This week we celebrate Waitangi Day, the day that they signed the treaty of Waitangi, New Zealands' founding document, back in 1840. Like Australia Day, it is also a public holiday and a very significant day in New Zealand history.

This week we have a menu that has a touch of the home land to it, along with our regular Afgan biscuits, the recipe of which we have below.

In the meantime, please enjoy our menu for this week.
