F.A.W.C! goes international

Love the explosive flavours of international cuisine? Luckily, there's no need to cross continental boarders to get a taste - why not let your taste buds do the travelling at Winter F.A.W.C!?

Fancy a summer getaway? Escape into the Urban Winery for a the ultimate beach evening (without the sand). If French cuisine is up your alley, all your Christmases will be coming at one at Farmhouse Kitchen. Black Barn Vineyards will be putting on the ultimate evening of Italian cuisine, and Mister D will be bringing the rockin' feel of the United Kingdom to Napier.

Leave your passport at home, and escape to Hawke's Bay this June. 


Italian cuisine will be taking centre stage at this one-off evening of delightful dining at Black Barn Bistro. Start your evening on the perfect note with canapes around the fire place, before proceeding to the main event. Talented Head Chef, Daniel Pistone, will be showing off his skills in the kitchen when he creates Italian-inspired starters and a two-course spread. 


Joyeux Noël! A mid-winter Christmas celebration is arriving at Farmhouse Kitchen, with special guest Kem Ormond from Maison de Cuisine in Havelock North. Kem is experienced in French-inspired cooking, and under her guidance participants will create a French Christmas menu.


'Scouse on down’ to Mister D for some driving white soul music by local band, Power, and a dine and dance-themed evening at our Purple Pussy Cat Club. Imagine Liverpool in 1985 - leather jackets, winkle pickers and striped t's. Throw away your wallets and waistlines and get in the groove, while you chow down on a three-course dinner menu from the era featuring posh corned beef hash, chat bombs, lobster pot, scouse and punk petit fours.


Shake off the cold and ditch those pesky winter blues for a mid-year summer escape at The Urban Winery. Everyone’s favourite suburban hot-spot will be transformed into paradise, complete with a beach-bar ready to serve up all those classic summer cocktails: Pina Coladas, Margaritas and Mojitos. Cocktails don’t float your boat? Don’t fret - the impressive Hawke’s Bay wine and craft beer menu will also be available to help you cool down.
