Aus Lord Howe Food and Wine Week

Pinetrees Lodge on Lord Howe Island, 2 hours off the coast from Sydney, is hosting the Island's first Food and Wine Week from July 25-29, showcasing the island's popular and one's of Australia's best table fish, Lord Howe Kingfish to food loving guests.

Each afternoon from Monday 25 July to Friday 29 July, Executive Chef Warren Farrugia and his chefs will host a 2 hour cooking workshop and demonstration. Warren's knowledge of European and Asian cuisine is exceptional, and his blending of flavours and textures creates dishes that are relaxed, clean and fresh. Warren spent many years at the exclusive Gleneagles Resort in Scotland, where he refined his knowledge of classic European cuisine. He then worked for the 6 star luxury cruise line, Crystal Cruises, before returning to Australia and Lord Howe.

"Hosting Pinetrees at Lord Howe's first Food & Wine week will be a great opportunity to talk to food lovers who come back to Pinetrees year after year for the great menu in its stunning location. Our workshops will highlight everything from making our stocks and sauces to demonstrating how best we fillet and cook our most popular Kingfish.

Supporting our 'Sea to Plate' focus is our local fishermen who supply Pinetrees everyday with top quality kingfish from what is the world's most southern coral reef ecosystem. We expect may of our guests that week will be out catching the fish themselves!" said Warren.

Pinetrees Food & Week will culminate in a 'secret box' of ingredients and 30 minute challenge for guests to test their cooking skills and take home the coveted 'Island MasterChef' title.

Pinetrees is serious about food and wine and guests will be able to indulge in a selection of wine tastings every evening by the open fire. Guests will taste a range of James Halliday's favourite wines and explore variations in style and character from different Australian wine regions.
