Taste of Auckland is back for its 10th year and it's always the best food festival to discover Kiwi artisan growers and producers with like-minded foodies.

This week (Thursday-Sunday) head down to Queen's Wharf to explore pop-up bars and all sorts of delicious morsels to whet your appetite.

There is something for everyone with Italian, modern Yum Cha, raw foods, Greek, contemporary French, Russian, Southern American food and more.

Just last year you could chow down on super fancy and scrumptious sarladaises (duck fat) fries while enjoying the long spring evening with some epic bands playing. So if that's anything to go by then it's sure to be a good time.

Here's what you need to know:
