Matakana village lies at the heart of one of New Zealand's loveliest regions, where rolling hills and small valleys are fringed by glorious beaches and gentle estuaries. Sheltered, warm and fertile, it's a haven for horticulture and fishing. Perhaps best known these days for the Saturday morning Matakana village market and stunning beaches like Tawharanui, in the past decades it's become home to an increasing number of talented and entrepreneurial artisanal food businesses, wineries, restaurants and cafes and accommodation providers. It Takes a Village lets readers in on the secrets only locals know and is an expert companion to all the area has to offer, from food and wine to art and outdoor activities, and where to stay, written by one of New Zealand's best-known food writers.
