CHEESE WIRE - JANUARY 2017
Hawke's Bay Hunter-Gatherer Foodie Tours
If you are coming to Hawke's Bay and love food and drink then I have created what I think is the ultimate experience! A tour that takes in the best sights of Hawke's Bay while visiting vineyards, cheesemakers, the figgery, Telegraph Hill Olives and other artisan producers. The idea is to gather together everything we will need for the perfect (late) lunch at my home sitting above the vineyards of Black Barn. After lunch we make a couple more stops then take you back to where we started.. or to the Gannet Safaris maybe.
Pimp Your Own Cheese Class
To Europeans a cheese tasting is like a wine tasting – entertaining, educational and something you do regularly. For antipodeans they conjure up images of earnest talks on Healthy Eating or eating rubbery cheese on tooth picks washed diwn with cheap wine ....
This is definitely not what my classes or tastings are about! They are often hilarious, always illuminating and sometimes even life changing. To convince the non-believers I have created “Pimp your own cheese tastings”. So now you can design your tasting like you would a menu, holiday itinerary or even handbag!
Use the options below [or the classes on my Masterclass page] below as a guide or call me!
CHEESE - New Zealand, British, French, goat, blues, or a mix
DRINKS - Red wine, white wine, both? Or beer, whisky, apple juice?
STYLE - Horizontal, vertical, mixed, comparison or unusual
LOCATION - Come to me in Hawke's Bay or I can come to you
NUMBERS - 8 – 80 or beyond
FORMAT - 2 hours, 4 hours or a Gastronomic weekend?
PRICE - from $45 – $125 depending on numbers etc
Ideal for Team Building, Private Parties or just a bit of fun evenings …
If that’s all too hard then simply choose a CHEESE Masterclass or Tasting from the various options on my website or call me and we can talk it through.
"Professor" Harbutt on tour July 10 - August 18 2017
I will be travelling back to Europe again this year through Singapore, Malaysia and/or Hong Kong and doing a series of classes, tastings or weekends. If you would like me to host an event for you then please let me know as soon as possible as I only have 5 days available in July.
For the ultimate Tuscan holiday check out Castello di Potentino it is the most wonderful place - see below for details of my Gastro weekend there.
