Peta Mathias is a respected and prolific author, television personality and stage performer, as well as an international gastronomic tour host. Peta hosted Prime TV travel/food shows for 12 years, winning an international award at the World Food Media Awards in Adelaide in 1997. She was also voted Supreme Award winner at the New Zealand Guild of Food Writers Culinary Quill Awards in 2003 and was awarded a New Zealand Order of Merit in 2012.
Peta’s passion for food, travel and writing is the perfect mix, as she spends half the year living in her home in Uzès in the South of France and half the year in Auckland. She hosts gastronomic tours in Marrakesh, Uzès, Puglia, the Basque Country and Portugal. Her latest book ‘Shed Couture’ is about fashion and clothing. Fashion is mysterious, irrestible and alluring. Clothes are never just clothes - they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and above all, joy.
Join us for an afternoon with the delightfully entertaining Peta as she shares insight into her career and travels. She has a zest for life you can almost taste! In her words, ‘it ain’t over till it’s over’.

Residents at Ryman villages are not retiring from life, they're finding a new way to live. They're rediscovering passions and pastimes that were lost when responsibilities took over, they're learning new skills, and they're embracing connections with like-minded people. The banter, laughter and camaraderie are what make every day special.
