From the Tassivore Eat Local Challenge:

If you live in southern Tasmania, or are just passing through, and love eating fantastic local food and zipping around on your treadlie (bicycle) then this is the trail for you!

Eight of our best eateries and Hobart’s fabulous Farm Gate Market will be showcasing at least one Tassievore dish (see definition below) for four months from the first of January until the end of April 2013. […]

How does it work? The venues listed on the map are all passionate about Tasmanian produce and have committed to supplying at least one Tassievore dish for the duration of the trail. How you follow the trail is up to you. You can aim for a big day and ride the length of the trail to MONA and back (a 50km commitment) and drop in at the venues that suit your need to rest and eat, or you can pick and choose, and take your time to visit a range of the fabulous establishments involved. Equally you can take pot luck with what Tasmanian delights await you or phone ahead to work out what type of dishes there are to suit your mood.

What is a Tassievore dish? A Tassievore dish is totally Tasmanian (exceptions for minor ingredients such as spices and raising agents) and will be identified by the Tassievore logo or enquiry with staff at the venue. Updates about dishes on offer will be posted on the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge facebook page and Tassievore twitter feed.

Riding notes: If you are an inexperienced rider, or don’t have many gears on your bike, stick to the restaurants around the waterfront and along the bike path to MONA. If you have a bit more experience, and more gears, then the whole trail is up for grabs. […]
