Latest competition:


Andrea Wong :: So D'lish. New Zealand's food blog websiteThat's me on the left, Andrea Wong. I am the Chief Pot Washer, discoverer, writer, photographer and Official Taster of So D'lish. I started this website because I wanted to uncover the best of New Zealand's food and drink and share it with others. To me, there's nothing more exciting than discovering a new product produced here in New Zealand, that is out of this world.

Help me discover things quicker: do you know about a product or restaurant that you'd like to see on the site? Tell me about it and we'll see what we can do.

Have your say

    As I myself being a food lover, I was checking out for some awesome food blogs in Google in order to gain some idea on creating a new food blog of mine. Your blog is good & I liked your blog however I don't know why but after reading your blog instead of creating a new food blog, I end up creating a new social media blog (
    After all Good Food + Good People = Good Life (Formula & Equation of a Happy Life)

    Hi! My name is Meg, and as my email address reflects, I work with Urbanspoon. We are super excited about our expansion into New Zealand and strengthening our relationships with bloggers in Austrailia. While working through our list, I noticed that it appears we don't have an email address for So D'Lish. I apologize for reaching out to you this way, but we don't have another way of contacting you. If you would send the best contact email to me at:, it would be appreciated.

    I look forward to hearing back from you and reading more reviews on your site. Beautiful photos!

    Thank you for all that you do for Urbanspoon!

    Hi there Andrea,

    I am contacting you on behalf of Swiss Diamond New Zealand. Recently highly recommended by Consumer NZ, Swiss Diamond is New Zealand’s top non-stick cookware. With a crushed diamond and chemical free coating, made in Switzerland, you really can’t beat the quality of Swiss Diamond. We want to get the word out about Swiss Diamond and get feedback from real New Zealanders and this is where you come in.

    Would you be willing to try out, photograph and blog the experience of using Swiss Diamond Cookware? A Fry Pan would be supplied free of charge and then if you like the product, we’d offer a second free item for you to give away to one of your readers as a token of our thanks.

    We will provide all the information about our cookware but are after totally unsolicited feedback. What do you think?

    Our company, P.S. Marketing sells a number of cookware brands and if this exercise is a success there is potential for us to work together in the future on similar ventures with our other brands.

    I look forward your reply.

    Warm regards,

    Swiss Diamond NZ
