TASTE of the Huon is a fest-
ival that not only celebrates the
region’s fine produce, but this
year will honour the Australian
and New Zealand troops who
landed on the shores of Gal-
lipoli a century ago.
From humble beginnings 23
years ago, Taste of the Huon
on Sunday and Monday at
Ranelagh showgrounds now
has more than 80 stalls.
The event is expected to at-
tract more than 25,000 people.
This year’s event is de-
signed to give a nod to food
traditions that sustained Anzac
soldiers in 1915.
The show Chef and the
Showman, by Paul Foreman
and John X, will look at food
prepared a century ago and
give it a modern flavour.
“We will do food preserving,
damper, and as a nod to the An-
zacs even bully beef. Even play
around to create an Anzac bis-
cuit dessert all using produce
from the region,” said Mr Fore-
man, the chef in the pairing.
Army Museum Tasmania is
working with the festival org-
anisers to give patrons a taste
of ration packs used down the
Taste of the Huon is on
from 10am to 5.30pm on Sun-
day and from 10am to 4.30pm
on Monday. Cost is $9, child-
