Agria potatoes are New Zealand’s favourite versatile variety for baking, mashing, roasting and chipping – you name it! Grown in Pukekohe’s rich soil, they’re plentiful and great to eat all year round, and good buying too.

Nothing beats fresh citrus like new season New Zealand navel oranges. Rich in Vitamin C, they’re sweet and juicy and making their way into New World stores right now. Grown mainly in Gisborne, they’re seedless, so lovely to eat just as they are and make a great addition to freshen up this side salad.

Week 2

Winter squash turns into a rich, creamy, decadent delight this week, while one of our favourite and most versatile pasta varieties, ozro, works its magic thanks to some great tips from our friends at Bite.

Check you have in supply:

Olive oil, garlic, pepper, white wine, breadcrumbs, chicken or vegetable stock, butter.

Shopping list:

  • Chicken thighs
  • Leek Fennel
  • Shiitake mushrooms
  • Orzo 
  • Lemons
  • Fresh parsley 
  • Fresh thyme 
  • Winter squash 
  • Onion 
  • Dried linguine or fettuccine 
  • Parmesan cheese

Winter squash is similar in appearance to buttercup squash. It has a light and sweet with a moist, soft texture which makes it perfect for this creamy carbonara we have for you this week. Leek, fennel and shitake mushrooms also add some fragrant variety to dinners this week. Now’s the time to enjoy the fresh autumn and winter veg on offer.

Butternut squash lends a sweet, nutty flavor to the dish. Choose a butternut with even, undamaged skin that feels heavy in the hand. The lovely tall leeks you see at your local New World have been slowly growing in Manawatu fields since summer. They’ve just been harvested for your winter cooking, so they’re plentiful and great buying right now. Give them a good wash and they’ll be a great addition to soups or just as they are, chopped, cooked and served with a drizzle of olive oil.

Week 3

At New World you can enjoy fresh fish, sustainably caught right here in New Zealand. Because we work directly with fishermen and women around the country, these experts ensure our seafood is well cared for and so delivered as fresh as possible to stores. With salmon, look for vibrant colour and firm, moist flesh.

Green veges are enjoying a plentiful season right now, so you'll get some great deals at New World on broccoli as an everyday favourite. Or try something new and go for Bellaverde broccoli it's the longer, thin stemmed variety that is tender and sweeter in taste. You can even grow it easily at home!
