But being a foodie is no mean feat. We foodie folk live and breathe it, hanging for the latest culinary introduction to add to our jam-packed refrigerators. Sampling the most recent vintage of one of New Zealandís vineyard offerings never goes astray either, now does it? So buckle up food fanatics, and get ready for a ride - Food Show 2012†is coming to town.
