Everyone’s sad that the busiest time of year has ended. We had the Adelaide Fringe, street eating on Rundle St, WOMADelaide…I mean the list goes on! But do not fear because this time next week a foodie extravaganza will be hitting Adelaide like a storm.

Tasting Australia, one of the country’s longest running food and wine festivals is back! You are in for ten jam-packed days of indulging in the finest foods and beverages that our good old foodie state has to offer.

Beginning on the 5th of April, the festival will bring you the very best on the menu with produce from the natural grounds of the countryside coming straight onto your plate!

Making its way all over the state, this foodie paradise has everything you can imagine. Think long lunches, masterclasses, tastings, drinking, farm tours and of course lots and lots of delicious food. I don’t know about you but I’m salivating already!

Here are a few of the many events that will get those taste buds tingling:

Town Square

When: 5th – 14th April

Where: Victoria Square, Adelaide

Set in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the CBD, Town Square offers everyone the opportunity to become their very own food connoisseur. The FREE hub is the perfect place to settle down, sit back, listen to some tunes and just enjoy some good quality food and drinks to kick on the night with some mates. So, whether it’s for a fat feed, a snack, a share table or anything else in between, make sure you head on down!

Four of the top chefs in Australia will prepare you some delicious dishes and get this…they don’t even know what they will be cooking! They will head out that morning and find the very best produce to cook up a storm. I can tell you now, I wouldn’t mind breaking the bank for this beauty!
