Tempt the taste­buds

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

The Tastes of the Goul­burn, to be held on Oc­to­ber 21, will see wine­mak­ers, brew­ers, restau­ra­teurs, pro­duc­ers, dis­tillers, grow­ers, chefs, mu­si­cians and en­ter­tain­ers pack Sey­mour’s her­itage-lined Sta­tion St to show­case their pro­duce and tal­ents.

Event or­gan­iser James An­der­son said the new man­age­ment driv­ing this year’s Tastes of the Goul­burn wanted to re­vamp and re­vi­talise the one-day fes­ti­val, while mak­ing sure to keep its ex­ist­ing for­mat.

‘‘The em­pha­sis is still on show­cas­ing lo­cal pro­duce, winer­ies and craft beers, but the new brand­ing is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the di­rec­tion we want to go in,’’ Mr An­der­son said.

‘‘We just want to freshen things up and get a new look, re-en­gage with the com­mu­nity as far as par­tic­i­pa­tion and just make it lively and fun and some­thing that’s dif­fer­ent . . . not just go­ing through the mo­tions as far as what’s been done be­fore over the years.

‘‘The whole look of the space will change for peo­ple. It’s a lit­tle bit more dec­o­ra­tive, more colour­ful.’’

Fel­low or­gan­iser Sam Booth said vet­eran at­ten­dees would find both new and fa­mil­iar at­trac­tions at this year’s Tastes of the Goul­burn.

‘‘We’ve got a new sec­tion of the fes­ti­val, it’s called the Goul­burn Pro­duc­ers Kitchen, where we’ll be us­ing lo­cal pro­duce and team­ing up with a lo­cal chef to put to­gether dishes based on that,’’ she said.

‘‘We’ve also got the Goul­burn Op­tions Rock Band, the Sey­mour Per­form­ers Work­shop — they’ve per­formed ev­ery year, but they’re such a crowd favourite — a jazz band from Euroa, and a pretty cool DJ (Mike Gur­ri­eri) com­ing up from Mel­bourne as a fea­ture act.’’

Tal­ent: Mu­si­cians will be part of the line-up at this month’s Tastes of the Goul­burn.
