Every week magazines, newspapers and TV bring us more more exciting news on food and drink from the coolest state in Australia.
This little island is really delivering flavour and texture sensations way above its size.
Hardly any major mainland companies are down there yet, the produce is from small family and artisan makers. Not big business but big heart and soul, pure and sustainable.
Which is why we were delighted when on our desks late last year arrived the first major publication telling us all about Tasmanian wine. With contributions by legends James Halliday and Andrew Pirie Hobart-based author Tony Walker, with a sterling career in fine food and wine, takes us from the beginning up to the present day. Not just thoroughly researched but delicious writing too, you can almost taste the wines rising from the paper.
With photos on almost every page you really feel the history and get to know the people producing so much good stuff.
Time to start your tastebuds racing with a visit to www.providoretasmania.com.au where you can find sample pages and an opportunity to buy this book which should be in every winelover’s library.
