Culinary shopping in the greater Auckland region has never been more tempting or exciting. But how do you know where to go for that special cooking class, or that obscure but vital ingredient for a special dinner, or maybe you just want to browse and sample the fare at one of the growing number of farmers' markets. This glovebox-sized guide to the region's best foodie outlets - with its load of practical information on where to find what you're looking for, including each outlet's specialty and in some cases their range of products, trading hours and contact details - will quickly become an essential reference. Edible Auckland even has hints on parking and great picnic spots throughout the region.
