Peninsula Picnic Eat/Drink Focus: Martin Webster

What would we find in your dream picnic basket? Probably nothing too out of the ordinary. Essentials would be good bread and olive oil, some nice, ripe cheese, some seasonal fruit and a bottle of wine. I've been known to bring a dozen or so oysters to picnics also.

What's your favourite wine to bring on a picnic and why? It'd been my routine for a while to bring a bottle of pinot noir. However at the last couple of picnics I've been to I've brought a bottle or two of sparkling or champagne — it really gets the vibe going.

What are you most looking forward to about Peninsula Picnic? I'm pumped to catch up with some other local restaurants and producers, it's rare that we are all in the same place at the same time. I'm a huge music fan also, so it'll be great to see some live acts.

What do you think about one-day boutique festivals like this where the food and drink component is just as important as the music? It's such a great event idea. I love it. The fact that you can indulge in the best of both worlds is a huge drawcard for me. I wish there were more of them around.
