Northern Tasmanian cheese will be centre-stage at Hobart’s premier food and wine event.
TasFoods event manager Freya Griffin said Tasmanian Food Co. cheese from Pyengana Dairy and Robur Farm Dairy would feature at The Fromagerie at the Taste of Tasmania.
In a first this year, cheese tasting flights with matched beer or wine would be on offer to patrons with festival neighbours Seven Sheds and Home Hill coming onboard.
“We are essentially responding to our customers who supported us last year,” Ms Griffin said.
“They loved the Fromagerie and also mentioned they wanted more options for smaller tastes at each stall, so the tasting flight is a delicious option to mix it up and enjoy the full Taste festival experience.
“Seven Sheds will have their Platypus 400 which celebrates their 400th batch and combines uses locally produced buckwheat and hemp seeds to create a unique flavour and Home Hill will have their wines that have a host of awards.”
Cheese plates and share platters will also be on offer.
“There is a special synergy created by working with other Tasmanian producers and the Taste is a great opportunity to showcase how well the flavours of the island go together,” she said.
The Fromagerie will be located just outside the entrance of the Taste on Castray Esplanade.
