TASTE & SEE IS A FEAST FOR THE SENSES
Taste & See with the Nine Network and Feast TV lets viewers and foodies go inside the show. They get to taste the food and meet the people responsible for creating the dishes and drinks. Its unique format (and unique outdoor setting) intersperses segments from the show with live demonstrations and interviews, which are shown on the Public Media Common’s two-story screens. “It’s like broadcasting a live show while the event is going on,” says Neville. “It’s entirely original and really, really fun.”
Taste & See is a well-priced, alfresco evening out the third Friday of the month, May–September. Two to three small food portions from up to 10 restaurants and drink vendors are included in the ticket price.
Tickets are $15 each or $60 for all five events. Tickets for last year’s Taste & See sold out quickly; don’t delay, purchase your tickets now.
Event starts at 7:00 p.m.
Food and select beverages served from 7:00–8:30 p.m.
Music and cash bar from 7:00–10:00 p.m.
