Celebrity Chef Adam Liaw to tantalise at Taste
This year’s Maitland Taste will be one of the most delicious yet, with celebrity chef Adam Liaw set to serve up the goods on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March at The Levee Central Maitland.
Adam is a cook, writer and television presenter based in Sydney. Adam is the author of six cookbooks, a weekly columnist for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and Sunday Life magazine and his SBS television series Destination Flavour, has seen him travel through Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Scandinavia, China and Singapore. The series also won the 2016 AACTA award for Best Lifestyle Television program.
With over 700,000 followers on social media, Adam’s presence has been ranked as the most influential in the Australian food industry. You can follow Adam on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Twitter. Adam is also UNICEF Australia’s National Ambassador for Nutrition.
Adam says, ‘The events of the start of this year have highlighted just how important our regional communities and centres are to Australia, and this year’s Maitland Taste couldn’t come at a better time to put that into perspective.
‘Taste is a wonderful festival, and a much needed opportunity for producers, restaurants, home cooks and the whole community to show that what we eat and drink is what brings us together. Whether it’s a beer at the pub, a bottle of wine and a good meal with friends, or a simple weeknight dinner, life happens around food.’
In addition to appearances from Adam, who will take to the Flavour Stage several times during the weekend, festival goers will be treated to a diverse program of activities featuring cooking and gardening demonstrations, live art, produce markets, and lots for the kids.
Council’s Events Officer Tori Evans says, ‘We’re over the moon to have Adam at Maitland Taste this year. His food is quite obviously world class and he has a fantastic reputation in the industry. I think he will be a great addition to the festival, and I encourage everyone to come along and learn from one of the best.’
Maitland Taste is on from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March. For more about the festival go to maitlandtaste.com.au
