Journeys : Dec Jan 2010
Hobart's waterfront comes alive for Tasmania's iconic Taste Festival from 28 December to 3 January. For seven days and nights the Taste Festival brings together Tasmanians and visitors alike to celebrate the state's finest produce, wines, beers and unique culture. This year's theme is Shared Taste, celebrating the diverse and unique elements of our culture and the new tastes our migrant communities have brought to Tasmania. A week-long Living Recipes program has gathered our island's African, Bhutanese, Indian, German and Italian communities to photographically document and catalogue their recipes, stories and tradition s. Looping displays of these Share the Taste! images and recipes will be displayed at the Festival. In another first for this year, Tasmanian wine enthusiasts will have a chance to talk with Tasmania's winemakers as they host tasting sessions. The sessions will be hosted by winemakers exhibiting at the Festival. Other highlights of the seven-day event include the YouChew short film series showcasing Tasmanian produce. Some of our best chefs will hold master classes in the Food and Beverage Theatre, and well- known Australian foodie Maeve O'Meara of Food Safari will also make a guest appearance.
