For those of you in Sydney, what are you up to this Tuesday night? If you’re anything like me and love all things wine and cheese, you should join The Hungry Expat on June 18 at The Fern Food + Drink in Redfern from 6 to 10 pm. My friend and colleague Paula Westerman, The Fern’s snazzy new proprietor (she took over the reins just a couple of months ago), is hosting Flights of Redfern, a special evening of international wine and cheese pairing. For only $60, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a flight of three delicious wines matched with lovely boutique cheeses – not to mention great music, lively conversation, and heaps of fun! (I’ve been to The Fern – I know of what I speak!) Plus, if you’re still hungry after your cheese teaser, you can sample Paula’s excellent selection of Latin-inspired tapas.
The Hungry Expat is co-hosting this inaugural tasting with Paula and Zigi Ozeri of nearby Zigi’s Wine & Cheese Bar in Chippendale – the first of what we hope will be a series of such “flights of fancy.” Zigi and his sommelier will be on hand to give you a crash course on the two tasty trios and to answer any questions you may have. Please join us! To book, please call The Fern on (02) 8399 0070. Hope to see you there.
