UNO. Most Read in September

The Magazine Media Awards, a legendary midwife and vegan dumplings — we’ve rounded up our five most popular features of September.

5. Eagle Ridge — To A Year Well Done

We reck­on Eagle Ridge has served around 30,000 canapés, pure 20,000 glass­es of cham­pag­ne, and made up hun­dreds and hun­dreds of beds in the last year. We talk to own­ers, Nigel and Deb, and man­ager, Bri­ana, about the high­lights of their first year.

4. The Editor’s Diary: Where HAVE You Been? 4–10 September

Our whole team were up in Auck­land this week at the Mag­a­zine Media Awards. We were sur­prised (and so thrilled!) to be final­ists in two cat­e­gories: Best Design­er, and Best Edi­tor.

3. Dish Of The Week: Tiki Dumplings At The Rising Tide

The dish is actu­al­ly named after the local leg­end Tiki Taane. At one of the events back in 2015 he came to Johney’s Dumpling House stall and asked if they had any vege options. Unfor­tu­nate­ly they didn’t. So Johny Zhou set him­self the task of cre­at­ing some­thing for the veg­e­tar­i­ans and veg­ans.

2. Recover: Anne Sharplin

When we put Anne on the cov­er in win­ter 2016, the respon­se was huge. We were bowled over by the wave of love for this wom­an who is respon­si­ble for attend­ing the births of over 2,000 babies. Work­ing on call is hard. Anne has done it for 35 years, and 30 of those in Tau­ran­ga. We caught up with her a year after appear­ing on our cov­er.

1. Tarnished Frocks And Divas. The Millennial View

One of Tauranga’s biggest shows, Tar­nished Frocks and Divas, kicked with a huge open­ing night last night at the ASB Are­na. Our UNO. dig­i­tal ed was there to watch this year’s show, Zoet­i­ca.
