A fine dining guide that fits in a glovebox: In Friday's Port News

IN a tight economy, any opportunity to promote a product is appreciated.

Taste Magazine is the brain child of advertising whiz Kathleen Norman.

Three years ago, the Port Macquarie News employee joined forces with the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to compile a collection of top restaurants, cafes, providores and more.

Now an independent annual publication, Mrs Norman remains pleased with its success.

"I wanted to make it personal and have a face behind the business," she said.

"It's a good size, which you can throw in your glove box."

Taste will be loaded to the Port News website for a year and is an insert in Friday's paper.

There is a map in the centre highlighting where each of the hospitality businesses can be found.

"It's something a little bit different," Mrs Norman said.
