Real Journeys Walter Peak and Canyon Brewing chefs have been volunteering their time and skills to cook for local charity Baskets of Blessing, which provides frozen meals and surprise gift baskets to locals in need in the Queenstown community.
Real Journeys’ Walter Peak High Country Farm garden is currently Queenstown’s only ‘Garden of Significance’ after being awarded with a 4-star rating by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. The award also makes Real Journeys an Associate of the New Zealand Gardens Trust in 2020.
Visiting Australian celebrity chef Justin North enjoyed a chance to sample the gourmet BBQ lunch menu before heading to the kitchen to work with Executive Chef Mauro Battaglia at Walter Peak High Country Farm in Queenstown on Tuesday 7 January.
This year’s second Real Journeys Cruise-for-a-Cause, held in Milford Sound, has raised almost $26,000 to help the Wildlife Hospital in Dunedin fund a much-needed veterinary internship. In August, the first Cruise-for-a-Cause, Doubtful Sound, raised $53,200 for Queenstown group Baskets of Blessing.
