On Sunday the 15th of July, 80 members and family made the trip to Pangallo Estate for a Porchetta picnic.
On arguably the coldest winters morning thus far, we met at McDonald's car park at Thornleigh, where we began our journey.
Crusing along the road toward the hunter valley, our destination Pangallo. Upon arrival, members were greeted by the friendly staff, offering preserved locally produced olives and oils, fresh fruit and wine! All for tasting and purchase.
Our members and; guests, in true IMSMC fashion, brought “appetizers” (enough food to feed a small army!), sharing their own samples of home made goodies, for all to enjoy, whilst many basking in the glorious sunshine the day offered and meandering through the orchards.
Just prior to lunch being served, member Anthony Vecchio presented Lino De Iulio with a “green, white & red” hand made walking stick, as we commemorated Lino recently becoming a “Grandfather”. Looks like we’ll need a fair few of these, as the IMSMC community continues to grow!
Without further ado, the Porchetta was served by the wonderful staff at Pangallo Estate. A HUGE success. We should add that “their wasn’t any left over”, with each guest sufficiently satisfied with the offering.
Thank you to the staff at Pangallo Estate for a fantastic experience. Thank you to all the guests, for your contributions.
This event will definitely be repeated in the future. Certainly lays claim to be one of our best!
