TASTE OF AUCKLAND

EVERY FOODIES’ PLAYGROUND

Join us for the most delicious event of the year, with Queens Wharf transforming into every foodies’ playground from 31 October – 3 November! 

This feature-packed festival is your opportunity to get fully immersed in the best of our food and drink scene in a fun-filled afternoon or evening. Spend a day on Auckland’s iconic waterfront, dining on signature dishes from some of our best restaurants. Get up close and personal with your favourite chefs, taste your way through amazing wines, craft beers and cocktails. Discover new treats, try one of our interactive classes or luxuriate in a VIP experience. 

New festival themes to explore include Spice Alley, Ocean Terrace, The Shed and Decadence Collective, showcasing signature dishes from some of Auckland’s most exciting restaurants, and gourmet treats, condiments, fine wines and chef favourites just waiting to be discovered. 

New on this year’s restaurant line-up are Ponsonby newcomer Epicer, serving up modern Indian cuisine by Michelin starred chef Manjunath Mural, the bustling inner city Hugo’s Bistro, and Herne Bay favourite Andiamo. Also making an appearance for the first time are waterfront seafood eatery the Crab Shack and Collab Kitchen by Paris Butter & Friends, a collaboration led by chef Nick Honeyman. 

Kyle Street and Jordan MacDonald return for the second year with Culprit and their fresh and seasonal take on fast food at Lowbrow. Also making a return with new inspired dishes are popular Asian fusion eatery Xoong with chef Cameron Knox and oyster specialists Shucker Brothers, with more restaurants to be announced in the coming months.

From further afield, one of the biggest names in the global culinary scene, Marco Pierre White, is a special guest at New Zealand’s largest food festival. If you’d like to see Marco at the festival, we’d recommend you purchase a ticket to Friday Evening (Session 3), Saturday Afternoon (Session 4) or Saturday Evening (Session 5) session of Taste.

Shop-a-holic? Taste has you covered with more than 80 artisans with everything from chocolate, cupcakes and cocktails. Meet the brewer, chat with the winemaker and get tips from the growers.  

TICKET OPTIONS
Taste of Auckland functions like a restaurant with a lunch and dinner service. A Taste session lasts for 4- 5 hours to give you time to enjoy your pick of restaurant dishes, browse the artisan stalls, do some shopping, enjoy some of the many exciting features and meet some fabulous personalities. Tickets are sold for each session and are only valid for the time and date indicated on the ticket. As the event date gets closer some ticket allocations may run out at which point the next release of tickets will go on sale for a slightly higher price. Sessions may differ in price, so check a couple to see which appeals most to you.
