‘Tis the season to be feasting, and if we’re feasting, let’s feast local! This issue of Eat Like a Local is here to tell you where you’ll find South Australia on a plate these holidays. And if you are feasting at home, we’ve got more good news. Happy ‘feastive’ season to one and all from Eat Local SA.
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.
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.
Welcome to Mad March in beautiful, festival-fevered Adelaide. Yes, it’s crazy busy and yes, it’s easier to book a cab than pray for a carpark, but oh, what a city this is when she has her festival frock on. Hunker down with that espresso martini, people, we’ve got some serious eating to do.
Trying to capture eating local in Adelaide in a few paragraphs is like trying to pick up the raw egg that hit the floor during one of your more cheffy moments. It’s a slippery little sucker. Our plate-licking adventures take us to some of Adelaide’s most interesting foodie haunts. Enjoy!
