About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Menu for Hope is going incredibly well with almost $27,000 raised to date. You guys have been fantastic, giving so much to feed the world's hungry.

But we're not done yet.

The hard yards are still to come as the campaign is coming to an end this Friday and we don't want the momentum to slow down at this crucial stage.

So in order to help you decide which prize is worth a look, I've taken the $100 voucher from Prince Wine Store and spent it for you. That's right, you don't even need to think about what wines to buy because I've done it for you. What follows are three different choices, the hard part for you is to choose just one!

First up is a Party Pack containing a French Champers and a bottle of local bubbly, you could drink the Champagne yourself and share the sparkling, but I don't want to put any bad ideas in your heads....

Party Pack: 1 bottle Andre Clouet Rose and 1 bottle Chandon Vintage 2003.

Of course being the foodies we are, we do like to throw a dinner party or two and if you are like me, you like to make sure there is plenty of good wine to hand, so that when someone brings along the Grange, you can pop it straight into a locked cupboard and serve these wonderful wines with nary a pang of guilt....

Dinner Party Pack: 1 bottle Farr Rising Saignee 2004, 1 bottle Poggerino Chianti Classico 2004 and 1 bottle Cullen 'Cabernets' 2003

For this next pack, I decided to choose one bottle of something very special to which you would need to add $25. If you have never had Calvados in your life, I would recommend that you at least try it once. It is as fine as a good cognac but instead of being distilled from grapes it is made from apple cider which lends a wonderful perfume to the finished spirit. It is aged in barrels for a number of years, giving Calvados a certain charm and elegance like no other, you simply must try it. You could share of course...

Special Pack: 1 bottle Victor Gontier Domfrontais Calvados 1996 (add $25)

So there you are, easy peasy. Just go to Menu for Hope and bid. Code AP33

These are only ideas to help, you could of course choose everything yourself.

One of those Kracher TBA half bottles would be my pick!

Hi cam, great choice. To anyone reading this, Kracher is a wonderful dessert wine like no other, a must try. Check out the stock list at Prince Wine Store. http://prince.resultmedia.com//attachments/1165318861_9994.pdf
