Taste of Auckland In Partnership With Electrolux: For Friends Who Feast.

Get your foodie friends together, Taste of Auckland is back with its biggest line-up yet. This feature-packed festival is your annual opportunity to get immersed in the best of our food and drink scene in a fun-filled afternoon or evening. Spend a day strolling through a green-grass park while grazing on signature dishes from some of our best restaurants. Get intimate with your favourite chefs, taste your way through amazing wines, craft beers and cocktails, and lose yourself in the festival village.

As if it couldn’t get more exciting, enter one of Australasia’s most award-winning chefs and MasterChef Australia judge, George Calombaris! With five restaurants across Melbourne, six best selling cookbooks and a knack at leaving you wanting more, George is as much a hero on TV as he's experimental in the kitchen. Don't miss his magic in the Electrolux Taste Theatre for legendary tips & tricks on Saturday afternoon & evening sessions.

Restaurants:
Authentic Northern Thai from Saan, next-level meatballs from Baduzzi or fusion flavour-bomb from Tok Tok? How about a modern classic from Euro, some smoky BBQ from Miss Moonshines or Russian inspired dishes from Vodka Room? Feast on modern Chinese with Artwok, French inspired cuisine with Paris Butter, authentic Indian from 1947 Eatery and a special collaborative kitchen from Eat NZ by The Cult Project.
