‘How to get the Media to Love You’

Would you like to be a better public speaker, that go-to person that NZ media interview about food matters in NZ? Perhaps gain some presenting skills or learn tips from people that know how to get you noticed? As food writers, you do need to know how to play the media game and we'd love you to join us for our first NZGFW workshop of 2014. Join fellow members, movers-and-shakers and food lovers alongside Bill Ralston and Janet Wilson for an evening of media training, mingling and no doubt, a few fun laughs.

AGA Cookery Demonstration 

What a wonderful evening of entertainment, and food this was. Richard's 'act' was magical, he created, cooked, and talked for almost two hours, making the AGA perform like the Tardis, a huge amount of food magically appeared out of the stove's three ovens and two hotplates - sausages, a lamb roast, poached apricots, pears, meringues, berry crumble, a lemon roulade, and much, much more. (His popovers individual yorkshire puds were to die for!) We all left totally full up and in great spirits.

Richard will be back in Auckland, same time next year and is willing to do it all again for Guild members - watch this space!
