Aus Savour Tasmania 2011

International line up of world class chefs announced for Savour Tasmania

A hit since it was launched in 2009, Savour Tasmania is a showcase of outstanding local ingredients, passionate, innovative producers and creative culinary talent. Presented by the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts - Savour Tasmania is an international food event that shines the spotlight on the excellence of Tasmanian Produce.

This year's Savour Tasmania promises an exceptional array of renowned international chefs working alongside local restaurateurs and chefs for a series of master classes, lunches and dinners in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie from 25th May to 6th June.

Chefs included in the 2011 program are:

Martin Bentzen - head chef and Anders Selmer - winemaker/sommelier from Fiskebaren, Copenhagen.
Martin Boetz - executive chef at Longrain Sydney and Melbourne - our very own advocate of South East Asian cooking.

They will be joined by Tasmanian chefs Ainstie Wagner and Andre Kropp in an interpretation of artist Luke Wagners haunting Tasmanian landscapes.

The guest chefs are invited to participate in a series of food events that affirm Tasmania's reputation for quality and the passion of its local producers. They each become part of the international network who have experienced first hand the unique food and wine culture that Tasmania is proud to cultivate and help to carry that message around the world.
