April 2016 special edition

Come celebrate premium SA food and wine at Tasting Australia

South Australia's premier food and wine festival, Tasting Australia, will go beyond the dining experience to unearth what South Australia's food scene has to offer.

The week-long culinary festival, presented by Thomas Foods, will focus on South Australia's world class food and wine experiences from every region in the state.

Co-creative directors of the festival and Premium Food and Wine Ambassadors Simon Bryant and Paul Henry have collaborated with Barossa food legend Maggie Beer to craft eight delicious days that showcase SA's premium food and wine.

"We want the state's real food champions to share their story, their knowledge of the land and their product with the public through all different styles of events and experiences," Mr Bryant said.

"The regions are close but they all have their own identity and footprint and all produce a very different product.

"They're proud of what they do and we're just showing you the diversity of South Australia."

The festival will allow food lovers to experience food and wine direct from the source, contrasting the latest technology with rich, cultural heritage in many of the wine regions.

Guests can sample SA's premium wines during Tasting Australia, giving Adelaide, South Australia, a further testament as the newest member of the prestigious Great Wine Capitals network.

One of the festivals' events is The South Australian Tasting Gallery, presented by Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA).

Once guests step inside, they'll be greeted by local producers and Premium Food and Wine Ambassadors who will introduce their palate to a number of sweet and sour, salty or savoury flavours, which are paired with locally produced beers, wines and ciders.

There will be the opportunity to discuss the combinations with the producers as well as offer reflections to the group and take away newfound inspired flavour concepts.

The South Australian Tasting Gallery will be held on the southern side of Town Square, Thursday 5 May, Friday 6 May and Saturday 7 May.

Places are limited to 26 people per session.

Tasting Australia presented by Thomas Foods runs from 1 May to 8 May 2016.
