Taste the World

Since it began at WOMADelaide 2004, Taste the World has introduced hungry WOMADelaideans to mouth-watering and intriguing recipes from a kaleidoscopic array of countries and cultures.

Now a regular event at WOMAD festivals worldwide, this wonderful program unites artists and audience members in a glorious celebration of gastronomy and cultural discovery that is sure to enthral even the laziest take-away devotee!

2011 featured more sessions than ever! Festival artists such as Calypso Rose, Rango and Hanggai and celebrity chefs such as Simon Bryant, Amanda Blair and Poh Ling Yeow reached out to the audiences taste buds, creating traditional dishes from around the world in WOMADelaide's 'home kitchen'. The 2011 program also included educational cooking classes for kids for the first time, thanks to The Little Cookie cooking school.
