Tasting our state’s premium food and wine

Tasting Australia starts today and is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the unique food and beverage experiences across our state’s top culinary locations.

The festival offers more than 80 free and ticketed events that will be held across Adelaide and regional South Australia from today until 7 May.

The revamped Town Square hub on Victoria Square includes a new space called Charred which features more than a dozen fire-oriented street food vendors such as Pizzateca, Comida, La Boca, Superfish and Coriole. East End Cellars will be serving South Australia’s finest at the Premium Wine Bar, Beer and Bubbles and Bottle Shop Gin Bar while diners will also enjoy meals inside the new Glasshouse Kitchen.

This year the Town Square has extended its opening hours and will be open from 11am daily and for dinner from 3 – 6 May.

Locally renowned chefs Simon Bryant and Jock Zonfrillo will lead Tasting Australia’s creative direction and Maggie Beer will make her final appearance as festival patron. Visiting chefs include UK culinary icon Marco Pierre White, the World’s Best Female Chef Ana Ros and German winemaker Egon Muller.

Simon Bryant says if you love eating and drinking, sharing food and beverages and meeting the people behind what’s on your plate and in your glass, then Tasting Australia is for you.

“South Australia is a really special place to visit because there are culinary experiences all around us, from the city to less than an hour’s drive away in the Barossa, Adelaide Hills or even further afield,” said Mr Bryant.

“You can go to the farm gate and pick your own olives, visit the cellar door and walk through the vineyards where world-class wine begins its journey, meet the producer who grew the crisp apples in your dessert or chat with a chef about making the perfect sauce.”
