The Canberra region will turn up the
heat this season for the capital's annual
winter celebration -- Fireside Festival 2010.
At this delightful festival you can sip on
an exquisite local wine, experience fine art
and meet the local creators, tempt your
palate with Canberra delicacies and relax by
an open fire with good company.
Why not use this fabulous festival as
an opportunity to challenge yourself and
try new things? Take a cooking class, a
workshop, ride a horse or treat yourself to a
relaxing hot rock treatment.
There will be degustation dinners aplenty
to delight in and you simply cannot miss
the chance to enjoy the culinary brilliance of
Grazing restaurant. Grazing in Gundaroo
is hosting a Duck and Pinot Degustation
Dinner -- a signature event for this restaurant
and a firm fixture on the calendar for many
dining enthusiasts. The Grazing chefs will
combine a series of delicious duck dishes
with local Pinot Noir's for a truly divine
experience. The dinners will be held on
August 8 and August 15 and seats cost $120
for food only or $160 with matching wines.
For the ultimate indulgence take up
Schonegg's Two Day Winterfest Indulgence

at Poacher's Smokehouse Café, a hot rock

It is not just about food at Fireside;
