2017 has been a great year for our Corks 'N' Forks food and wine group. We've enjoyed four fully-booked Vintage Room tasting/tours, three well attended dinners culminating in our annual Black Tie Henschke Dinner, and our trip away in September to the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley.
The Black Tie Henschke Dinner on November 24 - our sixth, was another great example of what we're about - good food and wine shared among friends. The six Henschke red and white wines went wonderfully with Chef's bespoke menu; my favourites being the 2015 Croft Chardonnay with the lime infused salmon, and the dinner's feature wine - the 2010 Hill of Roses Shiraz served with the cheese. The options game was again a lot of fun.
Before giving you some event dates for next year, some thanks. First, to Chef Rebecca Kaye and her team for the beautifully cooked innovative menus that went so well with all the wine matching challenges we threw at her during the year. Second, to Katrin Tali - the Club's Food & Beverage Operation Manager and her team for the friendly and professional service on the floor, and finally the Club's Events Team for all the back office work they do so well.
