It was her love of food that made Deb Nee-
Nilson decide to open up a gourmet deli in
An avid watcher of cooking shows, a
lover of the food magazine 'Dish' and an
indescribable passion for the delicacies in
cooking, Deb knew it was the right move to
After living in Christchurch and relocating
to Invercargill, she had found that
Invercargill were not huge stockists of the
finer ingredients in cooking either, so after
sourcing such ingredients, she opened
Taste Matters Ltd Gourmet Deli in Windsor,
and it went from there.
Seven years on, the business has gone from strength to st
mer s needs and desires at
When asked what she loved about food Deb couldn't pin point one thing, but talked about the goose
bumps she would get just from the passion of speaking about food with customers.
"I would just be speaking to a customer, and I wo ld find myself getting goose bumps!"
Deb puts her heart and soul into good food, cooking and all things food related, and understands
what makes a good meal.
With her favourite thing to cook being Pork belly with watercress salad and a Pinot Noir glaze, it's
obvious from the beginning that her talents are far beyond just knowing the ingredients, but actually
utilising them too.
"A little bit of indulgence is allowed now and then so Eat, Love,
Live, Indulge," she says.
Deb is a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it,
and that is why she is a woman owning a successful business,
Taste Matters Ltd Gourmet Deli.
A beautiful smile of white teeth can take
10 years off your appearance, says Yvette
Cleaver, of Sparklewhite Teeth.
When the license for Invercargill-Southland
was offered, owner/operator Yvette, who has
a dental background, says it was an exciting
opportunity to bring to Southlanders' a safe,
affordable, quick and painless option.
"These days many people have become aware
of how important it is to look after their teeth
- which includes making them look their best
Quite often people don't realise how
discoloured their teeth have become until they
see themselves in photos. Tooth discoloration
can be caused by some medications, smoking,
caffeine, red wine as well as genetics.
Sparklewhite Teeth is New Zealand's first,
largest and trusted teeth whitening company in
NZ with over 20 licensed branches nationwide.
Sparklewhite's treatment takes about one hour
and involves shining an LED cold light (laser
light) on teeth which have had a special gel
applied. The gel reacts under the light and
removes the discolouration.
"We are excited not only able to offer
Hydrogen Peroxide gels but also have a great
Non Hydrogen Peroxide gel (Euro gel) which is
especially good for those who may suffer from
sensitive teeth & gums, results are equally as
good as the peroxide based treatment."
Both gels can be used for caps, crowns,
veneers or bridges and results can range from
two to 10 shades from a one hour in-chair
treatment, that lasts up to two years.
The affordable treatment can be performed on
almost anyone over 18 years of age.

Asthma kids wear blue
Feeling blue: There were blue cupcakes, blue milkshakes and even blue hair at Edukids North Rd.
The kindergarten marked balloon day as part of Asthma Awareness Week and celebrated by dressing up in blue on Friday.
Nursery teacher and event organiser Bec Bryan said there were a number of children who had asthma at the centre and
it was important to give the other children an understanding of it and raise awareness about the issue.
The children blew through straws to see what it was like being asthmatic and short of breath and they learnt about why
inhalers were used.
Each child also brought a donation, which the centre was giving to The Asthma Foundation, she said.

humbles hospice boss
Hospice Southland chief execu-
tive Max Reid has been ''over-
whelmed'' by the community
support for his organisation.
Hospice Awareness Week ended
last week but Mr Reid was at yet
another function to collect a
cheque, which he said emphas-
ised the community's generosity.
''The support from the com-
munity is just phenomenal,
there's probably not many other
organisations in the community
that have touched so many lives.
''We couldn't provide the service
that we do without them, that's
the reality. The funding that we
get covers half the cost of
providing the level of service that
The latest group to donate to the
cause was Altrusa International's
Fundraising co-ordinator Ceciley
Mesman said the branch had
chosen to donate money they had
raised from Easter raffles to the
hospice because the organisation
affected so many people.
They raised $850 through four
raffles and the generosity of
Southlanders was great, she said.
