Topic: Auckland`s History through its Placenames
The names of our suburbs, districts & streets reveal many fascinating snippets about Auckland`s
evolution & cultural heritage. I am a 3rd generation New Zealander of Chinese
descent, grew up in Onehunga, worked for 40 years in office administration / customer services, lead
walks in Auckland, mainly looking at history but some geology. Actively involved in historical
societies & U3A (Network Rep for Manurewa, and arranging their speakers) Played rugby, cricket &
tennis in earlier times & now play croquet & indoor bowls.


Mini Speaker: Norman Lodge
Topic: Making Sense of Food Flavour

The talk will look at the science behind food flavour with particular reference to
attempting to identify flavour by objective means, i.e. instrumentation. This helps to
illustrate the need for sensory panels to be used when assessing food flavour on a
scientific basis. An overview of how wine flavour presents itself to the senses will
then be covered. The application of scientific sensory panels are then discussed as
are "judging" techniques as used in wine competitions.
