Taste Of Melbourne 2014

Good Evening. I hope your week is off to a good start.

This past weekend we were super excited to be attending ‘Taste of Melbourne’. If you fancy yourself a bit of a foodie you would love the Taste festivals which operate in 22 cities across the globe.

Over four days, Melbourne’s scenic Albert Park Lake was transformed into an outdoor festival where you could sample signature dishes from the cities top restaurants (no wait list required). It was also an opportunity to sample the countries best wines, beers, ciders and a huge variety of artisan produce. You could even take part in cooking classes and watch demonstrations from some of the best Chefs in the business!

This was my third year attending the event and I have to say it’s one of the most well organised events I have ever been to. You always have plenty of room to set up a little picnic in the sun and aren’t squashed in like sardines. We tend to go to the most popular restaurants first but the lines are never too dramatic. One thing I did miss this year was the cocktail making classes which I hope return to next year’s program.

What I Ate:

Burch & Purchese
peanut-choc-icecream-sandwich
The dish of the day! Peanut butter choc ice cream sandwich.

explosive-raspberry-tubes
Explosive raspberry tubes with raspberry, milk chocolate, popping candy & marshmallow.

Huxtaburger

Sondra Jr. organic tofu burger with sesame & yuzu mayo. It was absolutely delicious.

Mamasita
Mamasita-street-style-corn
Elote Callejero ‘street style’ corn, queso, chipotle mayo and lime. Always a crowd pleaser. We went back for seconds.

N2 Extreme Gelato

Ferrero Reveal. Nutella and hazelnut gelato topped with rice bubble choc served with a syringe of warm chocolate ganache.

Cacao Fine Chocolates
cacao-salted-caramel-popcorn-doughnut
Salted caramel & popcorn doughnut. So so delicious, like eating a cloud of caramel.

Drink of the day:

Two Elk Cider
Two-Elk-Cider

Berries and Lime Cider. Our pick of the day. Apparently Two Elk Cider contains no artificial flavours and is less heavy than other ciders on the market which gives it the big tick of approval from me 😀

It truly was a delicious day and I would recommend the Taste events to anyone looking for a fun day (or evening) out. You can find out more about the taste festivals here.
