Tasmania Holiday Packages offer visits to some of the most exciting places for food lovers in the Southern Hemisphere, with impressive dishes created from locally sourced and produced organic ingredients combined by experienced and innovative chefs who know a Foodie when they see one. Here are five of our favourite Foodie places in Tasmania.
Foodies be warned, Hobart’s Garagistes doesn’t take reservations and doesn’t let you leave unsatisfied so be prepared to turn up and try your luck, and then enjoy a leisurely three or five course meal. With a grand re-opening happening in January 2014, expect main meals along the lines of Flinders Island milk-fed lamb with turnips cimi de rapa and fresh curd, and desserts with a difference. In the meantime, enjoy fine wine and food at their sister bar, Sidecar, located on Bathurst Street.read more
Langka or jackfruit is an aromatic native fruit found in the tropical regions in the Southeast Asia. The flesh of a ripe jackfruit is sweet, fibrous and starchy whereas it can be eaten raw or can be used to make a variety of dishes such as minatamis na langka (sweetened ripe jackfruit), cakes and custards, halo-halo and more. The seeds are edible too; you can just simply boil the seeds and eat it when it cooled down. The boiled seeds taste good and I refer it as the local counterpart of Castañas.
The young unripe jackfruit can be cooked in coconut milk which can be flavored in different ways according to your preference. You can add salted dried fish or daing, pork, crab or shrimps to add a delectable taste to this dish. This recipe is most often served in Filipino households.

So you want to start eating a healthier diet? It’s a great idea, because changing your eating habits and eating healthier will have a number of benefits in your life. Not only will you lose weight, but you will have more energy, feel more focused, have better skin and hair and sleep better.
Healthy eating is not about starving yourself by sticking to a very restrictive diet. You need to keep your body nourished and give it the calories that it needs to perform its daily tasks. This can be done by filling up on nutritious foods rather than foods that supply you with too much sugar, fat, carbohydrates, chemicals and empty calories.
However, one of the hardest parts of eating healthy is getting started. Our eating patterns are often based on habit. Usually, you will buy the same types of food when you are at the supermarket and you will crave the meals that you are used to. To completely change your eating habits is not as easy as you might think, it involves a little bit of effort to switch up routine and kick things into gear.read more
