3 Days in Auckland!

I would suggest getting the ferry to Waiheke Island and having meal at one of the vinyard restaurants. Waiheke used to be hippy heaven, now it's all about the wine.

We had a meal at Mudbrick; it was beautiful food. Quite expensive but the view across the harbour towards Auckland is stunning.
Te Whau wine has a good reputation; their menu looks great.

Otherwise, Ponsonby Road has loads and loads of trendy bars, cafes and restaurants. It was really busy last time I was there a few years ago. Great for people watching. I don't know any particular places off the top of my head but cuisine.co.nz has loads of reviews.

[Stratford Upon Avon] Wherefore art my lunch?

We'll be spending a few days near SUA; does anyone have any suggestions about interesting places to eat?
We will probably only spend one day in the town itself so I'm very keen to hear about places in the countryside; we have a car and we're not afraid to use it!
Thanks in advance.

Cooking classes in Marrakesh

I'll have just over a week in Morocco at the start of June and I would love to do a cooking class.
Does anyone have any advice or experience with this?
There are two of us; we'd only be able to do a one-day class.
I'd really love a guided tour round the markets too, buying the ingredients and so on.
Can't wait!

Eating in Mallorca

Hi Sheldon.
We went to a wonderful place a few years ago Sant Elm near Andratx.
And I've finally found out what it's called thanks to all those people who put their photos up on google earth!
Here's the link http://www.todoesp.es/cala-conills/
The website doesn't do it justice. The location is spectacular.
We went on a cold windy weekday in May so it was quiet. All of us (we were a party of 8) had gorgeous fresh fish. The most spectacular was the fish baked whole under rock salt.
And i am delighted to say I've just found a picture of the very dish.... http://alacarte.de/welcome/go/745/int...
YUM!
Enjoy.
