Jeremy sits in a tailored blue suit, sipping coffee and discussing the pair’s plan to bring something rather special to this state, with measured gusto.
We’re in Fresh Café on Launceston’s Charles Street, just a couple of doors down from what will soon be the city’s newest spot for food, wine and a little something in between.

A former motorcycle garage that’s now serving single origin coffee, pies and pumping out the Sex Pistols. Off Center is a new addition to Launceston’s bubbling café scene and boy is it good.

Massimo Mele picked up a bunch of spinach and couldn’t believe his eyes. Nor could he believe its refrigerated state a couple of days after buying it from Hobart’s Farm Gate Market: still so green, so alive. While he can’t credit his entire move to Tasmania to spinach, the chef admits it’s an example of the emerging food scene that lured him back.

You’ll soon discover Tasmania is divided into regions of distinct people and localised produce. Hobart is a hive of politics, art, edgy eating and late nights dotted with whisky sours and the lights of Salamanca. Besides some of this planet’s most recognized pristine beaches, the East Coast casually serves up walnuts, olives and oysters. Up north, enterprising youngsters are beginning a fresh wave of modern food, craft beer and superb coffee. And along the Northwest Coast and beyond, there’s a string of honest operations offering you a detailed taste of a region dominated by red dirt, lush hills and the unforgiving Bass Strait. What’s to follow are a few, but by no me ...
