Flashback: Taste of Melbourne 2009

This year's Taste of Melbourne Festival was held between the 26th and 29th of August. It is an extraordinary  annual event, showcasing a smorgasbord of delicious food and drink from premium restaurants in Melbourne, as well as being a destination for a market where food producers have the opportunity to flourish their specialty goods - we can browse through, sample and purchase their products. 

Unfortunately, I did not attend the festival this year, as it is a hectic time for me with studies and work, but I was lucky enough to experience the buzz and excitement of all things food at last year's event on 30th August 2009. I loved Maha's Turkish Delight Filled Doughnuts with Pinenut Sugar and Rosewater Honey, and Fifteen's Slow Roasted ‘Berkshire’ Pork Belly with Lentil Du Puy and Salsa Verde.

Here's a couple of snaps:
