Just found out about “Presenting Canterbury,” a daily food & wine extravaganza in Christchurch celebrating our local food producers, running from 11am-5pm 8th October – 13th October. Will definitely post photos if I manage to make it along! If you’re in Christchurch let me know if you’re interested in going :D
EDIT: I’ve made this into a 2-part tour. Feel free to join me any time throughout the tour, it’s going to be a very casual and delicious day :)
Sample the yummiest food in Canterbury, grown or made:
Close to home is a free tour for Christchurch foodlovers to sample & support some of our local food heroes while meeting some other Christchurch foodies. You can meet us at whatever time suits you on the day, so you can come to one part only if you want. To make your life easy, bring cash with you on the day for breakfast/lunch or impulse buys! You do not need to be a member of The Potluck Club to join us, so invite any of your friends who are interested, or do your own tour with your friends.
Breakfast (optional) and browse at Christchurch Farmers Market, 10:30am, 15th October
Meet on the steps at the entrance to Riccarton House, or ring Zo on 021 857 559 if you arrive after 10 and we’ll let you know where we’ve wandered off to.
Checking out Presenting Canterbury, optional lunch to follow. 12:30pm, 15th October
Meet at the bridge to the Botanical Gardens from Armagh St Car Park, or ring Zo on 021 857 559 if you arrive after 12:30pm and we’ll let you know where we’ve wandered off to.
If people are keen I can show you where to forage for onionweed (it’s a little like garlic chives) nearby
If you’d like to bikepool or carpool, please leave a comment here with your rough location and whether you are offering a lift or require one.
If it’s raining heavily on the day I will post an update here as to whether the tour will go ahead – we will probably just postpone to the next Saturday if it is raining.
