Tickets go on sale this morning for New Zealand’s most celebrated foodie festival, Taste of Auckland. The festival, which has doubled in size in the past five years, will settle into its new home of Western Springs from 13 – 16 November.
Attracting more than 23,000 visitors in 2013, Taste of Auckland offers foodies the opportunity to explore some of the most exciting Auckland establishments, as well as watch top NZ and international chefs cook right in front of them.
Taste of Auckland is excited to welcome back Australian
celebrity sommelier Matt Skinner. Matt, who co-founded
Fifteen Restaurant with Jamie Oliver and Tobie Puttock, will
lead wine enthusiasts through a fun and educational wine
tasting at the Plumm Masterclasses.
As well as welcoming Matt Skinner, Auckland’s premier culinary event is set to wow fans with a line-up of local and international chefs, as well as New Zealand’s favourite food and drink brands, and some great new initiatives including the Mumm Champagne Lounge, and the Dilmah Tea Sensology experience.

BMW and Josh Emett are busy cooking up some new experiences for the festival in the Ultimate BMW Experience and another favourite, the Fisher & Paykel Chefs Kitchen returns with a line-up of the hottest chefs showcasing their skills and spilling their secrets.
“The move to Western Springs has encouraged us to innovate and grow the festival,” says Rob Eliott, Director of Lemongrass Productions, producer of the Taste of Auckland Festival.
“Our objective for Taste is to share our love of the restaurant and food scene and to celebrate the talent that makes it great. This year the support has been extraordinary. We are on track to stage the biggest festival yet and we look forward to announcing some real highlights over the coming months.”
