Tasmanian treats at the Taste of Sydney


This year’s Taste of Sydney will see a gourmet line up in the Tasmanian Pavilion. The impressive range of local produce will educate and excite visitors with gastronomic delights and classy beverages from the state's wild places. The Pavilion will be the largest on site and it will showcase why Tasmania has earned the reputation of ‘the gourmet state of Australia’.

Inside the Pavilion visitors can sample some of Tasmania’s best known produce grown and harvested in its world-renowned cool climate, clean air, fertile soils and pristine waters.

A selection of Sydney’s fabulous chefs and industry experts will be cooking up a storm in the demonstration kitchen using the best fresh produce. Ben Farley from the BBQ School will be sharing how to become a BBQ star using quality Tasmanian beef.
