Taste of Sorrento

  • 1007.jpg

Sorrento will be hosting its fourth mouth watering food and wine event with a week long feast of activities including master classes, cooking demos & tastings, themed lunches & dinners, gourmet menus, wine, beer & more.

Sorrento’s food industry goes on show for the week by creating degustations, gourmet menu’s, themed lunches and dinners and more to tantalise the taste-buds and entice you to relax by the fire and enjoy the winter mood. Many of Sorrento’s restaurants, hotels and eateries have been local institutions for many years, many Age Good Food Guide listed and offering quality and varied menu’s and cuisine styles to cover most palettes.

Restaurants such as Loquat, Smokehouse, Three Palms, and Acquolina all focus on regionally inspired menu’s using the best Peninsula produce wherever seasonality allows. Both the Continental and Hotel Sorrento offer a broad range of choices whilst providing the ambiance that only historic limestone buildings can provide.

Relative newcomers to the Sorrento food scene are the very popular Itali.co restaurant with arguably the best wood-fired pizzas on the Peninsula who are the dinner stop in Taste of Sorrento’s first progressive dinner event on Friday, 30th May in the historic Koonya Hotel building overlooking the bay. Right next door is the Beach Shack in the old Morgan’s restaurant who will be hosting Geoff Lindsay in a masterclass dinner in its sophisticated and trendy surrounds, plus supporting local beer & cider’s with a Sunday afternoon festival. Also new to the scene is Cakes & Ale, right in the heart of Sorrento Village who have made their mark with using the best quality local and organic ingredients, and a contemporary and interesting menu’s. They will be serving dessert in one of the two progressive dinners on Friday 30 May, but offering cassoulet lunches, seafood extravanganza dinner plus serving local wines and products.

For fabulous fresh produce and a huge array of gourmet supplies visit historic Stringers Stores, Sciclunas Real Food Merchants or Dariwill Farm for all your cooking needs. Of course, there are very few places that don’t serve great coffee, so if you are visiting Sorrento to attend an event, make sure you take in the history, ambiance and uniqueness of Sorrento Village which also has one of the best and varied shopping strips around.
