Dining and Leisure with Helen Perry Fresh from the garden is no idle boast in restaurants at the sofitel Fiji resort & spa at Den- erau. A recent sojourn at this resort turned up a few surprises in par- ticular, the management’s envi- ronmental focus. staff members have culti- vated a lush, well-tended gar- den producing an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables for the hotel’s various kitchens. While it was strange to see many vegetables fourishing out- side what would be the New Zea- land season, nevertheless how exciting to have such a bounty of traditional winter and summer greens growing side by side. There were huge broccoli nestled amongst thriving run- ner beans and row upon row of gorgeous, deep purple auber- gines colourfully accompanied by tomatoes in various stages of growth, some just planted; oth- ers ripe and red. Daily, a small team of garden- ers were busy hoeing, spray- ing and watering – I was full of admiration for their efforts in hot, humid conditions. As well as those luscious auber- gines and tomatoes, there were dwarf and runner beans, lettuce, chillies, cucumbers, capsicums, caulifowers and cabbages not to mention paw paw, pineapple and bananas. In addition, a covered nursery housed all manner of tropical beauties destined for the fower beds, which also received loving attention from gardeners. This kind of endeavour must be applauded. Not only is the garden providing employment, it makes use of what otherwise might be idle land and ensures garden fresh produce plays a sig- nifcant role in preparing healthy menus thus saving on the gro- cery bill. Wouldn’t it be great if more resorts employed a similar phi- losophy? –H. Perry VoIx De Ville, a high-stepping addition to Auckland’s entertain- ment scene promises an evening of variety, frivolity and fun. opening tonight at TAPAC, Western spring the show runs until November 16 and features a mixture of specialty acts such as burlesque, comedy, dance, act- ing, circus and live music.
