F.A.W.C! Cooking Safari

Cooking Safari

Hosted by Winter F.A.W.C!
as part of Winter F.A.W.C!

Enjoy the ‘how to’ of cooking with the much-lauded and award-winning chef Christopher Stockdale. You’ll enjoy a four-course tasting menu and a splash of four delicious local wines. Gather with us in the beautiful Wallingford and its surrounds, collecting edible goodies from the garden, trufflery and farmland. You’ll help chop, bake, salt, fry, sauté, churn, braise and ‘fire and ice’ the produce in our pool house, all the while tasting the fruits of your prepared dalliances.

Additional options:
For the ultimate weekend, consider staying on at Wallingford, the homestead touted as ‘a stately home off the beaten track with excellent food offerings.’ Kick back and recharge; walk in the wind, think Rousseau and read with the fire by your side while we take care of the rest. Two nights with all meals provided $350 per person based on a twin share room, or one night with all meals provided $210 per person based on a twin share room. For accommodation bookings, contact Wallingford on 06 8554701.

If you want to be chauffeur driven to our doorstep, contact Wallingford on 06 8554701 and we’ll organise a friendly face to collect you and travel you through the delightful twisting, turning road that is our welcome mat.

Ticket price includes - a four course tasting menu which you help create, and a splash of four local wines. Accommodation and chauffer options are additional – please contact Wallingford directly for enquiries and bookings.
