From the New York Times Travel Section coming this Sunday, they have this headline:“52 Places to Go in 2018” with attention and highlights also regarding Tasmania and its food options: Long known for its oysters and sparkling wines, Australia’s southernmost state is now garnering attention for its booming culinary scene, too. The rising star chef David Moyle helped lead the way in 2015 by opening the seafood-focused Franklin in a restored 1920s Ford automobile showroom, now one of Australia’s top-rated restaurants. Other newcomers include Dier Makr, a restaurant showcasing local Tasmanian ingredients run by two Melbourne transplants, and the Agrarian Kitchen Eatery & Store, another farm-to-table venture that's given new life to a heritage property connected with Tasmania's darker penal colony days — a 19th-century former mental asylum."

As detailed below in my live/blog, we super enjoyed our one day in visiting here and for soaking up its many great sights and nature examples. BUT, we needed more time there to better sample these food options. Another good reason for heading back to Australia.

On our first visit to Tassie, maybe thirty-five years ago, the food was pretty basic. Very outback Aussie type food. On our last visit a few years ago, it had improved amazingly thanks, we were told, to an influx of chefs from Melbourne. anywhere close to Melbourne has to have good food!

Appreciate this great follow-up and these historic details. Nice background for how this "success" has happened in Tasmania.
