30 Apr 2022 Once Only Event
Pink fizz fan? You’ve come to the right festival. Tasting Australia is set to celebrate this most romantic of beverages over a lavish brunch.
Gather in Town Square Kitchen for a set four-course menu prepared by Tom Campbell (Adelaide Hills favourite The Summertown Aristologist), Sharon Flynn (Daylesford’s The Fermentary) and Tom Tilbury of Fleurieu Peninsula favourite Gather at Coriole.
Bubbles will be paired with each course; look for top picks from South Australia and beyond. Festival drinks curator Nick Stock loves pink fizz for its food-friendly nature and sense of fun. This form of bubbles is a relatively recent phenomenon – having burst forth in the exuberant 80s – and continues to win new fans.
Cooking on the open flame is a passion for Campbell. He worked at Africola and IGNI before heading overseas to be immersed in vibrant food cultures and traditions. On return to Adelaide Campbell settled at the Summertown Aristologist, renowned for its focus on sustainability, traceability, organic and seasonal produce.
Fermentation rules Flynn’s world. Her journey began with an exploration of sourdough and today encompasses a thriving business – The Fermentary – specialising in everything from kraut to kefir.
McLaren Vale has long been home to Tilbury, who trained at d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant before stints in Margaret River and Robe. His menus are shaped by locally farmed and foraged produce.
