Finally, the seasons seem to be on the turn, as winter backs reluctantly out the door and spring comes bouncing in, shedding her coat and flashing sunny smiles at us all. Pastels are being seen again – both on people’s backs and in their gardens – and there are lots of excuses to get out of my uggies and out of the house! One of the best of these is coming up very soon indeed – the Adelaide Good Food and Wine Show.
Held from 12-14 October at the Adelaide Showgrounds, this indulgent weekend is the perfect excuse to indulge in Adelaide’s passion for flavour with fine food, delectable cheeses, premium produce, and of course, award-winning South Australian wines. The involvement of South Australian businesses is overwhelming with Careme Pastry, Cocolat, Butch’s Smallgoods of the Riverland, Heavenly Delights, 4 leaf milling company, Pangkarra Foods, Vella Pasta, and many more participating in the delectable three day event.
Wine connoisseurs will be greatly satisfied with the heart of Australia’s wine region once again playing a huge part in the event, but it’s not just about the Barossa Valley, with several other local exhibitors including Woodstock Wines, Bleasdale Vineyards, and Majella Wines tingling wine lover’s palates. Several interstate wine companies will also be making their presence felt with Pakura Estate returning for its third year, after participating every year since the show’s 2010 inception.
This year will see the return of master classes and cooking demonstrations featuring favourites Manu Fieldel, George Columbaris, Matt Moran, and South Australia’s very own Maggie Beer. James Laing, Exhibition Director of the Good Food & Wine Show says, “Adelaide is such a passionate state when it comes to food and wine, and it’s great to see so many local food and wine producers coming on board for the show.”
The scrumptious line-up at this year’s show will give visitors the chance to explore, indulge, and sample gourmet food, acclaimed local produce, luscious cheeses, and of course, award-winning South Australian wines – it’s an epicurean’s delight not to be missed.
