Wellington on a Plate

Hard to believe the Capital's premier food and wine festival has been going for five years; back then, I was keeping the Marketing Comms Manager seat at Grow Wellington warm and was part of the original launch team. Holy crap, where have the last five years gone?

Tonight was the media launch of the 2013 event; as always it was good to catch up with fellow journos (mostly there for the free food and wine and the goody bags) and some of this city's amazing restaurateurs/food and beverage producers and event folk. I even ran into a chap I worked with at the BBC in London more than 20 years ago; he is now editor at large of MindFood Magazine. As we sipped bubbly and ate our body weight in nibbles, we laughed at the crazy trajectory our lives had taken.  

I'll be writing about the event for the Forbes blog when the festival kicks off in August, but if you're going to be in the world's most southern capital then, I'd suggest you check out the programme and book your tickets NOW.
