Upper Hutt Leader : June 22nd 2011
37 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JUNE 22, 2011 NEWS Our city on a plate? COMMERCE COMMENT Paul Lambert, business liaison manager, Upper Hutt City Council. The food and beverage sector of business in our region is regarded as one of the priority sectors. Last week the full pro- gramme for what is now regarded as New Zealand s premier culinary festival, Visa Wellington on a Plate, was launched. It is great to see five venues in Upper Hutt participating in the festival, which runs from from Friday, August 5, to Sunday, August 21. You can check out the full programme at wellingtonona- plate.com. The event is organised by our regional economic develop- ment agency, Grow Wellington and Positively Wellington Tourism. It puts the spotlight on our regional food producers and can attract visitors into our region. Last year organisers set up a cafe in Sydney for two weeks and exported our food scene there. It was a resounding suc- cess for promoting Wellington as a culinary destination with vineyards nearby. Travel from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to Wellington is regarded almost as domestic travel. After all, we are a lot closer than Perth. The festival is now in its third year and has already established a winning format. The Dine programme has many fine eateries offering a set lunch or dinner menu at reasonable prices with glasses of matching regional wines. In Upper Hutt, Bell House and The Mayfair are part of the Dine section. The Burger Wellington Competition is also part of Dine and The Mayfair Cafe has called its entry Mary had a little lamb . The festival includes more than 80 events across various areas of interest from food classes to family events. Staglands Wildlife Reserve has Kiwi Bush Tucker for Kids on Sunday, August 14, and The Short Straw Cafe Super- heroes and Super Treat on Saturday, August 6 and 13. The Tote and Furnace has the Brew Balanced Banquet (boutique beer matched with local regional food) on Wednes- day, August 17. Check to see which events require bookings -- it is essen- tial for most. Some events have already booked out -- be quick so you don t miss out. You will see some festival banners appear in Main St closer to the event. Upper Hutt i-SITE Visitor Centre has a free brochure you canpickupat90MainStofall the eating locations in Upper Hutt. A new addition to Visa Wel- lington on Plate this year is the Wellington Bake Club -- a bit like a book club. Check it out. Maybe Upper Hutt can pro- duce the winner from among its ranks.
