The Devonport Food and Wine Festival is on again this year, with the month-long celebration of food, wine and local produce opening its doors to the public from March 1 to March 31.
And the event that is known to have something for everyone is preparing to wow audiences with an action packed program.
Visitors can talk with local growers and gain tips on how to make their favourite meals during one of the many demonstrations that will take place during the festival. Sign up to their facebook page!
A number of guest chefs will be on hand to guide foodies through the ins and outs of fine dining and share their love of quality ingredients.
Last year guests were treated to a special display on how to 'drive their barbeque' by top Tasmanian chef Nigel Squibb, who also guided a popular segment on kids in the kitchen.
Cooking classes are also on the menu, and this year will feature Tetsuya and Sally James, giving visitors the chance to try their hand at making household favourites, as well as new and exciting recipes as instructed by these top Australian chefs.
If you plan on visiting of an evening, you may like to gather a group of friends together and sample some of the regions best wine over a delicious dinner.
The festival is the umbrella event for a whole lot of happenings, so mark the ‘Taste The Harvest‘ Food & Wine event on Sunday March 11th at Roundhouse Park into your calendar.
But these are just some of the activities on offer for visitors to the city of Devonport, which is often described as one of the major cultural centres on the Tasmanian north coast.
Holidaymakers and food enthusiasts making their way to the food festival may also consider visiting the area's many tourist attractions.
The nearby Art Gallery has a large collection of artworks, ceramics and prints that showcase the city's rich history, while the Maritime Museum delves into its shipping past.
Visitors to the Devonport Food and Wine Festival in Tasmania can find this year's full program in the Friday – 24 Feb – edition of the Advocate.
