is surrounded by a large expanse of

lawn, ponds and gardens with some of the trees planted by

the Borries more than 150 years ago.

Gloria says they lived off site during the two-year renovation

and returned with a renewed love for the property.

“It’s always been a place for all the generations to come and

recharge and I’m sure that will continue into the future.”

Colour me good

Interior designer and The Block NZ co-host Shelley Ferguson on

understanding colour, and how best to use it in your home.


Interiors | Magazine 43

“Colour is a personal, emotional,

exciting and truly transformative

element of interior design."


Colour is a personal, emotional, exciting and truly transformative

element of interior design. It has a language of its own,

communicating a look and feel without the use of words. You

can use energetic, bright, contrasting colour palettes cleverly

combined, or use colour to create a calm and soft scheme.

Pay attention to the colours you naturally gravitate towards.

While you don’t need to be a colour theory genius like Aristotle,

you will benefit from a few spins around the colour wheel

(a handy tool developed by Sir Isaac Newton that shows the

relationship between colours).

Knowing the basic colour groups is also useful, especially when

creating a custom-coloured paint or fabric. The primary colours

are red, blue and yellow. They can’t be made from mixing other

colours. The secondary colours are orange, purple and green.

They can be made by mixing the primary colours together. The

tertiary colours are red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, bluegreen,

blue-violet and red-violet – the six shades that can be made

from mixing primary and secondary colours.

Once you’re familiar with the colour groups it’s fun to flip

through a fan deck and see how paint brands have created

different colours from the same family using the addition of

neutrals (e.g. primary blue becomes navy blue, classic blue, light

blue). This realisation of how you can create new colours by

adding neutrals is a powerful addition to your design arsenal, as

while you may not be a fan of primary blue, a dusky grey-blue may

become one of your signature go-tos.

And remember: tint makes a paint lighter by adding white; shade

darkens a paint by adding black; tone slightly darkens a colour by

adding grey.

Colour schemes

Complementary colours are any two colours that

are directly opposite each other on the colour

wheel, such as red and green, orange and blue, and

yellow and purple. They should probably be called

opposing colours because they are completely

different to one another, create maximum

contrast, and are perfect if you want a bold,

clashing, unique interior.

Analogous colours are any three colours that

are side by side on a 12-part colour wheel, such as

yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange. As in many

close friendships, one of the three colours usually

tries to dominate! The result is a tonal interior –

imagine soft blues and greens in a coastal home, or

terracotta and mustard in a bohemian home.

While many think monochrome refers to black

and white, it’s actually variations of the same colour.

I love this type of colour palette, as you can play

with just one colour family to create a powerful

visual effect on a room with graduating tones. I liken

this colour palette to looking at a mountain valley

for greens, or the ocean for blues – you’ll always

find several tones of the same colour and the effect

is serene and restful.

Understanding undertones

Ahhh, undertones. Just when you think you’ve

painted the walls in the perfect white, a sneaky

yellow colour comes through when you put your

grey chairs against it.

Simply speaking, there are two types of

undertone: cool and warm. If you are doing an

interior with blue, grey, black, purple or green as

features, the paints will need a cool undertone, i.e.,

those that have had black added. If you are doing an

interior featuring shades of yellow, orange or red,

you will need a warm undertone, i.e., paints that

have had yellow added.

Always have a fan deck on hand as the undertone

is written on the back of each paint swatch.

“Mother Nature is the ultimate colour

expert, so start to notice the colour values

of the outside world in your everyday life

– consider it free colour training!"

Three tips for using colour

1. Use a colour wheel

It helps to understand how colours work together, the

effect they have on a room and mood, and how to

use them to achieve the style you want. One of the

principles of interior design is harmony, and colour plays

a big part in this.

If you walk into a room and the colour scheme is

made up of colours that don’t have a relationship to

each other, the result will be less harmonious and more

chaotic. This is great if you want an enlivening and unique

look – there are some incredible designers who mix

clashing bright and bold patterns to wow effect. But if

you want the room to feel calming, the room reveal is

not going to go well for you!

To learn about colour, play around with a colour

wheel. A colour wheel shows one colour’s relationship

to another and helps us observe the effect colours have

on one another. You can pick one of these up from your

local Resene ColorShop.

2. Use the 60, 30, 10 trick

If you’re struggling to work out how to distribute your

colour palette around the house or room, try this trick.

Use the hue that you want to dominate for 60 percent

of the room; the secondary colour for 30 percent of the

room, to provide visual interest; and the final colour for

10 percent, to sprinkle on some wow factor.

Let’s say your colour palette is white, blue and brass.

That could translate to 60 percent white (all of the

walls plus a chair and duvet cover), 30 percent blue

(headboard, cushions, quilt, artwork, accessories) and 10

percent brass (furniture legs, light fittings, candlesticks).

This way the colours are applied in a nice rhythm around

the room.





3. Use nature as inspiration

Mother Nature is the ultimate colour expert, so start

to notice the colour values of the outside world in your

everyday life – consider it free colour training! Think of

the four seasons as examples – mustards, terracotta and

the earthy tones of autumn make a warm and restful

theme. Soft pinks, saffron yellow and warm white are

uplifting and inspired by spring. Blue, white and sandy

tones are a summer classic and why ‘coastal’ is a popular

interior style. Winter colours are intense blacks, greys,

white and cool blues.

renowned for its fabulous green spaces, history and fantastic dining and shopping options.

Banbury Park is a modern and stylish Lifestyle Village

encompassed by premium service and state-of-the-art

facilities, offering a relaxing atmosphere, convenient location

Aotearoa including Alpine View and Burlington in

Christchurch, and Coastal View in Nelson. Qestral believes

in a unique retirement experience that combines the very

best in independent living with safe-guarded health.

Spanning 13.6 hectares within the fast-growing Halswell

area, Banbury Park offers lush gardens, unique sculptural

features and state-of-the-art landscaping.

and spa, cinema, bar, café, bakery, gym, hair salon, wellness

centre and restaurant.

garage and one or two storey options.

Space between neighbours is prioritised, as

well as private outdoor living areas.

As time moves on and some tasks become more

challenging, there’s no reason why people shouldn’t

continue to live the life they know.

To assist with the transition process, Banbury Park

provides the ‘Butler’ package, which can be personalised

to individual needs. This package has been designed to

support confidence and independence.


Banbury Park is a new generation lifestyle village. Part of

this is incorporating new-age technology.

In 2016, in teaming up with tech entrepreneur

Christopher Dawson, Qestral was at the helm of a

cutting-edge tablet suite called Spritely. The easy-to-use

software – and winner of the 2020 New Zealand Digital

Innovation Award – is a remote healthcare monitor in

the form of a lightweight and easy to use tablet.

It keeps residents connected to neighbours and

management through video connectivity, messaging and

noticeboards. The tablet also provides weather reports,

games and other useful information.


At the Banbury Park Care Centre (currently under

construction), the aim will be to nurture a friendly, warm,

homely environment that promotes individual freedom

and security – an environment in which each person

can identify their own space and can seek privacy, or

welcome friends and family in comfort.

The care centre caters for residents who have been

assessed as requiring either rest home or hospital care. It

is integrated with all dual beds for easy transition should

their care needs change ensuring that residents will

generally continue to remain in the same room and have

access to staff members they are familiar with.

Banbury Park appreciates that every resident has

unique and different needs and chooses to take a holistic

approach to healthcare. An individualised care plan is

designed for each resident’s physical, social and emotional

well-being and is developed in consultation with the

resident, family, whānau or representative, medical and

nursing staff and other health professionals.


Banbury Park provides a wide range of activities and

events that residents are welcome to be involved in.

These are organised by full-time activities coordinators.

Alongside a full activities schedule, Banbury also hosts

and provides exciting, premium events and social clubs.

Events such as cabarets, talks from celebrity guest

speakers, gala nights, live music, cooking demonstrations

and more! Further to this, residents can join any number

of our interesting and inspirational clubs, such as the

Travel Club or Wine & Food Club.

Broaden your social horizons and enjoy peace of

mind at Banbury Park. Discover how an exceptional,

independent lifestyle in a beautiful and secure

environment can make a world of difference to

your future.

El Fresco!

The weather has been a little unpredictable throughout the country

so far this summer but February is often the most settled of the

summer months, providing plenty more opportunities for outdoor

entertaining. Just last night we had a spontaneous gathering with

friends, where a huge number of pizzas were cooked to perfection

using a wood-fired Maximus Prime and it reminded me what a

wonderful focal point pizza ovens are for entertaining.

Pizza ovens have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years and provide

a unique addition to the outdoor dining experience. Wood-fired ovens

have been present since the dawn of civilisation, and the perfectly

preserved ovens from the ruins of Pompeii are not so differently

designed from the brick pizza ovens popping up in many backyards

across Canterbury.


Pizza ovens are fantastic at churning out perfectly crispy pizzas in mere

minutes, making it an ideal way to efficiently cater for large numbers. It

also becomes a very socially interactive way of food preparation, with

minimal dishes to wash afterwards. Everyone from old to young, can

be involved in building their perfect pizza, side by side. Another huge

advantage of a pizza oven is its versatility, in addition to pizza, bread can

be baked, vegetables roasted and large cuts of meat slow-cooked as

embers die down, all infused with a lovely smoky flavour. Pretty much

anything you can do in a conventional indoor oven, you can do in a pizza

oven. Guests with specific dietary requirements can be catered for with

greater ease than with the traditional ‘meat on the BBQ’ gathering. Your

vegetarian and vegan friends won’t be relegated to the salad and breadonly

option nearly so swiftly! A pizza cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven

also retains more nutrients and antioxidants due to the faster cooking

time as well as enhanced flavour- the delicious smokiness is impossible

to replicate.


by Goom

The warmth emanating from a wood-fired pizza oven extends the

use of your outdoor area throughout the chilly months by providing a

wonderful heat source. The ambience created by a ‘real fire’ will draw

guests in and create a cosy convivial atmosphere.


Many ovens are stand-alone, meaning they can be easily incorporated

into an existing established outdoor space. However, there are also

options which can be included in an outdoor kitchen design to create

a seamless visual impact. There is a vast array of designs to suit every

style, budget and landscape. From the old-world feel of a brick-domed

traditional pizza oven to a bespoke modern concrete shuttered oven or

an easily movable sleek steel oven (such as the locally made Flaxton Fire

a firm favourite of our team), the options are endless.

A focal point

A pizza oven creates a focal point in your outdoor space but its benefits are

not limited to your own home. At your bach or holiday home, the ritual of

lighting the fire in the oven and prepping the pizza toppings will help you hit

‘relax mode’. For those who rent out their bach on a site such as Book-abach,

a pizza oven is a feature which can distinguish their property from

others. In a commercial setting, a pizza oven in the workplace provides a

great alternative to after works drinks inside the office.

Wood-fired pizza ovens offer so much more than creating perfect

pizzas for your family and friends. Call the team at Goom Landscapes

today to discuss the best pizza oven for your needs and property.

Deliciously affordable meal inspiration to kickstart you into the new year.

Central Otago sights and bites

The tagline might be “the road less travelled” but for those in the

know there’s no better way to travel from Dunedin to Central Otago

than over what’s now known as the Central Otago Touring Route –

especially in a Tesla.



kay, so it went like this – would you like to drive through Central Otago in a Tesla while

stopping off to enjoy some of the region’s best food and wine?

A stronger person than I might have demurred, but it is the sort of opportunity that does not

come your way very often, so I accepted.

The proposal was made even better by the direction to travel the Central Otago Touring

Route – my favourite way to travel to Central Otago. The expansive blue skies, craggy rock

Travel | Magazine 53

“The expansive blue skies, craggy rock outcrops and soaring hills made

famous by Grahame Sydney paintings, as well as the relatively empty

roads, make taking this route a no-brainer.”

outcrops and soaring hills made famous by Grahame Sydney

paintings, as well as the relatively empty roads, make taking

this route a no-brainer.

It also seems appropriate to be driving an electric car –

not adding noise or other pollution – through this beautiful

landscape, along a similar path to the Central Otago Rail Trail.

If you’re an EV or Tesla-novice, it pays to have spent some

time researching the operating instructions of the Tesla (it has

a few quirks) before you pick it up. It is also a good idea to

work out where the charging stations are, and how to charge,

to avoid “range phobia”.

Happily though, the car can do the maths for you and will

tell you if you have enough range to get where you are going

once you put your destination into its GPS.

Luckily there are no shortage of conveniently-placed fast

(the most time-efficient way to charge) charging stations along

the route at Middlemarch, Ranfurly, Ōmakau and Alexandra.

Once we picked up the Tesla, a model 3 with a range of up

to 400km on a single charge, tested our research on how to

unlock the doors and operate the touch-screen, we packed

the surprisingly deep and large boot with our overnight bags

and headed out (there is also a “frunk”, aka a front boot, for

those spill-over purchases).

We were headed for Waipiata and the local pub for

lunch, so the trip gave us the perfect opportunity to get to

grips with sensitive handling of the Tesla and operating things

like the heating and air conditioning and sound system, all

from the touch-screen (best left to the passenger rather than

the driver).

Our timing could not have been better as Central Otago’s

popular Eat Taste Central promotion was still on, allowing

us to taste some specially created dishes that showcase the

wonderful produce from the region.

So at lunch it was one of Waipiata pub’s famous pies, the

‘Hogburn River Pie’, featuring locally grown slow-cooked

beef and pinot noir, as well as their version of an all-day

breakfast, ‘The Davy Jones’, a towering burger made with

local eggs and chutney.

With the afternoon at our disposal we decided to tour

around some of our favourite spots, stopping in Ranfurly for

a coffee while we gave the car a top up (range phobia got to

us!) and then heading to Naseby to have a look through the

“At lunch it was one of

Waipiata pub’s famous

pies, featuring locally

grown slow-cooked

beef and pinot noir, as

well as their version of

an all-day breakfast, a

towering burger made

with local eggs and


popular Stardust Gallery. Unfortunately we were way too full

to contemplate a visit to the Black Forest Cafe, which is under

new management.

Instead we decided to head to St Bathans for a walk

around the Blue Lake before rewarding ourselves with a cold

beverage at the Vulcan Hotel. The small village was humming

with visitors enjoying the lake, with a few hardy souls even

dipping a toe or two in.

As time was marching on we headed to our destination

for the night, the quaint township of Ophir, and Pitches Store.

The store was originally built in 1863 and in 2006 was bought

by Colleen Hurd and renovated, retaining historical features

wherever possible while providing luxury touches for guests.

We were lucky enough to enjoy chef Susan Goodwin’s

Provenance lamb loin dish, which won Eat Taste Central’s

main meal section of the competition. Goodwin also received

highly commended in the chef section.

The next day we headed through to Clyde where we

checked in (and dropped off the car) at another historic

homestead –- this time Hartley Homestead, built around the

early 1900s by Jack Waldron as part of Molyneux Orchards.

It is now a lovingly renovated B&B hosted by former

Aucklander Euan Mackenzie, who the next day showed he

was very handy in the kitchen when it came to breakfasts –

lovely, light fruit-filled crepes for us and a cooked breakfast for

fellow guests.

There is never any shortage of things to do in Clyde.

We had the opportunity to take a peek at the Eden Hore

Central Otago Collection, which was on display at the Clyde

Historical Museum, before having lunch at Dunstan House

Cafe. where we tried its beetroot and feta burger.

Luckily for us, that weekend was also hosting the Alexandra

Basin Winegrowers New Release Tasting event, which gives

wine lovers a chance to chat with wine growers about their

season and the wines they produce, as well as taste the new

season’s releases. This year there was also the chance to hear

American Rex Pickett, author of the novel Sideways, speak

about his time in New Zealand.

It was a sold-out crowd in the event’s new venue of the

old Clyde railway station and there were plenty of wines to

choose from, from Three Miners’ Rocker Box rosé and Grey

Ridge’s Alchemy white pinot noir to Two Paddocks pinot noir

and Immigrants’ Ruru Gewürztraminer.

After an afternoon of tastings, a quiet dinner was in

order at the Post Office Cafe where we again got to try the

region’s lamb.

The following day it was time to head home, but not before

we got to extend our electric vehicle knowledge even more

with a blat around Highlands Motor Park’s track in its electric

sportscar, the Porsche Taycan – going from zero to 100 in 2.4

seconds, a feeling I can best describe as like being dropped

from a free fall tower at an amusement park. There’s a reason

the driver makes sure your head is back against the seat

before he accelerates.

After a quick trip to Highland’s toilets with a view – each

toilet is creatively decorated and has a one-way window so you

can see the track – I then recovered with a restorative coffee

and brioche lamb sandwich at Highlands cafe before we hit the

road again – with a quick look to see where the next charging

station was, aware that unlike petrol rental cars, you only need

to return an electric with 20 percent power. Another bonus.

The writer was hosted by Central Otago Tourism and GO Rentals.

ith over ten years’ experience in food writing

and hospo, I’ve made a profession in cooking

for both media and restaurant dining settings. I was

crazy enough to train as a chef while also studying

an undergrad bachelor’s degree in media, writing and

anthropology. In my time I have worked as a chef,

consultant, recipe developer, food editor, writer, food

stylist, podcaster and TV and video producer.

I have worked as a chef all over Australia, even

working at the Google Australia restaurant before

making the cross into food media. This experience in

the kitchen and on the pass makes me the chef and

cook I am today.

I can also thank my time on the pans for my

understanding of food from different cultures, a

testament to the multitude of chefs I’ve had the

privilege of working alongside – in this profession it’s the

ability to share knowledge that sets a chef apart from

the rest and I’ve been blessed with some incredible

teachers. For anyone out there thinking about becoming

a chef, it truly opens up a whole world of possibilities!

I got my start in publishing working at the Australian

Women’s Weekly test kitchens, then moved on to

Donna Hay, where I got to work on my first cookbook.

From there I applied and got a position on the food

team for delicious magazine Australia, and worked my

way up to assistant food editor.

It was here on this incredibly skilled and experienced

small team I had opportunities to travel and learn

from some of the best in food media, and to craft my

skills in all things food editing, styling and writing.

Since leaving that role I’ve worked for myself in a

freelance capacity. I’ve worked as a food producer on

TV shows, travelled overseas for food festivals, assisted

on TV segments, written recipes for publications,

food-styled and directed videos, starred in how-to

videos, started my own podcast and worked on

cookbooks for other amazing foodies.

I’m known for recipes that work, that are complex in

flavour and simple in execution. It all comes back to this.

These recipes are all about letting the veggies shine.

There could easily be more than three recipes but I

chose three of the best to show off just how damn

magical vegetables are. Please be upstanding for these

three legends: corn, eggplant and cauliflower. May they

always be tender and coated in tasty things.

Salt and vin chips are the ultimate crunch-addition to

this eggplant. Once you pop you will not stop. I could

definitely eat two of these myself easily – but one per

person is probably a normal-person portion, or a good

side/share plate for two to four people.

Gluten free | Serves 2

Preparation 5 mins | Cook 30 mins

2 eggplants, halved lengthways

½ tsp flaky salt

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon gochujang paste*

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 handful of salt and vinegar chips

chopped chives, thinly sliced red chilli, steamed rice and

green thangs, like mesclun lettuce and stray herbs you want

to get rid of, to serve

*specialty ingredient

Gochujang is a fermented Korean chilli paste that is

balanced with sweetness. Found in any good Asian grocer.

Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Grease and line a baking

tray with baking paper.

Score the inside flesh of each eggplant half with a knife 1cm

deep in a criss-cross pattern. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle

with oil. Massage into flesh, then place cut side down on

prepared baking tray.

Bake for 20 minutes or until flesh is softened and the cut

side is slightly golden.

Meanwhile, combine maple, gochujang, vinegar and

sesame oil.

Flip cooked eggplant and spoon over glaze mixture to coat.

Turn oven to grill on high and cook sauce side up for 10

minutes, or until golden and gnarly.

Crunch up chips and scatter over eggplant. Top with chives,

chilli and green thangs. Serve hawt with steamed rice.

Spice it up

Sub the gochujang for miso, sriracha or even hoisin for a

change in spicery.

Jazz it up

Slice and serve in a bowl with steamed short grain rice,

edamame, corn, shaved radish and thinly sliced spring onion

for a glazed-eggplant donburi bowl.

Looking veg-forward

Christchurch foodie Sam Parish serves up three delicious meat-free

recipes from her playful new cookbook Cook Me.



I should have called these swarm cobs. Cos once they’re finished with grated parmesan,

watch as people swarm! Such a simple combo of flavours and a classic on any Mexican menu.

These cobs of glory are a welcome treat to have at home. I just love how they get to have a little soak

in the ‘bath’ (read sink) first – trust me, it helps with steaming.

Gluten free | Serves 4–6 as a side | Preparation 10 mins | Cook 45 mins

6 whole corns, husks intact

⅔ cup (160ml) mayo

1 tablespoon sriracha

½ teaspoon smoked paprika, plus extra to serve

finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime

50g finely grated parmesan or pecorino

½ bunch coriander, leaves picked

finely sliced chives, to serve

Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced.

Submerge corn in water in a large pot or in a clean sink for 10

minutes to soak.

Transfer corn to a tray and bake, husk and all, for 45 minutes

or until corn is tender and husks are darkened slightly.

Combine mayo, sriracha, paprika and lime zest and juice.

Remove corn and carefully pull down the husks. Transfer to a

tray and add mayo, then shake to coat. Grate over parmesan

and scatter with paprika and herbs. Serve hot!

Meat lovers

Finely dice some chorizo and cook it off in a pan, then spoon

over the corn.

Heat ghee or butter in a wide saucepan or deep-sided frypan over medium

heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add ginger and

garlic and spice mix and cook for a further 1–2 minutes, or until aromatic

minutes, or until reduced slightly. Stir through lemon juice to taste. Add

roasted cauliflower.

Serve with naan and steamed rice alongside.

Sub the cream for cashew cream and boom! She’s vegan.

Meat lovers

I throw no judgement if you feel like throwing some chicken in with the

cauliflower and adding it to the sauce. I totally get that sometimes we

want a little chicken in our butter… chicken.

Preheat oven to 210°C fan forced. Line

a baking tray with baking paper and

drizzle with oil.

Put cauliflower pieces onto prepared

tray cut side down. Season with salt and

pepper. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until

golden and slightly charred.

Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for

the spice mix in a small bowl.

Aussie rules

Brown Brothers is the

a delicious example of

why. Grown in the cool

climate and fertile soil of

the King Valley, creating

outstanding prosecco, the

grapes are picked early to

retain the high acidity and

crisp flavour. The wine is

straw-like in colour with

subtle green hues, has a

the freshness and vibrancy

that prosecco is known

for and has a beautiful

savoury edge on the

palate. A truly refreshing

sparkling wine, it’s made

to drink now while light

and fresh.

Modern makeover

Situated at the foot of the

Kintyre peninsula in the

region of Campbeltown,

Glen Scotia has had a

bit of a makeover of

late with the release

of three impressive

new expressions. The

‘Double Cask’ is finished

in a selection of first

fill bourbon and Pedro

Ximenez sherry casks.

The nose is an intriguing

combination of rich fudge,

fresh orchard fruit and a

sort of dusty earthy note

that is quite typical of

the distillery. Oily on the

palate with rich vanilla and

more fudge, it has a slight

briny character with a

touch of warming spiced

fruit developing.

Unsettling landscapes

New Zealand’s national museum Te Papa’s exhibition Hiahia Whenua - Landscape and Desire

features some rarely seen works with close links to Otago and Southland.


Selected works of significant artists such as Shona Rapira-

Davies, William Hodges, Shane Cotton, Tony De Lautour

and others being exhibited at Te Papa all have one thing in

common – a southern connection.

Their works are part of 24 being exhibited as Hiahia

Whenua - Landscape and Desire, which showcases rarely seen

colonial landscapes alongside contemporary works addressing

issues around and from colonialism.

Te Papa curator of historical art Rebecca Rice has wanted

to show some of the collection’s historical landscapes for

some time but was unsure of how they could be presented in

the 21st century.

“I was very conscious that visitors like to see them but it

needed to be thought through very carefully.”

Together with Megan Tamati-Quennell, curator of modern

and contemporary Māori and indigenous art, they decided to

show the historical landscapes alongside contemporary works.

“There is a little bit of a tension in that the historical works

“It’s really saying, actually often these beautiful

landscapes do not reflect what’s going on socially or

politically, and didn’t have that kind of commentary,

so he adds it in, often in a humorous way.”

are saying one thing and the contemporary, kind of, either

echoing that, or referencing it, in a different way, or shifting

what is being said. It’s a nice dynamic.”

Rebecca, who is from Dunedin, says it is that tension

between landscape and whenua, the very different ways

of thinking of the natural world, that is at the crux of

the exhibition.

It was a deliberate move to exclude “modern” works from

the exhibition.

“It is not about McCahon discovering the New Zealand

landscape and finding the essence of it. Contemporary

artists we engage with are looking back to the historical

landscape and thinking about the way that land was

encountered and that people tried to settle it, fought over it,

use it, make a commercial gain through farming or forestry.”

Megan says the contemporary works complicate the image

of New Zealand’s colonial landscapes.

“There are many ways to think about land – its value, its

ownership, and how it can be lost, sold or stolen.

“During the colonial period we often speak of Europeans

as ‘settling’ the land. These contemporary works ‘unsettle’

the landscape, revealing complexity and conflict below

the surface.”

A work by Christchurch artist Tony De Lautour is based

on a painting he found in a Lake Wakatipu junk shop and

revisioned. He talks about colonial artists recording landscapes

as places ready for occupation and to be used, Megan says.

“He talks about refilling empty stages with characters,

slightly darker, kookier characters from our past, heraldic lions

holding guns, throwing little New Zealands into the water.

“It’s really talking about not only landscape but what is going

on in terms of that colonial process and really saying, actually

often these beautiful landscapes do not reflect what’s going on

socially or politically, and didn’t have that kind of commentary,

so he adds it in, often in a humorous way.”

They have also included works that are not landscape

paintings such as Matt Pine’s “F” series, which are minimalist

sculptural impressions of Gate Pa reflecting on the Land Wars

but not in a way that is “hard”.

Pine started the works, made from grey PVC pipe, in 1977

70 Magazine | Arts

but it was while he was the Frances Hodgkins Fellow that he

evolved them further and they were shown in his Dunedin

studio for the first time.

“It’s the original grey pipe. It’s like a line drawing in space

in a way. He’s interested in fortification, pa sites, how early

earthworks changed the landscape they lived in. You can still

see them in the landscape today. He’s a very interesting artist.”

Rebecca says the conversation begins with William Hodges’

1776 ‘Waterfall in Dusky Bay with Māori canoe’, which is the

earliest painting of a New Zealand landscape that Te Papa has

in its collection and it has only been shown at the gallery once

before since it was purchased in 2019.

It was painted after Cook spent five weeks in Dusky

Sound, as it was then known, making repairs to their ship

and mapping the area. Hodges accompanied Cook on his

exploration of the Sound and painted a view up one of the

arms of Tamatea with the Southern Alps in the distance.

“It is a beautiful view up. The artist thinks in pictorial terms,

not in historical accuracy, although it is quite an accurate

picture of that site, so he’s put in a waka with a family that

Cook and his crew did meet but back at their base camp, not

in the Sound.”

Megan says the work is also important for southern Māori

as the site was important for food gathering and as it was

a friendly and collegial first meeting compared to the first

encounters on the East Coast, which are believed to have

traumatised Cook’s crew on his first visit.

“So three or four years later there is a different approach.

It is a peaceful, amicable meeting and didn’t shift culturally

that much although Anne Salmond talks of Cook and his

crew putting in a garden, making beer, planting strawberries,

maybe testing, trying things out. So it’s an interesting work

for Ngāi Tahu. It was a major mahinga kai fishing ground, not

necessarily a site people lived in.”

For Megan one of the most significant artists in the exhibition

with a Dunedin connection is Shona Rapira-Davies, who studied

at the Dunedin School of Art. Her 1985 oil painting ‘Taku

whanau, Motairehe, Aotea’, was painted in Dunedin and shown

here first at the former Marshall Seifert Gallery.

“Shona’s work has not been on display since Te Papa’s been

open. The last time it was shown was in the ’80s in the old

National Art Gallery.”

While the painting is of Great Barrier Island, she was

very influenced by the work of Anna Caselberg and

Colin McCahon.

“She has riffed completely off Anna Caselberg and

McCahon’s landscape. She’s gone ‘I can paint that way, paint

the same way he does’.”

Rapira-Davies was working in Dunedin at the same time

as Jeffrey Harris and Joanna Margaret Paul, Ralph Hotere and

the Caselbergs, enjoying the collegiality of that “hotbed of

interesting people” in the arts community.

“When she went north she never found that community

again although she came back down to do a Frances

Hodgkins Fellowship.”

Rebecca says another southern historical work is George

revealing complexity and conflict below the surface.”

O’Brien’s 1870 early watercolour of Otago

Harbour. The sometime draughtsman for

architect R. A. Lawson is known for his

drawings of Dunedin buildings.

“O’Brien was influenced by the Pre-

Raphaelite movement and has that early

morning or evening dusk light when

everything comes alight with a magic glow.

In this one you see the fences delineating

the landscape, the homestead down the

valley - beginning the process of being

tamed and settled.”

The 24 artworks will be on display until

mid-2023 when a new hang will bring

additional works into the exhibition.

“It is a show that will shift over time but

the core principal will stay the same.”

artist of Samoan, Rarotongan and

Ma‘ohi Tahitian heritage. He is perhaps

best-known for his Te Papa-owned

‘corned beef tin bull’ sculpture, however

Lady Anne Glenconner

H o d d e r & S t o u g h t o n , $ 2 5

A fascinating autobiography

by Lady Anne Glenconner,

the eldest child of the Earl of

Leicester. Anne led a privileged

life, mixing with aristocratic

families and becoming friends

with the royal family. She

became lady-in-waiting to

Princess Margaret, and the two had a lifelong friendship

dating back to their childhood. The telegram in which

she was asked to be a maid of honour at Queen

Elizabeth’s coronation was a turning point in her life.

Her marriage to the eccentric and unpredictable Colin

Tennant (later Lord Glenconnor) was turbulent. They

had five children, sadly losing two adult sons. Anne spent

years nursing another son after his motorbike accident.

Upon his death in 2010, Colin left his sizable fortune

to a former employee. Anne had to resurrect herself

after this revelation. She has done so with courage and

fortitude. An amazing story of a sometimes difficult

privileged life.

I’m looking forward to reading Lady Anne’s candid

sequel of her life story, Whatever Next? Lessons from an

Unexpected Life.

Robert Harris

Penguin, $37

Robert Harris has written more than a

dozen bestsellers, with plots accurately

based on historical events in eras

ranging from Roman times to the 20th

century. Here, it is 1660. Cromwell has

been defeated and Charles II is on the

throne. Parliament has resolved to try

all signatories to the sentence of death

on Charles I. Most will be hung, drawn and quartered. Richard

Nayler has been given the responsibility of bringing all signatories

to justice, dead or alive.

Two real life regicides, Colonel Edward Whalley and son-inlaw

Colonel William Goffe, succeed in escaping England and

reaching Cambridge, north of Boston, Massachusetts and to the

care of fellow Puritan communities.

As the Royalist hunt for them intensifies they are forced north

from family to family, from bedrooms to caves and hiding holes.

Nayler has his own personal reasons for obsessively pursuing this

hunt for more than a dozen years from his office in London.

Harris describes this period in detail, the political scene on

both sides of the Atlantic, the rivalries among the Royalists, the

fates of Londoners and the Whalley/Goffe families enduring a

time of “Death, War, Famine and (awaiting) the Antichrist”.
