Sparkling wine festival adds fizz

Tasmania’s celebration of all things sparkling – Effervescence Tasmania – has unveiled this year’s program and there are plenty of reasons to pop the cork in celebration. The Launceston-based festival, which bubbles into life on November 11, has included Hobart in the mix for its fifth festival. Effervescence Tasmania is described as one of the world’s best sparkling wine festivals, and all featured producers are by invitation only, ensuring all wines presented to guests are the best Tasmania has on offer. More than 1,200 enthusiasts took part in master-classes and attended dinners at last year’s event. And, as with every year, the highlight will be the Grand Tasting in the gardens of Launceston’s Josef Chromy winery. Australia’s first sparkling wine was produced in Tasmania from the 1826 harvest. Today, the island state is widely recognised as the country’s home of premium sparkling wine, with that market now accounting for about one third of all local wine production.

Agrarian Kitchen is ‘Top Newcomer’

The Agrarian Kitchen has been named Top Newcomer in a prestigious list of the country’s best restaurants. Young chef Ali Currey-Voumard has put her individual stamp on the popular New Norfolk eatery, which also made its debut in the 2018 The Financial Review Australia’s Top 100 Restaurants awards, gaining 34th place on the prestigious list. Four other Tasmanian restaurants made the cut as well. The Agrarian Kitchen founder, Rodney Dunn, told The Mercury: “It shows a certain level of maturity [and] Tasmania once upon a time didn’t have that representation and that variety of places.” Other local restaurants in the top 100 include: Franklin at number 14; Templo on Patrick at 45; Fico on Macquarie St at 76; and Brook Street Pier’s Aloft at 89.  For the record, Brae, which offers fine dining in rural Victoria, took out top spot for the second year running. The awards are peer-voted from a list of 500 eateries chosen by food critics and editors.

Winter Fest fires the Huon

The winter festivities continue and this weekend the chilly celebrations head south. The fifth Huon Valley Mid-Winter Fest kicks off on Friday (July 13) for three days of ‘feasting, cider, fire and folklore’. The festival celebrates the region’s apple picking history and there is plenty of hands-on action. At its core is the ancient art of wassailing – an intriguing tradition involving groups roaming between orchards and scaring bad spirits out of the cider trees to ensure a bumper autumn crop. However, if you prefer something a little more sedate, there is also an abundance of feast-worthy food sourced from the amazing array of local producers. The event has continued to grow from strength to strength, with organisers expecting 18,000 visitors to join in this year’s action. The Huon Valley Mid-Winter Fest takes place at Willie Smiths Apple Shed at Grove, a 30 minute drive south of Hobart. For more information visit: www.huonvalleymidwinterfest.com.au.

Salmon for chefs

The world can’t get enough of Tasmania’s salmon, and chefs are the big winners with a new product launched onto the market. Local salmon producer – Huon Aquaculture – has released a new Chef Series product range designed especially for food service professionals. Huon co-founder, Francis Bender explained: “Over the years, we have worked closely with a lot of chefs and we have listened to what they need in their kitchens; the same Huon quality but in larger quantities and with less fiddly packaging. This is how our Chef Series came to life.” This new range includes pate and caviars in larger 1kg sizes. There is also a new banquet-ready salmon that is hand-sliced horizontally and unique to Huon. Francis and Peter Bender established Huon aquaculture in 1986. The company now produces approximately 24,000 tonnes of salmon every year from farm sites around Tasmania.
