Taste About Us

About us

Taste Cultural Food Tours Inc. is a social enterprise charity established to create a culturally connected Australia, and all our profits are used to provide training and employment opportunities for migrants and refugees, supporting them into the career path of their choosing.

Our unique food tours are lead by local guides, aiming to build  cross-cultural understanding, and we support locally owned businesses. 

Taste Cultural Food Tours must be the best cross cultural experience you can have without leaving Sydney!.  Our unique delicious food tours are offered in some of Sydney's most vibrant multicultural town centres. Each mouth-watering food adventure is fully guided and an opportunity to engage with like-minded food enthusiasts.

Savour authentic fare and taste your way through a variety of Sydney suburbs, where our resident guides will introduce you to local specialties while discovering new cultures.  Talented local people share mouthwatering treats, local history and their cultural stories.    All our tours are small intimate groups, and you will experience the best places to eat and shop, those hidden gems!  All food is included and you will not leave hungry.

We can also offer private group mini tours for the budget and time conscious! Email us or call us to discuss on 0417 206 323.

Our beginnings...

TASTE began in 2010, and was launched with the support of The Benevolent Society, Australia's first and oldest charity.

In 2015 Taste Tours started up as an independently-run, not-for-profit operator known as Taste Cultural Food Tours Inc, founded by Lesley Unsworth our current CEO. 

On transition in 2015 Chairperson, Cathy Quinn, said, "The Benevolent Society has a proven track record in seeding innovation projects. Taste is no exception,  the project was co-designed with community to build cross-cultural understanding and social cohesion. 

“Taste evolving into a member based association, run by the community members who co-created the concept, is the natural next step. We are excited by this next phase for the business, ensuring the social elements of the enterprise continue to deliver outcomes in all of the communities Taste operates."
