Produce-rich Hawke's Bay shines as a foodie destination even when the sun doesn't, epitomised by this June's winter Food and Wine Classic (F.A.W.C.) festival, which features over 45 unique food events.
As the festival approaches, we're giving three participants the keys to to the Dish Instagram account so they can share the preparation process with us through candid photography. We started this week with regular F.A.W.C star, chef Martin Bosley, who will be cooking a beautiful eight course honey-themed menu in the grounds of historic Balquhidder House on the 20th June, in collaboration with the artistic Culy family and Beagle's Bees' local, organic honey.
He travelled to Napier this Monday to meet with Leanne and Brian Culy (who as a professional photographer himself, leapt at the opportunity to photograph the occasion for Martin) and discuss plans, as well as to taste Beagle's unique honey, learning about his unique style of beekeeping.
Martin Bosley's honey dinner, Bee Prepared, has unfortunately now sold out. There are countless other fabulous events taking place over four weekends in June at Winter F.A.W.C, to read the full line up and book tickets, vist www.fawc.co.nz
