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.
