Elle was an amazing guide! She knew just where to take us in order for us to truly experience the different flavors of Auckland. We started in the local market where we sampled delicious quiche and croque monsieur. The brownie was amazing and the limoncello divine! We also went to the shop where chefs buy their cheeses and various ingredients. We tried and also purchased some amazing cheeses and tea! We some how also managed to grab some yummy apple syrup to bring home and hide from the kids! Elle also took us to lunch for some Auckland local seafood. Perfect! Elle knows the ins and outs of Auckland and the best places to go if you want to experience the flavors of Auckland. She is funny and entertaining and we truly enjoyed our tour and meeting her. I highly recommend Big Foody Food Tours if you want a true taste of Auckland.
