Top New Zealand chef Peter Gordon is closing his Auckland restaurant and cooking school, citing problems renewing the downtown lease.

Gordon sets up Homeland with partner Alastair Carruthers in 2020.

“Homeland’s premises and wider surroundings are being redeveloped and our landlord will not renew our lease. So with great sadness we are retreating,” a statement issued on Monday said.

The dining room would close at the end of April, followed by the cooking school at the end of July.

“In the meantime, we are still open for business,” Homeland’s owners said in the statement.

“Our staff are hugely impacted, and we ask for space while we consult with them and work out what is next for the Homeland project. Homeland’s purposes are not finished. The problem is premises.”

Gordon was based in the United Kingdom for 31 years, establishing The Sugar Club and Providers restaurants and becoming renowned as “the godfather of fusion cooking”.

He had decided in August 2020 to return, but when Covid-19 started shutting down the world, he raced back to New Zealand in March – just before the first lockdown.

Ezekiel Elliott reunion, Dalvin Cook both options for Dallas Cowboys at RB

ORLANDO, Fla. — As the Cowboys build their backfield in 2024, the future may include a familiar face.

Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook are two veteran options who stand to draw strong club consideration as free agency progresses. Elliott spent seven seasons in Dallas from 2016-22. Cook would reunite with Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, his head coach on the Minnesota Vikings from 2017-21.

Team owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones told The Dallas Morning News this week at the NFL’s annual meeting they could neither confirm nor deny interest in the running backs. While they declined to comment, anyone contemplating the Cowboys’ direction at the position would be wise to monitor the veteran running backs in conjunction with a rookie pick. Several people familiar with the players’ thinking told TheNews the veterans have interest in potentially signing with Dallas.

It appears all but certain Dallas will select a running back next month during the draft’s second or third day, which together span the second to seventh rounds. That rookie would project for rotational touches as part of a larger backfield committee.

Cooking and Eating Together: Key Ingredients for Wellbeing?

A new study from the Ajinomoto Group and Gallup offers good news for people who enjoy cooking and dining frequently with people they know: Both may be good for their wellbeing.

According to the survey, nearly six in 10 people (58%) interviewed across 142 countries in 2022 said the act of cooking brought them joy in the previous seven days. However, men’s and women’s views differ sharply, with roughly three-quarters of women (76%) saying they enjoyed cooking in the past week, compared with 40% of men.


The recently released Wellbeing Through Cooking: Global Insights Into Cooking Enjoyment and Eating Together report details these findings as well as other key insights, including the positive relationship between cooking enjoyment and higher life evaluations. It also features the first global analysis of whether eating frequently with other people is tied to a higher overall quality of life.

The gap between the joy that men and the joy that women get from cooking further illustrates the fundamentally different relationship they have with cooking. In 2022, the gender disparity in cooking — already sizable — grew for the first time in the five-year trend, as fewer men shared this responsibility with women, according to
