It seems timely right now to celebrate the good things about Canterbury after so many of the bad, which have plagued this region with fires last week and the sixth anniversary this month of its devastating earthquakes of 2011.

So, if you’re free at 3.15pm today, tune in to  Jesse Mulligan’s show on RNZ National where he will chat with me about a food event run by winemakers – it’s called Forage North Canterbury and is all about looking at the world around us in a different way – we are surrounded by food and this great event (now in its third year) is all about finding that food, preparing it… and enjoying it with the great wines of the North Canterbury region.

Forage North Canterbury is a non profit making event which was held at the end of January and is organised by winemakers and hosted at Pegasus Bay Winery – here is my story: http://www.joellethomson.com/?s=forage+north+canterbury
