The last post

It seems fitting for the last foodiegemsofwellie post to be on ANZAC Day.

A relocation to Napier is in the works after an adult OE, so its bye bye Welly in the near future.

I have had an absolute blast doing this over the past 8 years, writing for Wellingtonista and then Word on the Street, being a WOAP secret judge, discovering delicious new tastes, clever foodie folks, and all manner of wonderful people.

I treasure all the connections I have made, and no doubt we will see each other at foodie events either when I’m back visiting, or when you come to Napier.

And you know I couldn’t sign off without foodie pics, so here’s some beautiful pastries at Brac & Bow in Featherston recently…

Chocolate giveaway

As some of you may know, the Wellington Chocolate Factory was this year’s supreme Cuisine Artisan award winner with their Great War Bar.

WCF giveaway

This is a coconut ‘milk’ bar (52% cacao) produced last year for the 100th anniversary of the Anzac events at Gallipoli and launch of the Great War Exhibition at the Dominion Museum in Wellington. It has delicious Anzac cookie crumbs along the back of house-blended, stone ground, organic, ethically traded cacao beans.

I have been kindly provided one for a give away, so if you email the correct answer to the question below to by noon this Friday 4 March 2016, with ‘Chocolate Giveaway’ in the title , you will go in the draw to win the bar.

The winner will be notified by email, and delivery arranged.

Question – Who did the artwork for the Great War Bar wrapper?

Hint – A quick google will do the trick.
