New flavours unveiled for Taste of Tasmania


The Taste of Tasmania - the island state's premier gourmet festival - has unveiled some new tastes to be enjoyed on the Hobart waterfront from Saturday, December 28 to Friday, January 3, 2020.

The new stallholders are promising flavours from around the world using produce from Tasmania. Offerings range from sea urchin dumplings to tempeh. 

“We’re really pleased to be able to expand on last year’s program of new and emerging producers, bringing an even greater variety of food options for our festival-goers to enjoy," said Taste of Tasmania food curator Megan Quill. 

“This year new and emerging stallholders will be featured in a new dynamic space, The Marketplace, modelled on Tasmania’s roadside market stalls. Here guests to the festival can support growing businesses and sample some truly unique offerings."

Festival director Brooke Webb said: “Community, innovation, provenance and pride of place are all major themes of the festival program this year and these enterprising food and beverage offerings are really reflective of this. It gives visitors an opportunity to discover something new and help support new businesses in Tasmania’s thriving food industry.

“Our program of producers is one of the most multicultural ever seen at The Taste. Using 100% Tassie produce these producers will be introducing visitors to cuisines from all over the world including Nepal, Taiwan, Indonesia, Korea, Belgium, China, Thailand and Australian indigenous.” 

The Taste of Tasmania is also offering reserved seating for visitors wanting a guaranteed seat. 

With three, four-hour long, sessions on offer each day, reserved seating costs $25 per person on the waterfront or $50 per table on the riverside. Tickets to reserve seatt are on sale now.
