Gourmania Food Tours Tasmania - Hobart
From $95.00 to $120.00
Gourmania Food Tours Tasmania was established in 2011 by former pastry chef and sixth generation Tasmanian, Mary McNeill.
Gourmania invites you to engage with Hobart city’s history and culture through Tasmania’s fabulous food and wine.
Gourmania introduces visitors and locals alike to the people with the passion driving our blossoming food scene. You will visit great local businesses - many that are off the tourist trail, tucked away in the city. The small group tours (maximum of eight on any tour) enable real connections between visitors and the places you will explore as you chat with industry professionals, and get the inside stories.

- Gourmania Food Tours introduces a new afternoon tour “Tea to Tapas”. This three hour tour starts with divine afternoon tea and grazes its way through providores and restaurants showcasing Hobart’s best and brightest. This tour introduces you to the newest hot spots. Amongst the afternoons experiences, expect some of Hobart’s best coffee at the groovy espresso bar, Yellow Bernard, delicious tastes in an intriguing converted stable, at Ethos Eat Drink, and delectable innovative treatments of seasonal local produce courtesy of award-winning chef Luke Burgess at Garagistes. This tour not only celebrates Tasmanian produce such as Pigeon Hole artisanal bread, freshly shucked Bruny Island oysters, locally bred Wessex saddleback pork, or perhaps some foraged edible flowers; there is also a distinctive international flavour as we sample the best-of imported goods: fabulous teas, French and Italian cheeses, and maybe something decadently chocolate!
