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.
We love cafes, don’t we? Wherever they are, there’s an enticing aroma of treats in store, perhaps a signature coffee or cake, and always the lure of a little time out. For us, the cherry on top of a café date is when the signature dishes showcase the local producers, and that’s exactly what these cafes are doing.
With great local brews and wines to warm the cockles of our hearts and fine regional foods to match, South Australia’s many fine cellar doors are a rich hunting ground. Not only will we find our long-established regional favourites there, but we might also find the next iconic South Australian product too.
The breeze is brisk, the kitchen calls. It’s time to do a little retail therapy, foodie style. Happily, this is something South Australia does especially well. Even better, some of our gourmet retailers are to be found nestled in the prettiest parts of the state.
There’s something so relaxing about eating at the pub, isn’t there? Great food, a nice drop, no fuss. It’s a recipe for good times. Given South Australia’s brewing and distilling industries got cracking when the first British settlement here was barely more than a toddler, it’s no surprise our state has lots to offer.
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.
A river life is a good life – just ask anyone who spends their time soaking up the serenity lounging on a houseboat deck, or tucking into a plate graced with river-fed produce while watching the local wildlife do … whatever it is local wildlife likes to do.
