More to come…
Croatia Supper Club will launch at the end of September hosted by a Croatian chef, flying in for the event. Flash Pack’s most popular destination for solo travellers, Croatia – like Jordan – is not represented on the London dining scene, so this evening provides an exclusive insight into the Balkan treasure.
Slovenian Wine Tasting will also launch at the end of September to showcase the country’s ‘best kept secret’: its wines. Areas close to the Italian border typically produce wines most palatable to UK drinkers and the evening promises to reveal much more about this European gem.
