Good morning First, an exciting update on our 2018 touring schedule.  I’ve now put up the dates and details for our New Zealand ‘Epicurean Extravaganza’ tour, running from late October through mid November.  With a bit of care and belt-tightening on my part, I’ve managed to keep the price the same as it was two […]
