The toast of Kyneton’s thriving foodie scene will lay out a massive spread of signature dishes at Sunday’s Taste of Kyneton festival.

This year’s event at Kyneton racecourse will also celebrate central Victoria’s “ethical farm movement”, with rare-breed pork, local olives, nuts and farm-made cordial set to feature.

The festival will also showcase the many and diverse offerings of Piper Street and beyond.

Among first-time exhibitors is Kate’s Kitchen of Kyneton, which opened in mid-2015.

Owner Kate Tripodi will offer scones, gluten-free cupcakes and high tea in a box.

‘‘I think people know Kyneton as a foodie place, but they are often surprised once you sit them down in one place like this and they see how much there is on offer. You can go fine dining or get scones … there’s even some cafes that are like you’ve stumbled into Richmond.

‘‘We’ve got such a diversity that even locals are spoilt for choice. You could never get bored here.’’

Taste of Kyneton is at Kyneton racecourse from 11am until 3pm this Sunday. Local beers and ciders will also be available. Entry is $10, with proceeds supporting Kyneton CFA and RM Begg Aged Care. More details: www.tasteofkyneton.com
