It could be just one of the many culinary reasons why you would want to save the date of this year’s Tastes at the Bay, taking place from 3-5 November.

In addition to the chocolate and cheese making, visitors to the annual Nelson Bay event can also meet celebrity chefs, attend a jazz luncheon cruise or sample dishes and wines from some of the finest local eateries and establishments.

Now in its 14th year, the Tastes festival has become synonymous with everything that makes Port Stephens such a major attraction to tourists and locals.

Organiser Peter Clough and his dedicated team of workers have been busy planning a program over two entertaining and fun-packed days that suits all-comers.

“The Tastes is a special and unique event with free entry to the public and this year we expect more than 12,000 visitors over the entire weekend,” Mr Clough said.

“There will be a cooking demonstration marquee in Apex Park showcasing signature dishes from local restaurants, as well as celebrity chefs, local wineries, Tomaree High School hospitality students and oyster shucking.

“The chocolate and cheese making demonstrations are sure to draw large crowds, and we are expecting another sell-out for the jazz luncheon cruise on the Moonshadow.

“Other features include a high tea and a winemakers dinner at the newly constructed Nelson Bay Golf Club.”
The Seabreeze Hotel is sponsoring the 2017 Tastes.
