Once the spring racing carnival fashions hit the stores, we know it’s a (scarily) short countdown to the summer holidays and the festive season. At Eat Local SA, we’re here to help, so this issue of Eat Like a Local is all about cunning culinary Christmas ideas to help you eat and play local this party season. And if you’re eating at home, our recipe in this issue showcases the world-renowned produce of Kangaroo Island.
Spring is always inspiring for food-focused folks. But while we are watching for the first bunches of tender asparagus and those brilliant green baby broad beans to appear, August isn’t just a waiting game for the new season in South Australia. Instead, it’s when we go on a state-wide art binge, and Eat Local SA venues are hosting a veritable art feast right now.
Plus we have new Eat Local SA participating venues to introduce to you, news of tours and special offers, and a fantastic recipe from Beerenberg Farm to celebrate the end of winter.
There’s a chill in the air at long last, and it’s time to get cosy with some great South Australian produce at your favourite Eat Local SA venue. From Adelaide city and suburbs, to Coonawarra down south, and north to the Flinders, we’re all set for some fine feasting, plus our feature recipe from Taste the Yorke will get your creative mojo going in the kitchen.
Summer. It ain’t over til it’s over. The kids might be back at school but those warm weekends are still happening. We recommend seeing out the season by venturing to the Yorke Peninsula for some fresh sea air and maybe a brownie, nipping over to Norwood for food + art, heading to the hills for a relaxed meal, or whipping up a super fresh kingfish ceviche with our feature recipe from Dennis Leslie.
Right now, it’s all about what to serve and where to eat these holidays. We can help you with that.
Let us put a spring in your step with news of the latest venues to join us in the Eat Local SA program, introduce our tempting new app, and tickle your competitive streak with the chance to win a delicious dinner for two at Windy Point Restaurant.
Need to add a little fresh air and delicious food to your life? Well buckle up, South Australia’s wilderness coast, fizzlingly fresh seafood and wide open spaces are calling you. Just think of it – fresh sea breezes, open vistas stretching across rolling farmlands to the wide blue sky.
Eat Like a Local is back in the Barossa this month. Why? Because as soon as the nights start to cool and those autumnal tones appear, our thoughts turn to relaxing with friends over a dish or two just bursting with rich, full flavor. Don’t miss the autumn flavours from one of South Australia’s favourite playgrounds.
It’s true that most local produce-loving foodies have a favourite place (or three), where all the pieces come together to create much more than a meal. These places become an experience, where the food, plus the service, plus the unique characteristics of that venue deliver a treat for all the senses.
Or perhaps a delicate morsel to keep you going through the dog days of January (and the last weeks of the school holidays). Naturally, a morsel made with locally produced ingredients is our preferred option and, happily, there are many cafes scattered across the state who agree. So, we say happy new year and thank…
We love the theory that this is the time of year things start to wind down and we can all relax. Here’s an idea. How about a little time out to tempt your taste buds as well as soothe your weary soul? Well, have we got a relaxing, tasty idea for you!
Summer’s here. You can scent it on a warm breeze, see it in the bright hues of the season’s fruit and vegies and, even better, you can taste it too. What better time than this to make a foray out of your usual haunts to the gates of the farms where those delectable goodies grow?
What we really love about eating local across the regions of South Australia is the huge variety on offer. We have just about every imaginable and indulgent ingredient available somewhere across the state, from the fresh-caught seafood of the coast to the hidden fruit bowls of the outback.
Isn’t it nice that South Australia’s caterers love the eat local ethos as much as our restaurant chefs? Because knowing you can buy something scrumptiously beautiful to eat, made from locally sourced produce, means we can feel extra good about supporting local producers, – even if we’re not the one in the apron.
What better way to snuggle up through the last days of winter than to do it by cuddling up to a hearty meal? It’s easy to dine fine on South Australia’s best when you know where to find it. Winter says to us: fresh baked pastries, slow-cooked meats and beautiful seafood straight from the chilly seas.
