Asian Garden Cooking School Event

Posted on: April 1, 2019 at 12:00 PM    

A recent SNC event involved a group of about 20 of us heading over to the Asian Garden Cooking School in Harewood, for a demonstration of Thai/ Vietnamese cooking. We started the evening with a lesson on the various exotic Asian herbs used to flavor the cooking. So many of these herbs were highly fragrant and had intense flavor. After that we moved inside for a lesson on how to make Oyster dipping sauce, beef cheek Penang curry and Vietnamese rice paper rolls. I now know why I could never get my Thai curries at home to taste the way they are meant to! We got a chance to have a go and the flavours were sublime. After the practical demo we sat down to a variety of courses served up with some delicious wine. Well worth the time and money – thank you SNC for a superb event!

This year, the theme was #BalanceforBetter so I decided to take the opportunity to reflect on my first year working in an industry that’s tackling a serious gender imbalance.

Courtney's key takeaways from the Transportation Group Conference 2019

Posted on: March 8, 2019 at 9:28 AM    

This week I was lucky enough to attend the annual EngNZ Transportation Group conference - always one of the highlights of my year. This year's theme, "The Changing Face of Transport", was particularly relevant. Not only in the context of Central Government change, and the associated policy changes that fall out of that, but in the changes we are seeing globally around drivers for transport investment and the form in which transport infrastructure is being delivered.
