Taste of Melbourne

Posted by


Barely a month goes by that there isn’t a big food event in our fair metropolis; however November sees one of the biggest, drawing talent from all corners of the city, state and further afield. Taste of Melbourne returns to Albert Park from the 14 – 17 November – a wonderland of pitched tents, samples, booze and food.

Grab a plate of your favourite nosh from this years featured restaurants which include, but by no means limited to, Chin Chin, St Crispin, Tonka, The Botanical, Bomba and B’Stilla.

This year the festival is looking bigger and tastier. Along with our city’s best restaurants there will be a dedicated Beer Hall featuring old and new favourites in the craft brewery field, a pavilion dedicated to our Tasmanian neighbours or nurture your inner Hoodie (that’s Health Conscience Foodie) at the Healthy Taste Trail showcasing green and sustainable producers.

Guests will have the opportunity to listen and engage in discussion about the past, present and future of food through a series of free events, or learn to master the trickiest of sauces, Hollandaise at the Lurpak Butter Cookery School.

In addition to the abundance of exhibitors and tastings, guests will have the opportunity to engage in discussions with chefs, sommeliers and producers about industry related topics and visit demonstrations to see chefs re-creating their most popular dishes – from burgers by Huxtaburger to Frank Camorra’s tapas.

Taste of Melbourne is happening from Nov 14 – 17 at Albert Park.
