Food & Wine Country

West Auckland is a hidden treasure, with some of the best vineyards in New Zealand, arguably the world, clustered around State Highway 16 from Kumeu onwards.

There are also some excellent restaurants, micro breweries, specialist food stores, farmers markets, Historical Helensville, and the wild west coast with the famous Gannet Colony (where our school gets its name from).

If your'e coming out west, make a day of it! We have mapped some of the high-lights below that you can visit on your way out to our cooking school based above Maori Bay in Muriwai Beach.
