TFT HK Monday Update

Good morning and happy Monday!

Here's a brief round-up of last week's events, and a heads-up about what's going on with TFT HK this week:

1. We learned about sustainable viticulture and became "Tongue Explorers" with Eddie McDougall at the Flying Winemaker WineSkool:

Last Tuesday evening the TFT HK team and some of its supporters slipped on WineSkool lab coats, to be led through Eddie McDougall's Tongue Explorer class at The Flying Winemaker in Lan Kwai Fong.  Presenting us with a tongue map and four sustainable wines to taste, Eddie taught us to open our palates and our minds to the sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami flavors that combine to create the tastes we recognize as fruity, tannic, etc. He encouraged us to taste thoughtfully, and also to look beyond the bottle and be conscientious about the methods of farming used to produce the wine we drink.

A big thank you to Eddie, the Flying Winemaker team, chef Alexandre Talpaert (for the many delicious, wine-paired snacks!), and all those who came out to support TFT HK. It was a wonderful evening, and we look forward to future TFT events with Eddie!

A wonderful night for green oenophiles!

3. We're gearing up for THE BIG LUNCH on June 3rd!

We're celebrating the Queen by sharing food and getting to know our neighbors! There are still a few seats available at this Diamond Jubilee celebration, so email to save your spot for this Sunday's lunch. Thanks to Staunton's Group and Yorkshire Pudding for hosting!
