Pearl Beach Food and Wine Fare

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

10am – 5pm: Saturday 27th September 2014

Pearl Beach Memorial Hall, 9 Diamond Road, Pearl Beach

If you love gourmet food and boutique wines why not head off to the annual Pearl Beach Food and Wine Fare. The event hosted by the Pearl Beach Progress Association is now in its seventh year and as a community fundraising activity attracts large crowds who enjoy tasting and purchasing from our select range of boutique wines and gourmet foods.

Lynne Lillico from the Progress Association says “we will be showcasing three Hunter based boutique wineries Wollombi Wines, Finch Lane Wines and Catherine Vale Wines” and an eclectic selection of food producers”.

Favourites return for sampling and purchase from a range of fresh gourmet producers including local Little Creek Cheeses with a variety to crave for, Simon’s Wollombi Pantry adding spices to the flavour, Marcs Patisserie with an array of mouthwatering chocolate, pastry and cakes, plus Margin’s Mushrooms a local identity, and always a sell-out.

Returning Crooked Creek’s savoury and sweet biscuits with their homemade Christmas puddings, Hunter Olives and processed products. What better than bees as pure as nature, Wollombi Honey to temp the taste buds, and always a favourite experience an exotic range of Laguna Lavender products to appeal to the senses”.

New this year is ‘We only do Delicious’ presenting a delicious variety of gift ideas, and ‘Catering by the Two Turkeys’ for home or party.

The event promises to be the best ever come so along and have some fun.

Gourmet Hampers filled with food and wine generously donated by our exhibitors with be raffled with proceeds toward the hall maintenance.

Current happenings

The past two months has seen follow up weeding around our plantings at Paul Landa Reserve, North Coral Crescent and the Lagoon. Well done for a great planting effort and this essential weeding.

We have submitted the Strategic Plan for 2014-15 to Gosford Council.

The next meeting will be on Saturday 2nd August but the site has yet to be settled. Those with email will be contacted closer to the time but please keep a look out for the sign.

Saturday 6th September we will go back to North Coral Crescent with the possibility (to be confirmed) of Long Stem Plantings of acacia to make up for some of the losses from dry weather, sea spray etc.
