Hey I’m back! Apologies for the disappearing act
I had a fantastic holiday in the US and since returning I’ve really struggled to chain myself to the computer to pen anything about my experiences. We did, saw and ate so much that I don’t even know where to begin…
There will be some travel-related posts coming up, but today I would like to introduce you to some delicious opportunities.
Part of my goal for this blog is to build up a resource of Cooking Classes, Food Tours and Gourmet Experiences. Recently I’ve been wondering whether the design of this site will work for this purpose…and I’m sure this will evolve in time.
Through the wonders of Twitter, I connected with Matt Baker, chef and owner of a Melbourne based business named Whe-Eat. Matt is a horticulturist, chef and founded Whe-Eat to bring foodies, farmers, producers and chefs together.
Matt has put together a selection of events that are bound to tempt and excite anyone with a curiosity or interest in food. So here are some options to spoil yourself or surprise the food lover in your life with a unique gift…
The line up of events includes:
Goats on the Hill
Matt has teamed up with Megan & Taylan Atar, owners of Seven Hills Tallarook Goat Farm, to produce a unique paddock to plate food experience.
Located one hour north of Melbourne, Seven Hills Tallarook Goat Farm has been awarded the finest goat meat in Australia for 3 years running.
The day includes:
From The Paddock
Morning Tea On Arrival With Bush Damper
Behind The Scenes Look Of A Workable Goat Farm With 4wd Tour
Yabbie Catching From The Dams
Heirloom Vegetable, Fodder & Herb Picking
To The Plate
360 sunset views, drinks and canapes on arrival back at the farm house propped on the top of the property, with intimate 3 course executive chef experience, served as share plates with matching sustainable local wines.
The objectives of this event is to open conversation and break down the barriers between end user, producers and chefs, with only 25 guests at any one time.
