Highlight of our trip
NSW
, Mar 2020
Have done wine tours all over the world, and this by far was one of the Best. Having the trip led by Chef Jimmy, was also the most unique we have ever done. Entire day from pickup to drop off went off without a hitch .Excellent choices of the wineries as well. Love small groups and small family run wineries. Next time we are in NSW, plan to do his trip to the Blue Mountains. If you love Food and Wine, this is the trip to do. Paul& Deb from Toronto Canada

This is the best blend of tour group, wine tasting, and foodie trip anyone could ask for. Jimmy does an outstanding job of showing you the best of the hunter valley, thing you wouldn't see in a big group and also places you'd miss if you went on your own. He also does an excellent job with food allergies and dietary restrictions.

GREAT Food, Wine and Sites!!

What a terrific experience traveling through Hunter Valley with Jimmy! He is very knowledgeable both as a tour guide and a terrific chef as well. The timing of the tour stops were great and the sites he picked were terrific. We enjoyed the small group he leads as well. We highly recommend this tour if you to to experience great sites, great wine and an amazing assortment of great food. The only suggestion we have is the site say dress should be business casual so we wore pants, but Jimmy wore shorts so you should feel to dress casual!

Awesome Aussie Food and Wine

The chef was personable, accommodating, and knowledgeable. He maintained a great balance between the food and the wine. His food was great but he didn’t insert himself into the tasting... that was about the wine. Jimmy was happy to answer questions about any relevant topic, he was aware of time, and he broke up what would be a long drive with breaks and relevant information.

Food + Wine = Awesome experience

Going on a wine tasting trip with Chef Jimmy was amazing! What a great experience, from learning about the Sydney fish market, to a hot home made breakfast, rolling our own sushi, and then tasting wine that is paired with 5 star dishes prepared by Jimmy. During the trip Jimmy was very accommodating, knowledgable, entertaining, and overall a pleasure to be around. The wineries were delightful, being smaller, engaging, and with great selections to taste. I was impressed by how many wines we tasted and the quality of the food that was prepared. What a wonderful way to spend a day around Sydney!

The whole trip was wonderful. The food was truly spectacular especially given that it was mostly cooked from the back of the mini bus. So many wines to taste. Everyone we came into contact with went out of their way to make the trip a memorable one. Highly recommend.

The Best Way to Spend a Day in the Sydney Area
Pete S
, Jan 2020
This could be a lengthy review, only because it was just that good of an experience. First, Chef Jimmy knows the area better than most. In the morning, he provided pickup at various locations, taking shortcuts and more expeditious mean to get around the city traffic. Once out in the country, we moved rapidly around a truck fire on the M1. There was confidence in everything Chef Jimmy did. The menu had a variety of opportunities to explore this young man's amazing talents and everything is prepared from his mobile kitchen. This customized mini-bus travels with you. While stopped at multiple locations, a tapas-style dish is prepared for you, on-sight! I guess cutting this review a little shorter than anticipated is the best way for you to be pleasantly surprised for once of the best days possible.
