Taste of Coogee is back with a new name and a stacked new two-day program of culinary pop-ups and demonstrations. Following eight years under its original name, the festival will return to Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter under the banner of Taste in the City, serving up its annual array of tastings and experiences, live music and its always popular long lunch.

Highlights of this year's event include a return of Lobster & Co's lobster rolls following their successful run in Darling Harbour, cocktail masterclasses from the award-winning Maybe Sammy, a Caffeine Caravan from Mr Black and live music from the likes of Hot Potato Band and Top Shelf Live.

Ready Steady Cook's Peter Everett will be back to host the celebrity kitchen demonstrations with guests including Mindy Woods, Jason Roberts, Tom Walton and Rowie Dillon. Plus, the long lunch will also return for 100 guests featuring food curated by Tom Walton and Jason Roberts and a quality selection of NSW wines.

Tickets are $40 for adults which gets you entry to the festival, a tasting cup and access to the cooking demonstrations, while kids under 18 are free.

If you're looking to take your visit to the next level, you can purchase a seat at the long lunch with your ticket which will set you back an extra $110. Rowie Dillon will also be running a Kids in the Kitchen program with tickets for the little ones available for $45.

To top off the fun, the event is dog-friendly so you can spend the day with your four-legged pals or expect to run into some adorable fluffballs as you make your way around the festival.
