Impossible Burger

So here's the real reason a few journos flew to San Francisco and back from LA last week - to visit the Impossible Foods' cutting-edge Silicon Valley lab where they make delicious plant-based burgers which, as of 1 July, are being offered on Air New Zealand's Business Premier flights from LA to Auckland (hence our detour to LA to be on the inaugural flight).

Here's one of four stories I had to write from the famil (three down, one to go).

The young foodies

So San Francisco was fun and fleeting (pics to come) but I also brought back a cold, which has felled me.

So there will be pics soon of the SF/LA jaunt but in the meantime, here are a couple of stories I had in yesterday's Your Weekend Magazine. The first, about young foodie entrepreneurs and the second about acclaimed London-based Kiwi chef Anna Hansen who is coming back for this year's Visa Welly on a Plate.

Are you going to San Francisco?

Why yes, I am actually.

A last minute media trip has fallen into my lap and I am off to SF for a few nights. Has been a while since my last visit, so looking forward to reacquainting myself (the pic below is from Christmas 2010 when we flew from the UK where we were living to visit our beloved woofer Molly who had gone to live in SF with friends when we moved to the UK).

See you on the other side.

Bank of Mum and Dad

Or Bomad, as some clever dick has named it.

My story about when these scenarios go right, and when they go horribly, horribly wrong is the cover story of the July issue of North & South Magazine (click here to read).

It's all about age

in today's Your Weekend and Canvas Mags where, by some stroke of luck, I ended up bagging the cover stories of both.

In the DomPost's Your Weekend Magazine, I chatted to some amazing women who found a new direction after 50 (click here to read), while in the NZ Herald's Canvas magazine, I put on my science hat to find out why testosterone is being touted as the secret to finding lost libido after the big four-oh (click here to read).

Coast and Country

A few months back, I 'did' the three-day Tora Coastal Walk at the heel of the North Island.

That story is published in the June issue of North & South Magazine (click here to read).

Apologies

Naughty me, have been home two and a bit weeks and still haven't posted any pics of the Japan trip. Too much work, too much time spent on Instagram rather than here, is pretty much what it boils down to.

But hopefully some of this visual loveliness will help assuage my neglect of this blog. I vow to do better next time.
