Food lovers should head to the Taste Norfolk Island Food Festival next month.
The fourth annual Taste Norfolk Island will be held from November 27 to December 21 2017.
It will showcase the best of talented local chefs, cooks, eateries, artisans and primary producers in a host of stunning settings.
Norfolk Island has grown to be a food-lover’s destination with fresh fish, succulent beef and pork, fruit and vegetables picked daily, boutique products including artisan cheese, honey, handmade chocolates and a winery plus more on the island’s doorstep to offer a true paddock to plate experience.
The local community, which brings forth generations of passion and resourcefulness, will present menus representing an amazing blend of cultures and pass on some of their tips and secrets on the creation of the many and varied dishes to be enjoyed throughout the week-long event.
Festival guests will also sit down to a spectacular Thanksgiving Day Feast celebrating the tradition passed down over generations by the island’s Pitcairn and American Whaler ancestors.
