Homemade food on the run Roadside chef: Sean Kellingray at the SH1 rest stop on the Pohuehue Viaduct south of Warkworth. He trained at West- minster College, was a chef at the Savoy Hotel in London and Ma Maison in Los Angeles, and has cooked for Holly- wood stars from Diana Ross to Orson Welles. So what s Sean Kellin- gray doing in a rest area on the side of the road between Warkworth and Orewa? Sean s the owner of The Coffee Kitchen, the kitchen-truck that s parked near the entrance to the Mt Auckland walkway near the Pohuehue Viaduct. Every day he serves up homemade food and cof- fee to hungry and weary travellers and com- muters. Fast food these days tends to be rubbish, Sean says. But it s not rubbish if it s homemade. Everything I make here is good, fast food. Sean takes pride in making things from scratch -- from the corn- ish pasties and pastries to the bread, right down to the mayonnaise. He says life for him and his young family in the United Kingdom was comfortable but very predictable . Coming to New Zea- land was like throwing the cards in the air. We love it here -- the area s beautiful. He says The Coffee Kitchen is a bit of a tour- ist information stop and he s become quite pro- ficient at pointing people in the right direction. I chose to come here in my truck because it s the second busiest road in the country. About 20,000 cars a day use this road. It s a useful place to stop, wake yourself up with a coffee and use the port-a-loo before continu- ing your journey. Visit www.thecoffee kitchen.co.nz for infor- mation. Fat Freddy's Drop in town Dropping in: Fat Freddy's Drop are on the road again. Fat Freddy s Drop are at the Mangawhai Tavern on January 6 and 7. It s part of their The Road to Opononi Summer Tour which started two days ago and ends at Opononi on January 8. Doors open 7.30pm with Bella Kalolo the support act. Tickets $55, plus booking fee, available from tick- etmaster.co.nz, ampli- fier.co.nz, and the venue. Visit www.fatfreddysd rop.com.
