TASTE TO SHOWCASE THE BEST IN LOCAL FOOD

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Maitland Taste is set to tempt the tastebuds on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March, at The Levee.

Visitors to Maitland Taste will have the opportunity to experience fresh food, coffee, wine and desserts at the event. With a diverse program including live entertainment, kids activities, a fresh food precinct and two stage programs, there will be something on offer for the whole family to enjoy.

Highly acclaimed chef Cory Campbell who grew up in the Hunter and has worked at Matt Moran’s award winning Barangaroo House in Sydney, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and the two Michelin Star ‘Noma’ in Copenhagen will feature on the Kitchen Stage alongside local top chef Bryce Reynolds of COQUUN and Connie Griffiths of Tranquil Vale.

This year’s Garden Stage MC is Director of Garden to Table Permaculture, Megan Cooke. With a wealth of experience in horticulture, permaculture and outdoor education, Megan will be talking about the joys of growing food at home on a shoestring budget whether you have a balcony garden, suburban block or acres.

New to the Maitland Taste line up in 2019 is the Wellness Space, where Harry’s Yoga Studio will be showcasing healthy lifestyle choices and conducting talks on yoga, meditation, diet and sound healing. Hunter Valley Amateur Beekeepers Association will also be there for the first time, with beekeepers offering a variety of talks on Saturday and Sunday.

Council’s Coordinator Events Adam Franks says, ‘Maitland Taste is a celebration of the best food and produce on offer in the Hunter. It’s going to be a great weekend and I’d encourage locals to head down to take part.’

Maitland Taste is on from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March. For more about the event visit maitlandtaste.com.au
