taste / teist / •
A five letter word but with a mouthful of meanings – flavour on your tongue; a small portion; have experience of; aesthetic discernment in art, literature.
Darling might well be a small town but therein lies diversity and an abundance of attractions. Watch this space for dates to The Taste of Darling 2018 where we, once again, will pull out ALL the stops and presenting a Taste of Darling.
This is your invitation join to us for the day, or better still spend the weekend, and let us spoil you with music, food, beer, wine, arts and crafts – a feast for the senses – which are all those things which reflect the variety and ingenuity of this small West Coast town.
There is much that is special about Darling, where time is still measured by the Church clock and only last week did we have a cow strolling the Main Street. Most special is that this town (or maybe “dorpie”) which on the surface may seem time-warped, has not only a huge heart but a bellyful of innovation, creativity and talent. But what else would one expect with a First Lady like Evita, a theatre like the Perron, and a train which toots its way through two or three times a day?
The “Taste of Darling” is our opportunity to put the spotlight on our hidden talents. There will be no charge for admission to the Taste of Darling although some music performances will require payment of a fee, as will the live shows at various venues, and of course nibbles and drinks, but the street music comes free!
So park your car and wander the town on foot; there is so much to see, and so much to do, for young and old alike. Come and treat yourself to a real taste of Darling where we promise you the warmest welcome and a generous serving of Platteland hospitality.
