Nova Energy Taste the World

During the festival, cooking sessions are spread across the weekend. Artists swap instruments and microphones for cooking utensils and unusual ingredients. This is an informal and lively environment, and a great way to get up close to the artists!

A dedicated marquee hosted by Jax Hamilton of Masterchef NZ fame houses the Nova Energy Taste the World programme in the Kunming Garden.
