Showcase for new flavours
VISITORS to the inaugural Pure and Obscure Festival can take their tastebuds out of their comfort zone.
The first of its kind, the event is being held at the Tasmanian Food and Wine Conservatory tomorrow.
Organiser Brielle Mason said the aim was to showcase unique creations by the state’s boutique food and drinks producers.
“We’ve been dealing with a whole range of local producers since we started here four years ago and what we’ve noticed lately is there are quite a few making some really interesting and very different products,” she said.
“Producers are looking for really different things so they can stand out.”
Miss Mason said the combination of Tasmania’s quality produce and the producer creativity made for a range of unusual but very tasty products.
“What we’re trying to do is get people out of their comfort zone so they will try something different.”
The festival run from 11am to 5pm at the Parramatta Creek venue with live music throughout the day. The conservatory’s outdoor kitchen, The Bus, will also be open along with the converted container cocktail bar.
Tickets cost $20, which includes live music and product sampling.
