Our Tastings

Tell us what the best thing is about being at a market? The people? The produce? The atmosphere?

We say all of it! It gives the environment you are in a buzz, a vibe, a community enjoying some of the best things in life – to us that is food & community.

At The Cook Grocer we bring a local market feel into our store, giving you the chance to taste the products we are selling in store from local and speciality producers.

Every month we have local producers and suppliers from Canberra and the surrounding regions come in store for our tastings so you can sample their products, a little try before you buy and get sample everything they do.

Over 2017 we have sampled some of the latest and greatest Canberra and surrounding regions producers. These have included Bentspoke, Bombolini Doughnuts, Mashblox, Barbell Biltong, Tumut River Brewing Co, Krofne, Wild Brumby Schnapps, Endeavour Tea, La Empanada, Jono’s Jerky, High Gate Lane Coffee, Three Mills Bakery and The Granary Bespoke Milling to name a few.

Our speciality suppliers deliver amazing produce from around the world, many regions we stock in store and we have been very lucky to have Guillermo from Mate In Spain be a regular at our tastings. Mate in Spain brings some of the finest and speciality produce in from Spain so you can experience and taste authentic Spain.

We regularly have our local wine reps in store to give you a taste of what our favourite vineyards are producing with their latest releases for the season. Our featured vineyards have included Robert Oatley, Spring Range – Canberra District, Contentious Character, Rolling Wines, Giesen Wines, Raw Vine Estate and Tobacco Road.
