Thanks Nadia and Air New Zealand’s Kia Ora magazines

I was pretty jolly proud when both Nadia and Kia Ora magazines agreed to ‘star’ Black in their February and March issues.  Black looked pretty cool in them both and I have noticed a definite increase in sales so thank you.

Thank you to all the wonderful people out there who ordered Black too – I am sure you will be enjoying it as much as we do.  Current and new clients, thank you for your support.

With Bluff oysters out there in the shops now you should try Oysters Blackpatrick. Very finely dice shallots and prosciutto and lightly panfry with a little light oil.  Sprinkle over big, fat delicious Bluff Oysters in their shell and a dash of Black.  Pop those babies under the grill for the briefest of time, just warmed through and then devour.  One or two will never be enough.  Or in a Bloody Black Mary Oyster shooter…yum!

Easter is just around the corner and ANZAC Day too so enjoy your time off with family and friends.

Cheers, Tracey

Welcome Sous Chef Deli…

Hi folks, some wonderful news.  I would like to welcome Sous Chef online deli to my family of suppliers.  Simon and Rob tried Black and said it’s ‘amazing’…praise indeed.  Check out their website  they have some wonderful items for sale.  I am going to show restraint when I go in there to look around.

I went to the Wellington Food Show last weekend, what a great time I had.  So many different types of food and drink to try.  Not as many “gadgets” as before I thought (I love kitchen gadgets, my Achilles heel)!

Watched Simon and Rob (and a little helper from the audience) help cook some delicious food, then watched Annabelle White do what she does best (apart from cook) and that’s entertain the crowd.  She is so funny, what a great way to spend half an hour listening to her tell her stories…they are all true you know?  ;o)

I would love to know just how far I walked that day.  You don’t realise as you go around and around just how far you have walked, but that’s good because I walked off all the food and wine and vodka I just had to try!  You never know, maybe next year I might be in the Artisan Village selling Black!

Right, best I go and get my order ready to send to Sous Chef, don’t want to keep them waiting for their bottles of deliciousness!


My Blog

Hi, and welcome to my new blog and my website.

I look forward to us getting to know each other and I welcome your comments.   I hope you will share your recipes with me and mine with you.  I’m always up for new ways to use Black.

My current stockists are Bellatino’s in Havelock North, On Trays in Petone,  Moore Wilsons in Wellington and Porirua and Plimmerton Deli in Plimmerton.  If you aren’t near one of these stores you can order online.

More stockists will come in time and I will keep you posted here as to who they are and where they are.

I am so proud of my little bottle of Black and especially as both Dish and Cuisine magazines featured in their most recent publications.  My biggest issue right now is getting it to stores around New Zealand.

Here are the pics from the magazines.

Talk soon…here’s to a fantastic week.
