Tastebuds are sure to be tantalised and food lovers delighted as Port Douglas Carnivale’s biggest foodie event, Taste of Paradise, returns with a new name and an impressive line-up of high profile celebrity chefs.
Acclaimed celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge will headline the newly rebranded Taste Port Douglas with guest appearances throughout the day by other renowned chefs, as the Sugar Wharf is transformed into a food lover’s paradise for the day on Saturday, May 24.

Clovelly Estate and Samuel Smith & Sons have been confirmed and will represent Queensland and other Australian wine and beer suppliers as part of the event, and local restaurants Harrisons, Bucci, Nu Nu, 2Fish, Seabean Tapas Bar, Sassi Cucina E Bar and Origin Espresso are also excited to come on board selling tasting size dishes from their menus.

The event will open at 10am with cooking demonstrations on the main stage. There will be appearances by Colin Fassnidge of Master Chef and My Kitchen Rules fame, celebrity chefs Massimo Mele and Ian Curley as well as local chefs Nick Holloway, Tony Sassi and Todd Malone.

Spencer Patrick will emcee the event with plenty of playful banter between himself and the other celebrity chefs before the event winds up at 4pm.

Taste Port Douglas event organiser Reina Patrick said she was thrilled the event continued to attract high calibre guests and hoped they could beat the 3000 people who attended last year’s event.
“We are very excited to be welcoming Colin Fassnidge to Port Douglas as he has quite a number of fans and is known for his honesty and passion when it comes to food.
“We can’t wait for him to sample our local produce and see just what our region has to offer,” she said.
