Melbourne foodies take note, the Taste of Melbourne festival returns this September. Taking place at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th of September, Taste of Melbourne brings together award winning chefs and the very best Melbourne restaurants under one roof.

The 2011 Taste of Melbourne festival program has just been announced and participating this year will be a huge range of celebrated Melbourne establishments, including The Botanical Restaurant (Executive Chef Cheong Liew), The European Restaurant (Executive Chef Ian Curley), The Kitchen Cat (Owner and Executive Head Chef Tobie Puttock), Longrain Restaurant and Bar (Executive Chef Martin Boetz), Mahjong Black - Chinese Dining (Head Chef Wah Fung), Stokehouse Restaurant (Executive Chef Anthony Musarra) and Sarti Restaurant Bar (Executive Chef Riccardo Momesso).

Many more award winning Melbourne restaurants are expected to participate in various special events during the four day food and wine festival. The full listing will be revealed to the public very soon, so keep your eye on the Taste of Melbourne website for the very latest updates.

At the Taste of Melbourne event, visitors will not only be able to taste food prepared by these great establishments (in exchange for crowns), but there will also be a host of workshops on offer; for example Jaguar Gourmet Traveller WINE Theatre and De Dietrich Cooking School. Also at the event is the Taste Kitchen demonstrations stage, where leading chefs will reveal some of the tricks of the trade, plus you will get the chance to speak with the guest chefs directly at the Australian Gourmet Traveller Chef's Table. Plus, you will have the chance to purchase specialty food and wine from some of the best producers and boutique suppliers in Melbourne.

If any of the events at the Taste of Melbourne festival are of interest, it is worth looking at the just released early bird tickets, which are now on sale through Ticketek agencies and online at a discounted price. Currently there are a range of tickets on offer from Standard Entry (priced at $30) to VIP (priced at $100).

Please note that once you are inside the venue, the accepted 'currency' is crowns. $1 equals 1 crown and sample tasting dishes are priced from 8 to 12 crowns. Crowns can be purchased at various stations within the venue. You can also pre-purchase crowns with your ticket; for example the Premium ticket option includes entry and 30 crowns to use at the event for $55. For more information on ticketing and crowns, please see here and here.

For all the latest news and updates regarding this forthcoming event, be sure to visit the Taste of Melbourne website, Facebook profile and Twitter.
