L PL ATES Saturday 29 April | $79 The best way to learn a new skill in the kitchen is to do it yourself.

FINO Italian Feast with

TH E MAN. TH E C H EF. TH E I CON. The Godfather of modern cooking makes his Adelaide debut; in 2017, Tasting Australia is proud to present Marco Pierre White as our very special guest.

A ‘chef’s chef’, Pierre White was the youngest person ever to receive three prestigious Michelin stars at the age of 33. His protégés include Heston Blumenthal and Gordon Ramsay, though his legacy is immeasurable. After leaving school Pierre White moved to London at age 16 with little more than £7, a box of books and a bag of clothes. Marco’s determination led to his classical culinary

training as a commis under Albert and Michael Roux at Le Gavroche. In 1987 Pierre White opened Harvey’s in Wandsworth Common, London, where he won his first Michelin star, the second following in just the next year. Seven years later at The Restaurant Marco Pierre White in Knightsbridge the esteemed chef won his third star, thanks in part to the assistance of

a young Jock Zonfrillo (Restaurant Orana & Tasting Australia Creative Curator). Pierre White will be back in the kitchen at Tasting Australia with his protégé for the first time since their stint together at the Knightsbridge hotel. “It’s always nice to see how some of the boys have developed their careers successfully and it’s a credit to their hard work and application,” Pierre White said. “Jock is one of them and he is doing great things in Adelaide and I am looking forward to stepping back into the kitchen with him again.” Pierre White’s regular television appearances as a judge and mentor have provided modern day chefs, cooks and food lovers with valuable insight to the workings of a world-class chef. Feared. Revered. Focused. At the heart of it all is a man who began his commitment to food as a teenager, and today – as a restauranteur and culinary identity – is still driven by good food and simple flavours.

JOIN US I will never tire of talking about South Australia’s incredible produce, or our local food heroes who are the champions of our regions 365 days a year. They are the legends who make Adelaide the place to visit for awesome food and beverages. But the city is just the start – get out to our regions; visit a farm and meet the producer, enjoy a wine masterclass or personalised tasting with the winemaker, harvest olives, make sausages or discover a regional gem. This year Tasting Australia is making your epicurean journey so easy. We’re guiding you through the State by clustering events; start with us in the Barossa, cruise north to

the Flinders Ranges and Outback, head back to the coast for the freshness of the Yorke and Fleurieu Peninsulas before unwinding in the Adelaide Hills or lazing back on the Murray. But you will be able to taste all of the regions in Town Square – both on the menu and in your glass. We’re inviting you to get your mates together, experience something new, discuss the flavours and origins of our food and beverages and immerse yourself in our awesome food culture. Simon Bryant, Creative Director

Tasting Australia is so important to me. It’s about the public coming to listen to the great conversations, to take part in tasting all the amazing food and wine from the regions and supporting our growers, producers and restaurants. Food is what makes me feel good – it’s the essence of life. Maggie Beer, Patron

It’s a super interesting time here in Adelaide with new cafes, restaurants and small bars. With world-class winemakers, brewers and distilleries all within 20 minutes of the CBD it’s fair to say we have plenty to discover.

I urge everyone with a taste for culinary excellence to embrace Tasting Australia 2017 – a week-long celebration of South Australian premium food and beverages.

membership of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.

This year promises to be the best in the two-decade history of the festival.

And Tasting Australia, more broadly, adds to South Australia’s status – according to Lonely Planet – as one of the top five regions in the world to visit in 2017.

The program includes more than 100 events, a strong emphasis on the State’s regional areas and a number of new venues.

The State Government is proud to support Tasting Australia, and we hope you will come along, pull up a seat and join us at our table.

Its focus on wine complements and advertises Adelaide’s recently gained

Jay Weatherill MP, Premier

This energy comes in waves and for Adelaide the crest of the wave is almost here. Anyone visiting Adelaide can feel it, they can taste it and they can drink it. It’s great to be cooking with a lot of my peers and people I really admire at Tasting Australia. They are interesting and talented chefs and it’s not often that we get to cook together. Chef Quiz, hosted by the amazing guys at Fool Magazine, is one of my picks of the festival; that will be a real spectacle. It’s a rare opportunity to see chefs as you would not normally see them – completely unfiltered and with nowhere to hide from the questions. The collaboration dinners will be once in a lifetime – three great chefs collaborating and cooking for you in the Glasshouse Kitchen in Town Square. And of course, to have Marco Pierre White in Adelaide for the first time is pretty cool. He has done so much for the industry over the years. It’s going to be fantastic to show him around South Australia while the State is buzzing thanks to Tasting Australia. Jock Zonfrillo, Creative Curator

If it’s a Saturday, start with the local Farmers Market and sample the bounty of local producers, or tread the same path as the pioneers who settled the region with the Butcher, Baker, Winemaker trail. Sample olive oil, local cheeses, dried fruit and smoked meats and wash it down with a glass of spicy red wine. Stop by Hentley Farm for an in-depth wine tasting (or stay a little longer for the restaurant degustation), and end your weekend in foodie paradise with Tasting Australia Ambassador Sharon Romeo at FINO at Seppeltsfield.

Big in personality and slight in stature, Sharon Romeo’s reputation for exceptional service precedes her. Winner of the 2016 Savour magazine and 2016 South Australian Restaurant and Catering Awards title for top maître d’, Sharon has created a new standard for restaurant management and regional hospitality. Together with head chef David Swain, Sharon was one of the driving forces behind the iconic regional restaurant FINO at Willunga, a shining star of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Then in 2014 Sharon and David decided to embrace a tree-change, taking FINO from south to north and settling at the redeveloped Seppeltsfield, an historical hallmark of the Barossa. Sharon has a background in psychology and sociology – perhaps it is this insight that helps her to connect with FINO’s clientele. Her rich Italian heritage also creates a legacy that has inspired her commitment to the place that food has in culture and a love of convivial meals shared in great company.

A n a l i ese G reg o ry, Ba r B rose (Sy d n e y) Having worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens around the world for almost two decades, you’d never guess that Analiese Gregory was put off from a career in food quite early on thanks to a prestigious award received by her father, Mark Gregory – the first New Zealander to receive the Meilleur Ouvrier de France. Her family history soon took over, however, and she began to build a CV with experience from the likes of The Ledbury in London, Le Meurice in Paris, Quay in Sydney and Bras in the Aubrac, France. After a stint with Mitch Orr at ACME, she founded Bar Brosé in Darlinghurst, an homage to Michel Bras, where she showcases “loosely French food with influences from Chinese, Spanish and Moroccan cuisines”.

Tasti ng Austr alia A m bassa d o r: Ta r as O c h ota Winemaker is just one of the titles bestowed upon Taras Ochota. Surfer. Punk. Basket Range resident and advocate. Wine & Spirits Magazine Top 100 alumna. All are but snippets of a man whose passion and enigma have created one of the country’s leading wine brands and earned him the mantle as key influencer of the region, industry and beyond. Taras’s approach to winemaking uses minimal intervention, focusing on organic farming, early picking and natural acidity to showcase the strength of the produce and a progressive skillset in a somewhat traditional field. His connection with wine started early with his family, Ukrainian immigrants, settling in the Clare Valley. Via a dalliance with an Adelaide-based punk bank, Kranktus, (performing at many festivals like Big Day Out) and a stint in Sweden as “flying winemaker crafting wines throughout Europe”, Taras soon invested in his own brand of winemaking. Ochota Barrels’ honour roll is as long and esteemed as the list of Taras’s rock’n’roll mates (not that he ever brags). Yet it’s the love of good wine that drives Taras to produce one barrel after another, and the experience of sharing a swig or seven straight out of those barrels that brings him joy.
