The Taste Norfolk Island Food Festival is back from 26 – 30 November 2018 and once again will be showcasing magnificent locally grown, fresh, organic produce presented by a talented line-up of Chefs.
Norfolk Island is a food lover’s destination boasting 20 plus eating out places presenting the freshest of fish, succulent beef and pork, a selection of in-season fruit and vegetables picked daily and boutique products including artisan cheese and honey, and many more paddock to plate experiences.
Thanksgiving Day activities are also being held over from the week prior’s official day so it can be celebrated during this popular annual Festival. Norfolk Island remains one of the few places outside the US to mark this special day, which dates back to when American whalers were living on the island.
