What do you get when you combine several local farmers wanting to avoid early weekend morning starts at farmers’ markets further afield, with local dedicated and passionate foodies? A small dynamic not for profit group running a weekly riverside farmer’s market, complete with the dramatic Dial Range as a backdrop!
Welcome to Cradle Coast Farmers' Market – held each Sunday from 8.30am-12.30pm at The Wharf, Ulverstone. This is a true farmers' market, making a name for themselves by connecting locals and farmers with an enticing range of award winning, fresh produce – much to the delight of the local council, who are happy to see their shiny newly redeveloped wharf buil ...

Top 10 Cafés in Hobart 2014 – Editor’...

in Reviews, Hobart

Everyone has their own favourite café, restaurant or food outlet, and we each have our own personal tastes in food. A particular cuisine may appeal to one person, but not be so exciting or tasty to the next. What one person expects in service levels, the next person may not find so important. 
The dictionary meaning of café is "a small or inexpensive restaurant or coffee bar, serving light meals and refreshments". One of the great things about the food sector in Hobart and the rest of Tasmania is there is no shortage of cafés to dine out in, or where you can pick up a coffee or juice made to your liking. 
So with this in mind, here are the Tasmanian Food Guid ...

Daci & Daci – Hobart’s Home of Heaven...

When gazing into the windows of Daci & Daci, you will believe yourself to be in a cobble-stoned street in 19th century France. Look past your reflection, and take in the wonders on display – cakes and pastries topped with fruit, the sticky glazed pastry flaking off, which draws your eye down to the chocolate éclair, the fluffy cream bursting out from between the crunchy pastry.
Next to that, an apple Danish, the fruit cut as fine as paper. Your mouth slackens, as the sweet scent of baked goods, mixed with a hint of strong coffee and fresh bread bursts in a cloud around you, as a customer pushes open the door. You follow them inside in a daze: what is this heavenly wonder?

Spreyton Cider - A Sparkling Product ...

Picture this: Tasmania – a land of mountains and valleys, of bright green rolling hills sweeping down to blue rivers running over rocks, wallabies dodging out of sight as the land levels off, and an orchard comes into focus. Thousands of trees stand in hundreds of rows. Zoom in on a leafy branch, weighted down by bright red apples begging to be plucked. A happy tune plays as a gloved hand reaches out, grasps an apple and tugs. Free, the apple joins the crate. Off it goes to the shed filled with gleaming machinery, ready for that apple to be processed into delicious cider.  
Tourists think this is a myth, and wonder how the Tasmanian countryside could be so idyllic. They dream of ...

Nant Distillery - A Tasmanian Whisky ...

It seems that whisky lovers around the world know something that Tasmanians are only just starting to realise – Tasmania produces a mighty fine whisky. It’s a product that has us being compared to the big boys from Scotland, Japan and America, and in some cases even beating them at their own game. Introducing Nant Distilling Company – the cream of our crop.
Nant Distilling Company has been on the scene since 2008, the year they completed the restoration works at Nant Estate. Built in 1821, the estate was in disrepair when the Batt family purchased it in 2004. They painstakingly rebuilt the buildings to original standard stone by stone, dredged the millpond and restored the ...

What started as a hobby at the kitchen table in Brisbane has turned into an award winning business in Tasmania, breaking the typical cheese moulds around Australia with a unique style and flavour. Or maybe that should be spelt EWE-nique. 
Sheep’s milk is more common than you may think – once you move past the fact that it is possible to milk a sheep, you’ll discover the milk can be found in yogurt, ice-cream and soaps, and is a perfect drinking milk for those who are lactose-intolerant. The majority of sheep milk from around the world is turned into cheese, and the best of these cheeses can be found here in our very own Tasmanian backyard.

Rawlings & Kirup Park Dexter Studs - A Tasmanian Success Story
Mark and Margaret Rawlings’ story begins in October 1996 in Western Australia, when they were given a cow as a wedding present. After collecting a few more females, they began to look for a bull to service their growing herd. They purchased a Dexter, and their love affair with Dexter cattle began.

What are Dexter Cattle?
Dexter cattle were highly valued by peasant farmers in Ireland in the 1800’s, because their small stature was perfect for their small tenant farms, and being a hardy animal, they thrived in the tough climate. Worldwide, the popularity had declined by the 1970’s, and the Dexter breed was ...

If there is one thing that has been lacking in the Hobart food scene for some time, it is a good choice of juice bars.
That is, until now.
The creators of Ethos have been gifting Hobart with exquisite food that many of us are familiar with, and now - as of last week - have opened their new juice bar next door to Ethos, Vita: Nature and Culture.

To be precise, it's actually a frozen yoghurt bar (or "froyo") first and foremost. But as today was our first visit to the store, we are yet to try the mouth-wateringly delicious range of housemade yoghurts such as chai, blueberry, coconut or banana. Or the delightful range of homemade toppings, including marshamallow, dried figs, fruit cake, hon ...
