Clyde will be overflowing with food and wine this Labour Weekend for the annual Cuisine at Clyde event.
Organisers have put together a programme featuring a meal and movie evening, craft beers, a wine and food match dinner and a local market showcasing the variety and quality of the food, wine and other products from the Clyde region.
Historic Clyde member and Olivers owner David Ritchie said the Cuisine at Clyde event was started several years ago to cement Clyde’s profile as a food destination and engage with as many Clyde businesses as possible.
Both objectives had been achieved and Cuisine at Clyde had become an important event on Clyde’s calendar, and received significant support from visitors and the community, Mr Ritchie said.
The Cuisine at Clyde programme starts tomorrow with a new event, a Meal & Movie evening at Paulina’s in Clyde featuring a three-course dinner and the movie The Light Between Oceans.
Then, on Saturday, Cuisine at Clyde continues with a second new event, a Brewfest, on the lawn at Olivers.
The Oktoberfest-inspired event will feature live music from Cathy Stanton and the Les Richardson ensemble and a pig on a spit.
On Sunday, Olivers will host a Wine and Food Match Dinner, with a four-course menu developed by Olivers head chef James Waite.
Well-known wine writer and judge Sam Kim and Gibbston wine identity Alan Brady, who recently shifted to Clyde, would be the special guests at the evening. Mr Kim had chosen the wines for the event and Mr Brady would speak about wine in general, Mr Ritchie said.
The programme concludes on Monday with a market in the historic Clyde precinct.
The market will feature a variety of food and arts and crafts stalls and live music.
