Tell us about your interest in Food?

I was raised near the Napa Valley in CA, USA...where wine & healthy eating are a part of daily life. I have taken many cooking courses and more specifically attended Le Cordon Bleu in New York City as well as a two year course at the Culinary Institute of America, Napa campus. In addition I have been an amateur chef catering parties, etc. in CA., before I came to NZ and founded Feast & Vine. Feast & Vine designs many programs for off-shore visitors who wish to experience NZ wine & well as for locals with our newly released Tour, Taste & Cook with restaurant critic David Burton at Moore Wilson's workshop room. I also work closely with many talented Wellington chefs to create exclusive and unusual wine/food match programs.

Do you have any particular Food related talent to share?

Yes, my company Feast & Vine where the art of matching wine with food is the core focus.

What sort of Food activities would you be interested in?

Anything and everything professionally conducted and interesting!


I'm Donna McCormack of Feast & Vine. My company designs events that promote the successful pairing of food and wine. I want to share what makes a successful wine & food match and why certain wines make better matches with certain foods than others.

What Donna M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I am new to the group and the Glengarry's event was my first. I am really looking forward to the Dish #41 dinner tomorrow night. I love the idea of a group of foodies coming up with creative and inventive ways to enjoy food/wine around town together and I am really impressed with the way in which the web site is handled, very professional and well thought out. I like the idea that there is follow up after an event as I'm very excited to be a part of this group.
