The upcoming Toast of the Coast Exhibition offers a chance to discover the hidden gems of Tasmania’s fine food and wine scene.
Launched this week, the main event takes place on Tuesday, August 30 and will allow attendees to experience the wonderful tastes of fresh, local produce.
Event management students from the Devonport campus of the Tasmanian Polytechnic have managed and coordinated the event, showing the talents of the region’s students as well as the vibrancy of its home grown products.
Course teacher John O’Donnell told the Devonport Times that support from local producers had been superb, with charitable donations including delicacies such as pickled octopus, cherry liqueurs and lamb to name just a few.
Mr O’Donnell also said the event was aimed at giving students “hands-on learning”.
“It will help to connect the students with the industry,” he said.
The exhibition takes place at the Drysdale Polytechnic from 15:00 to 19:00 and features cocktail hour from 17:00 to 18:00, as well as raffles with great prizes and product demonstrations.
There is also plenty of entertainment for the kids.
For anyone planning to visit Devonport or surrounding areas at this time, it promises to be a fascinating afternoon full of vibrant smells and tastes.
