Twice a year we get involved in FAWC in Hawke’s Bay. It’s an intense month long showcase of food and wine, where wineries and eateries get creative and pull out all the stops to give people a good time. Winter FAWC creates a month of excuses to get off the couch and out into the world, and it’s a great antidote to the winter blues.
This Winter FAWC we have three FAWC events. One has sold out already – our sourdough workshops – if you missed out we hope you will get to sign up to some other great treats, or perhaps we will see you next year. Our other workshop focuses on everyone’s best friend, CHOCOLATE. This workshop is very close to selling out so don’t hesitate, book here to be part of it. We are running it twice: Friday 3rd and Friday 10th June.
Our third event is a pretty special two-parter on Friday 17th June. We are focusing on Californian wines and food. We have Brendan Nash from purveyors of fine wines Dhall and Nash presenting on the characteristics of Californian wines and how they compare to Hawke’s Bay wines. Then we will serve up a delicious spread of Californian inspired cuisine. You are able to book for both parts of the event or just one. But, believe us when we say, it’s better together!
California Cruising will be held in Hastings’ newest space: Parlour Projects. This event will introduce you to this versatile gallery space that can be used for private dinners, with Opera Kitchen providing the catering. Parlour Projects is right next door to the newly reopened Opera Kitchen in Hastings.
