This weekend’s adventure took us to the Taste of the Huon festival. The festival is focused on food, wine, entertainment, arts and crafts from the Huon Valley, D’entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island regions of Tasmania (which all lie just south of Hobart). We lived in the D’entrecasteaux Channel region during our last stint in Tassie and it’s still where my heart is, even though this time around the place we call home is much closer to town.
Obviously there was no shortage of lovely food to try, but our highlights were:
- Manuka and Blackberry/Clover Mead from the Mountain View Meadery.
- Kentish Cherry Jam from Sleeping Beauty’s Pantry (the reference is to the mountain known locally as Sleeping Beauty rather than the fairytale character).
- Fish sausage hotdogs from Silver Hill Fisch
- And all the tarts from Bakery on Huntingfield (who sadly don’t appear to have a website).
