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.

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 ...
