Gourmet Camping Trip @ La Finca

Any foodie campers out there?

Here's your chance to explore gourmet cooking skills on two gas rings......

Plan is to meet at the Square at Martinborough at 3pm, then head out of town to La Finca - 16 km north of Martinborough on the Longbush Road.

We will set up camp to stay overnight, dine under the stars and breakfast in the morning. People can either head back to Welly or go check out wineries on Sunday.

La Finca is private land with a spectacular Wairarapa view. There is a caravan over there equipped with cooking and dining equipment. And a composting toilet.  There is no electricity, no tap water and no cell phone coverage.

You will need to bring

* Tent and warm sleeping gear

* Warm clothes because the Wairarapa temperatures can drop dramatically at night.

* Camping chair

* Food and wine for feasting

* Five litres of water per person for drinking, cooking and dishes - use your earthquake supplies

    I'm looking to cook a moroccan chickpea stew cos it is supposed to be delicious and uses the preserved lemons I bought for the last Dish dinner :).
