New Zealand's Queenstown Winter Festival kicks off its 2011 celebration of winter next Friday. It is okay to celebrate winter where there is skiing to be had!
My pick of spots in Queenstown (apres ski bien sur), would be here at the newly opened Wakatipu Grill, atop Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu in the Hilton Hotel. What a view! Queenstown is located in the Central Otago wine district and that means very good Pinot Noir. And here is the perfect spot to polish it off after your meal:
Ooooh, I wish!
I am planning pumpkin gnocchi this evening. I'm pretty sure that when it's this cold, all that butter sauce can't do any damage...right?
Perhaps a Central Otago Pinot would be a fitting accompaniment and we can pretend the air con is that fab fire pit!
Happy Weekend x.
