This week we’re raising our glasses to Hawke’s Bay Tourism, who has just launched a foodie’s online guide to all things ‘food and wine’ in the Bay.
The guide features a carefully curated list of Hawke’s Bay’s unmissable experiences including casual bites (think Alessandro’s pizzas, Asian Diner’s fried chicken and Mister D’s injectable donuts), the best cellar door experiences, slick urban bars, artisanal goods and ‘Insta-worthy’ coffee spots.
Called Food and Wine Country, the website also features hidden gems and the region’s newly discovered that foodies will devour. There are degustation dining experiences, where to find the best ice creams, craft breweries, iconic eats and even must-stops for the health conscious to offset the overindulging of wine and cheese.
It’s no surprise that Hawke’s Bay is a foodie’s paradise. It’s the oldest wine region in the country and is also a primary sector powerhouse. BayBuzz just devoted an entire magazine to HB food … from farm to plate.
Hawke’s Bay Tourism’s mission is to “get visitors here now, doing more and coming back” – they’ve also produced a video to promote the new Food and Wine Country moniker. It’s sensational and will make you appreciate the bounty we have on our doorstep.
Enough talking, I’m off to Rush Munro.
