Food, Family & Friends Podcast 15: Tony Murrell – NZ Radio/TV Host, Garden Guru

 

Tony Murrell & Ness

Tony Murrell & Ness Baxter

 

Tony Murrell is a household name in NZ as the host of The Home and Garden Show on Radio Live and one of the hosts of the TV ONE show Kiwi Living. He has the loveliest radio voice and you would think he had been in the media for his whole life.

In this interview I discover that Tony studied to be Chef in London – his claim to fame at this point being that he attended the same culinary college as Jamie Oliver (though not at the same time!)

Tony shares his passion for life and his belief that you must live doing what you love. He is enigmatic and engaging and truly appreciates the connections people make through their food and sharing it with others.

He shares his determination to never say NO but to grab opportunities as they are presented and to approach mistakes with the attitude they can be the pathways to success.

Tony’s ‘real business’ is as a Garden Designer

“I’m passionate about gardens and garden design which is why I have been in the horticultural industry for most of my working career, almost 30 years. I throughly enjoy meeting and working with people designing and building beautiful outdoor environments.”

This is an episode full of lively conversation, life-skill suggestions, upping your brave and living your life as an adventure.

I am deeply honoured to bring you this episode with this well known media figure in NZ. 

You can tune into Tony’s Home & Garden show (Radio Live) on Saturdays and Sundays from 6-8am. Check out Tony’s book – Garden Designs to Enhance your Life and his website. Also, these Facebook pages for Home and Garden and Kiwi Living.

Greg Piner is the Executive Chef at Vault 21 in Dunedin.  He has travelled throughout the country working as a Chef and as a Development manager within the industry for many years, sourcing new products and increasing his knowledge of cuisine.

One of his biggest loves is using fresh NZ produce with the mission of keeping food nutritious and simple yet pleasing to the eye.

image1Wayne Howett is an approachable, engaging and friendly CEO – who many of the families who stay at Ronald McDonald House in Auckland, know on first name basis. He is often found wandering through the House, chatting companionably with those staying there, listening as they share their day with him. His relaxed demeanour belies the huge task he has in the continual success of operating this large and essential charity for New Zealand.

As always, generous to the core, Wayne finds the time to join me in the studio to discuss his life, his love of food and travel, his beautiful family, and his philosophy on food and its intrinsic relationship with keeping families close.

We hope you feel inspired to find out more about Ronald McDonald House Charities where-ever you are in the world.  If you are in Auckland and are you seeking an engaging, collaborative and rewarding team building experience for your employees please touch base with me as I run a team building experience incorporating team work, engagement, active leadership and co-operation inside the House. It will provide all the benefits of team building exercise whilst supporting an amazing charity.
