We enjoyed an excellent Hunter Valley wine and food tour with Jimmy, our tour guide, driver and very accomplished chef. It started with an 0630 pick up from our hotel, followed by others which meant we reached the first stop, Sydney fish market, around 0725. Jimmy explained how it worked and then went off to source some very fresh seafood that we would consume later. Many of us used the opportunity to stock up on some nice coffee as Jimmy’s van doesn’t (yet) have a coffee as part of his innovative cooking set up. 50 minutes later it was time for a brief walk around a lake whilst Jimmy cooked breakfast for us before teaching us how to roll sushi, which we would eat later at one of the wineries. It’s then an hour or so to the Hunter Valley where we visited three small boutique wineries, many of which you cannot buy on the High street. Jimmy provides an excellent meal - fresh oyster, asparagus with Parmesan and truffle oil, waygu beef sliders, crème brûlée blowtorched in front of us. Then it’s a two hour drive back to Sydney - a long day but very worth it. Jimmy provides an informative but unintrusive commentary on Sydney, wildlife etc on the way. A very enjoyable day and would recommend it.
