Yes lets. Talk about food. Because it is July which is fast becoming one of Gisborne's calendar highlights with the wonderful GIZZY FOOD MONTH.
This month locals will enjoy a long, very long, lunch at a local brewery, a huge degustation event at a French Restaurant, a charity lunch with Ben Bayly and a themed Pecha Kucha night to be held right on the beach front at Waikanae Surf Club.
Generally we considered themed PK nights to be too much of a good thing with potential to lean toward that shady place - death by powerpoint. But, who doesn't love food. surely, we thought to ourselves, there must be some amazing foodies around the town and we can quitely tell you in advance tht there is some real talent out there.
This is no tv cook off, we have a nutritionist, coffee afficiandos, a chef, a honey man, the master of sourdough and who knew we have a talented food stylist living in Gisborne.
Get along and check it out and check out the new Surf Club building at the end of Grey Street. Entry is at the back of the building and up a flight of stairs. See you Friday at 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Seating is limited so grab a ticket from the smashing refurbished Interiors at Ballance St Village and don't risk missing out.
