What’s On | Virtual tasting event
Join a virtual celebration of the region’s food and drink this month
Are you a big fan of our area’s food and drink? Well, you might be interested in an online tasting event to be held later this month.
Organised by two well known Norfolk foodie names: Wild Knight Distillery, based in West Norfolk, and Charlie Hodson, founder of Hodson & Co Cheese Room with Delicatessen in Aylsham, the event takes place over Zoom on March 26.
A tasting box is available at £67 (including delivery) and includes Boadicea gin from Wild Knight Distillery along with an accompanying tonic from Merchant’s Heart Spirit Enhancers, St Jude cheese supplied by Charlie Hodson, smoked salmon from Staithe Smokehouse, garlic and black pepper salami from Marsh Pig Charcuterie, tomato chilli jam from The Tea Lady, hand-roasted Nicaraguan Jinotega coffee beans from Give it Some Beans Coffee, and Peter’s Yard Sourdough crackers and flatbreads (gluten-free option available).
Guests buying the tasting box will be sent a link to join the virtual tasting which will see the producers introducing and talking about their products, as well as providing advice on the best way to serve them.
Steph Brown, co-founder of Wild Knight Distillery, says: ‘Due to the lack of events over the past 12 months, we felt that it would be great to connect with our customers again, even if only virtually, so we’ve brought together a whole group of our local producer friends in a delicious tasting box. It’s a real treat for any food and drink lover!’
Charlie Hodson adds: ‘From gin distilling wizards and cheese churning magicians to the Queen (and King) of the chutney world, East Anglia is the most perfect harvest ground to fulfill every foodie desire. Taste of East Anglia is an important way to showcase our amazing county’s artisan food and drink producers, of which I am so proud.’
