Taste of Chit­ter­ing

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

Fes­ti­val on Au­gust 26 show­cases food and wine in the Shire of Chit­ter­ing.

THE food and wine of Chit­ter­ing will be show­cased this month as the re­gion cel­e­brates its sixth Taste of Chit­ter­ing event.

The event at Nesci Es­tate Wines will show­case some of the re­gion’s finest pro­duce.

A new ad­di­tion to this year’s event is food demon­stra­tions and tast­ings by chef and leader in the slow food move­ment Vin­cenzo Vel­letri fo­cus­ing on lo­cal and healthy pro­duce.

Mr Vel­letri said he was look­ing for­ward to shar­ing the slow food phi­los­o­phy.

“Slow food is all about pre­serv­ing tra­di­tional cui­sine and en­cour­ag­ing sus­tain­able farm­ing of plants and live­stock, and the im­por­tance of healthy and lo­cal pro­duce,” he said.

“I hope we can share this phi­los­o­phy – what we do and why we do it – and make peo­ple aware of the amaz­ing pro­duce there is to of­fer here.”

Kevin Nesci from Nesci Es­tate Wines said he was thrilled to be host­ing the Taste of Chit­ter­ing for 2018.

“Our winery is the old­est in the re­gion and a real hid­den gem,” he said.

The Taste of Chit­ter­ing will be held at Nesci Es­tate Wines on Au­gust 26 from 10am to 3pm.
