Ngarku’adlu (Let’s eat) – Picnic

Food and Wine

13 Mar 2021 to 14 Mar 2021 Once Only Event

Adelaide Festival is proud to present two incredible dining events, a family-friendly picnic and a fine dining event. The events are curated and prepared by this country’s finest First Nations chefs, including Clayton Donovan, Australia’s only Indigenous hatted chef, and Warndu, an Indigenous-owned Australian Native Food business with a mission to inspire curiosity about our native plants, nuts, seeds and proteins and regenerate culture, community, tradition, health and our soils.

If you choose the picnic option, you and your friends and family are all invited. No need to bring food as everything’s laid on. In collaboration with First Nations leaders, you will be welcomed to Kaurna land, given a picnic box packed with treats and will sample the unique flavours and textures that have nourished the Kaurna, Adnyamathanha, Ngarrindjeri, and Narungga nations for more than 65,000 years. You’ll learn about traditional Aboriginal cooking techniques, the places where bush food is sourced, how it is picked, foraged, hunted and cooked today, and how contemporary adaptation of locally sourced native foods can form a bigger part of everyone’s household pantry. Children’s activities, storytelling and explorations of Aboriginal culture will be provided by our friends from the South Australian Museum.

All products on offer are made in Australia from 100% locally sourced, seasonal and wild harvested produce with an emphasis on supporting Aboriginal enterprises.
