It’s that time of year where we all pretend to be thinking about #health, beachwear and (heaven forbid) crop tops, but really all our thoughts turn to food during summer. There is nothing that will get between you and a cheese platter, you’d give your right arm for the last bubble gum Zooper Dooper, and hope to god no one crosses you when there’s only one slice of pav left.
Ahh, the festivities. They’re quite the kilo packer. What can we say? We’re suckers for good food and drink—bikini body be damned!
So, if like us, you love food in all its glorious forms, you’re going to love the upcoming food festival out at the iconic Spicers Hidden Vale.
Running from the 8–28 January 2018, the inaugural Flavours Of Summer Gourmet Festival will showcase the finest local produce and flavours the region (and Hidden Vale’s hatted restaurant, Homage) is known for, with the Spicers Hidden Vale’s stunning property and 12,000 acre surrounds being transformed into a foodie-loving paradise.
Picture free cheese and champagne masterclasses in the barn, Aperol Spritz’ and freshly made nibbles by the pool as the sun sets, cocktail-making classes in the gardens, a Hawkes Brewing Co backyard cricket tournament (exciting much!?), nightly moonlight alfresco cinema sessions plus a whole host of food and drink on offer for you to scoff your faces.
Spicers Hidden Vale guests staying overnight during the festival will enjoy full, complimentary access to all of the festival’s activities, while day-trippers can enjoy three-course dining and total access to the festival for just $95.
You’ll know where to find us: cocktail in hand, a cheese platter by our sides. Heaven!
