If the words ‘Adelaide Central Market’ aren’t enough to get any Adelaidian salivating, then perhaps the words ‘Tasting Australia 2016’ will do the trick?
Conveniently close to Victoria Square, which will host the hub of Tasting Australia 2016 from May 1st – 18th, the market will be getting involved by hosting food events throughout the week. Aiming to show off both Adelaide’s noteworthy fresh produce as well as its impressive multi-cultural cuisine, the market will be holding 12 culinary events, each promising to be as scrumptious and as varied as the last.
Aaron Brumby, the Authority General Manager of the Adelaide Central Market, says that the market’s involvement in the program will be a great way for everyone to experience food on a new level.
“Taking part in Tasting Australia is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the artisan traders and products here at the Market,” says Brumby.
The event promises something for every level of foodie, with both free and ticketed events. Self-guided foot tours will be available on regular market days, giving people the opportunity to follow their tastebuds and immerse themselves in the hustle-and-bustle of the market atmosphere – all at their own pace.
There will also be free cooking demonstrations as part of The Market Melting Pot, giving the public an opportunity to learn and observe from some of Adelaide’s most renowned chefs. Special guest of Tasting Australia, chef and author Rodney Dunn from The Agrarian Kitchen will be gracing food fans with his his passion for flavour and cooking experiences. Other names including Poh Ling Yeow, Callum Hann and Themis Chryssidis will also be sharing their knowledge and individual experise areas in food.
Always a pleasant recipe of culture, food and free tastings, The Adelaide Central Market will offer a neat little bundle of exclusive foodie opportunities throughout Tasting Australia 2016. A culinary delight and chance to delve deeper into the world of food and market living, the event is sure to impress locals and tourists alike – as well as their tastebuds.
