Expect renowned Chef Martin Bosley to be shucking fresh oysters to order, while the Advintage crew bangs out old school whitebait sandwiches. Expect Vagabond Jack's food truck classics. Expect Scott Towers on the decks. And expect to have a really great time.
This is a very casual, walk up gig and always one of the biggest events on the F.A.W.C! calendar. Park up for the long haul or drop in to warm up before other F.A.W.C! events.
F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic has new dates but the same plan – to celebrate 10 years of the Hawke’s Bay’s signature culinary festival with incredible wine, fantastic entertainment and some of the best chefs Hawke’s Bay and New Zealand can serve up.
While Covid-19 forced the festival to postpone to our new dates of January 28 – February 6, the majority of F.A.W.C! events have come along for the ride. The Hawke’s Bay’s culinary tastemakers have delivered a dazzling line up of events, including a new signature showcase luncheon that will act as a cornerstone of the Summer Series for years to come.
The entire 10-day festival will be a stunning display of the very best of Food and Wine Country as the region’s finest chefs, winemakers, artisans and purveyors work alongside incredible visiting talent. And with a programme this F.A.W.C!ing good, the hardest part will be deciding which events to leave off your itinerary.
