10 Taste Of Tasmania Meals You Wish You Were Eating Right Now

How was YOUR lunch?

Hobart’s annual food festival, the Taste of Tasmania, just wrapped up and now it’s time to frantically scroll through the #tasteoftasmania hashtag, discarding any pangs of envy (or is that hunger?) in search of lunch inspiration.

The festival ran for a week from December 28 to January 3, offering entertainment, ticketed food and wine experiences and a smorgasbord of fresh produce stalls selling the finest food, wines, beers and ciders that are all proudly Tasmanian. Onya Tassie.

Our frenzied scrolling unearthed the below Instagram images of things we wish we were eating right now, but aren’t. There’s always next year.

Feast your eyes.

Bao down for this Mint pulled pork bao.

This meal certainly cuts the mustard.

I think that Savage Garden song ‘I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You’ is actually about these deep fried potato skins.

I’m sorry mum and dad, but this mac’n’cheese pie is my family now.

A little bit of cured meat in my life, a little bit of green beans on the side, a little bit of fried squid’s all I need, a little bit of cheese wheel’s what I see.

Oh, this? It’s just a salted caramel ice cream sandwich, nothing to see here.

If you don’t enjoy a cheese and wine platter in Tasmania, have you really even been to Tasmania at all?

Taste may be over but Tasmania’s food culture is amazing year-round. Book a trip there with Qantas.
