Food lovers in Australia will have a new destination to satiate their taste buds for a few days because the Taste of Melbourne 2015 Festival is just around the corner. It will be held from Thursday until Sunday.

More than 15 of the Melbourne’s newest and greatest restaurants including Pastuso and South Africa's Five Hundred, will give foodies the chance to sample their most delectable dishes, according to the official website of the Taste of Melbourne Festival. Visitors at the event can enjoy some of the yummiest dishes for four days. It promises to have a subtle blend of flavours from different parts of the world.

The key highlight of these restaurants is the luxury open-air setting of Pelican Lawn, Albert Park which will turn into a massive outdoor restaurant for the four-day Taste of Melbourne 2015 festival. There are other attractions too, such as the South African Garden, the Electrolux Taste Theatre and the Mamasita Mezcaleria and Masterclasses. Exotic food culture will take the centre stage here as the art of food and cooking will be presented by more than 100 artisan producers.

The festival, which is organised in partnership with Electrolux, will also have cooking and cocktail making classes. Live musicians and stall holders will add to the flavours here. Visitors can also enjoy some alone time with a drink at the Garden Bar or Rekorderlig Cider Bar. They can even grab a bite of delicious food there as well.

The Taste of Melbourne festival gives a chance for people to not only enjoy good food but to also indulge in unique recreational activities, such as Brighton beach mini-sessions, knitting projects for all levels and the cupcake and dessert walking tour. This festival will also feature the restaurants Luxembourg Bar and Bistro, MoVida, Milk The Cow, Gladioli, Gazi, Circa, Saké Restaurant and Bar, The Prince, Supernormal, San Telmo, Pei Modern and Royal Mail Hotel. The mavericks of the dining industry, Chef Andrew McConnell and Chef Robin Wickens, will offer their delicacies in the luxe setting.
