A raft of new dining experiences have been announced in the Taste of the Beaches event program, with over 30 local businesses getting involved to make the month of May the tastiest the Beaches have ever seen.
Running from 1-30 May, hospitality businesses throughout the peninsular will be hosting unique culinary experiences, along with a number of signature events including the Council-run Manly Beach Front Restaurant presented by The Steyne Hotel and the Palm Beach Wine Garden.
Mayor Michael Regan said he was delighted that Council could support so many local businesses that will be participating in this flagship event through the grants program, that will showcase all the best food and drinks made and created locally.
“Taste of the Beaches will bring together some of the best restaurants, cafes, craft brewers and wineries in a family-friendly environment for a month-long celebration of gastronomic delights.
“Northern Beaches residents have had a tough year, and now we can enjoy a vigilant return to normal daily life with a celebration of everything that makes this a great community.”
International travel may be off the menu for now, but Taste of the Beaches will have you around the world, and back again this May.
Take in the beautiful Sardinia with Giovanni Pilu’s degustation, visit a Tokyo style street market with Daniel San, take a spice journey at Coya, dress up and enjoy a Eurovision themed dinner at Fika, walk through the rich history of Israel at Fuel by Night, feel the vibe at an Austrian pork knuckle party or take the family to Italy with a hands-on pizza making at Sale Pepe.
Blend that together with local brew events at 4 Pines and 7th Day, charcuterie at the Park House, roasting and tasting coffee at Nine Yards and a five-course degustation dinner by renowned chefs at the Dunes in Palm Beach and you have your month covered.
In accordance with current COVID Health Orders, the traditional Taste of Manly event could not run this year, however, this tasty initiative will celebrate our region’s diverse culinary experiences and support our local businesses through the Taste of the Beaches grants program.
