Taste of Auckland

Between the 13th and 16th of November, Western Springs will be the tastiest park in Auckland, coming alive with pop-up food stands from the country's finest food and drinks producers.

Taste of Auckland welcomes food lovers to its four-day festival this November. Located, for the first time, in Western Springs the event is set to impress. The festival will include many of Auckland's best eateries including favourites from Waiheke Island. The Oyster Inn and Cable Bay will be making first time appearances and serving up signature dishes.

Ponsonby's new kid on the block, Farina, will be offering fresh Italian dishes while iVillage will be creating Indian treats in their on-site Tandoori oven. French food will also be represented at the festival by Sofitel's Lava Dining that will be created with the help of Head Chef Nick Honeyman. Crowd favourite, Depot Oyster Bar and Eatery, will once again be present in a new pop-up concept. Festival goers will be able to purchase freshly shucked oysters.

The Fisher and Paykel Kitchen will once again provide entertainment including demonstrations by well-known Chefs such as Kyle Street (Depot), Ben Bayly (The Grove) and Nic Watt (Masu). Australian celebrity sommelier Matt Skinner will be in attendance once more to lead a series of wine tasting masterclasses with Plumm glassware.

New attractions this year include the G.H.Mumm Champagne Bar, the Dilmah Tea Garden and NZ Avocado Urban Garden Experience.
