Top tips for Tasting Australia
Tasting Australia is halfway over, but fear not! There’s still plenty more on for the rest of this week, before the festival finishes up and leaves the city with just that comforting (and lingering) wood fire oven aroma to remember it by.
Tasting Australia runs until Sunday, 7 May. See the website for tickets and further information.
You may have missed out on tickets to the powerhouse dinners hosted by Victor Liong, Cheong Liew and Nic Watt and Tim Montgomery, Wayne Brown, Lachlan Colwill and Paul Baker, and you would had to have been quick to grab tickets to the Sew and Sew Wines and Comida collaboration dinner, Sew Tasty, in the Market Tower. It would also be a great shame if you didn’t already get a ticket to the Fresh Wine Disco happening at the Uraidla Show Hall.
With all of that said, good friends of ours raved about the upcoming Heroines Soul to Glass and Heroines Table events, both of which still have tickets available, then there’s the teaming up of Applewood Distillery with Coriole Olives for the Filthiest Martini you might ever try, The Henry Austin is hosting a picnic, and there are still at least a couple of chances to see Cheong Liew in action.
There are also a tonne of masterclasses run by the fine folk at East End Cellars, Charred will be open everyday (until late) until the festival ends, and there is of course the Urban Pantry in Rundle Mall if you’re passing through and need a local produce fix.
There’s plenty on. Come along. Bring your appetite.
