Despite mixed messages over border control, things are looking pretty good with regard to South Australia’s borders. South Australia’s police commissioner has even said that the state’s border restrictions with New South Wales are likely to be lifted by the end of January.
We’re also fairly confident there will be no restrictions by the end of April, which is when the South Australian-hosted super-event Tasting Australia is set to launch.
Tasting Australia is a 10-day eating and drinking festival hosted in Adelaide and its surrounding wine regions and breweries, happening annually and presented by RAA Travel.
As part of the festival, Adelaide’s favourite food mecca, Town Square, will be back with plenty of new events and masterclasses – tickets to which are now on sale.
Located at Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga, the new-look Town Square is a great place to meet for a drink, stay for a meal, and fruther explore, offering more experiences than ever before.
Featuring ample seating, six bars, 12 food vendors, cosy firepits and live music, Town Square will run from 30 April – 9 May 2021.
“Every year Tasting Australia turns our state into a culinary hotspot, showcasing the exceptional local producers, winemakers and chefs we have at our fingertips,” said SA Premier Steven Marshall. “We look forward to welcoming Tasting Australia’s Town Square to Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga again this year, which we know will attract more people into the CBD.”
Free to enter, the buzzing festival hub will feature a dedicated artisan area where festivalgoers will be able to watch artists at work.
But the real hero of Town Square is Town Square Kitchen presented by TheFork, an innovative and Instagram-worthy space located in the heart of the festival hub.
On the menu at Town Square Kitchen will be an extensive range of curated events featuring some of the festival’s biggest names. Highlights include Mayura Station Rare Cuts with Analiese Gregory, and a celebration of global cuisine at The World’s Table featuring Tasting Australia Patron Cheong Liew, Paul Carmichael, Mat Lindsay and Louis Tikaram.
Not only will Town Square Kitchen events reflect the festival’s support of local artisans, they will feature locally-sourced utensils throughout the dining experience including crockery and cutlery, whilst the curated menus will highlight local South Australian producers.
