The summer holidays are just around the corner, so start planning your activities for the break ahead with a trip with Gourmania Food Tours!
The ultimate journey for any food-lover, Gourmania Food Tours takes you on a trip through Tasmania's capital city of Hobart to discover fabulous local eateries and taste the island's culinary delights.
Gourmania Food Tours Tasmania is fairly new to the tour circuit, established in 2011 by Tasmanian pastry chef Mary McNeill, who has worked in kitchens in America and most recently in Hobart restaurant Smolt.
Mary found that food tours are a 'fantastic way to engage with a city and its culture' deciding to bring her 'love of food and discovery' back to Hobart, the city in which she was born and raised.
The tours run in small, intimate groups from a minimum of one to up to eight people, with those taking the trip advised to have a light breakfast to make room for the array of taste experiences they will have on their trip!
There are three fantastic tours that foodies can embark on including The City Tour, Tea to Tapas and Farm Gate to the Plate.
The City Tour will be a morning to remember with four hours of discovering and tasting Tasmania's produce including cool-climate wines, fresh seafood, cow and goat milk cheeses, charcuterie, pastries and more!
If you're keen to head out on this tour be prepared to be 'very well fed' as you get to explore Hobart and Salamanca Place, finishing the tour with a refreshing beverage.
The Tea to Tapas Tour is an afternoon trip introducing you to the 'newest hot spots' that include espresso bar Yellow bernard and converted stable restaurant Ethos Eat Drink.
Indulge in local produce such as Bruny Island oysters and Pigeon Hole artisanal bread in this delightful three-hour afternoon tour.
The Farm Gate to the Plate tour is one experience that big time foodies should try, where you will pick fresh ingredients at Hobart's Farm Gate Market and take part in a cooking class!
You will be able to taste your creations in a three-course shared table lunch, with wine provided from local producers and also recipes and aprons to take home!
