The Taste of Melbourne festival is run by Taste Festivals. This is a company which produces 22 food festivals around the globe aimed at foodies, restaurant-lovers, and chef groupies. Regardless of the city where it’s held, each Taste festival features delicious food and superb drinks presented by the city’s best restaurants, demos and workshops featuring world famous chefs, and outstanding entertainment. Of course, Taste of Melbourne is no exception.
Taste of Melbourne is a four-day event that features six sessions set in stunning open-air surroundings. Each restaurant that participates in the event offers a choice of three “taste sized” dishes, plus a limited edition of signature dishes and festival exclusives. Attendees get a unique chance to sample over 50 restaurant dishes at an affordable price and create their own tasting menu.
Of course, tastings aren’t the only activity that attracts foodies. Taste of Melbourne offers a wide range of activities including live demonstrations and cooking masterclasses from some of Australia’s finest chefs, hands-on culinary workshops, food and drink pairing seminars, wine tasting workshops, and more. Special programs help to discover and appreciate ethnic cuisine. The festival’s Artisan Market features over 80 producers that offer high-quality products. Whether you are searching for unusual tea blends or healthy and organic products, you will find them here!
Just like other Taste festivals, Taste of Melbourne features live entertainment. Up and coming musicians from different corners of the country perform at the festival, keeping the guests entertained. The festival’s music hub is the perfect place to relax and listen to some great music without getting too distracted from the culinary experience.
