#BBTW – Beef, Butter, Truffles and Wine at the Adelaide Central Market

Adelaide Central Market is much more than a meeting place for friends, a place to purchase fresh local produce, and a place to get a bargain on Saturday morning. Adelaide Central Market also offers activities every Friday, always food centred, often focussing on local produce.

This Friday 6th of July at 5pm, four greats of the Australian food and wine community will be at the south-west corner of the Adelaide Central Markets for ‘Beef, Butter, Truffles and Wine’. Until 7:30pm there will be an opportunity to talk with them and taste their produce. Beef, Butter, Truffles and Wine promises to be an excellent display of food and wine… and the best bit? It’s all free!

Cantina – Street Food at the Hotel Tivoli

Shane Berketa ate at the Hotel Tivoli in Adelaide recently and writes about it here:
Dear Adelaide,
It seems you and I have a little bit of a problem. I’ve been living in this town for about three years now and I’m struggling to find a good fish and chip shop anywhere. I was also having trouble finding a place that sells great tasting Mexican food, but I managed to solve that little dilemma when my wife and I stumbled onto the Hotel Tivoli.
Why Adelaide? Why did you keep the Hotel Tivoli’s …

Etica: Adelaide’s Ethical Pizzeria e Mozzarella Bar

The philosophy of thinking about where I put my food dollar extends from my home into the restaurants at which I like to eat. So many wonderful South Australian restaurants are now proudly boasting the free range, organic and sustainable origins of their produce. There are still many that boast grain-fed of course, and sadly, those who do not offer any information at all, let alone train their staff in this field.

After long and considered planning, a new Pizza Bar had finally opened in the Adelaide CBD and I was so thrilled that I made a time for dinner in between my crazy Adelaide Fringe show viewing schedule as soon as I could.

Etica: Ethical Pizzeria e Mozzarella Bar is the brain child of Melissa Merola and Federico Pisanelli…

Restaurant Review: Dinner at The Gov

Shane Berketa writes about his recent meal at The Gov.
Forgive me adelaidetweet readers for I have sinned. It has been at least three years since my last ‘different’ meal at a pub as I have mainly stuck to the ‘holy trinity’ of pub meals: chicken parmigiana, pub burger and pizza.
My reasoning behind this decision was due to a few bad meals (in a row) that I ate three years ago at a few pubs I had visited. In one instance the pub’s curry was watery and had no flavour, in …

Restaurant Review: Grace the Establishment

You know you’re in for a good meal at a restaurant when everything on the menu looks good. That’s the problem I had at the Grace (or more formally Grace the Establishment). What was I supposed to choose? The Jerk Chicken, Pulled Pork Tacos, Coca Cola Pork Spare Ribs or the much talked about, recently awarded (‘Best Plate’ Norwood Food & Wine Festival 2012) Mini Wagyu Cheese Burger.

Each dish sounded more mouth-watering than the next, but alas my lunch time decision was none of the above… continue reading dear viewer to find out the gastronomic conclusion to this menu mystery.

Callum’s The Starter Kitchen is out now!

Launched in Adelaide last week, Callum Hann’s The Starter Kitchen helps the inexperienced cook get started on their cooking journey, the journey of a lifetime.

We asked Callum why he chose to write a book for cooks who are just starting out.

“When I moved out of home four years ago,” he told us, “I was surprised that, considering how many books are out there, nothing really catered to my specific need.”

“There is often a lot of assumed knowledge, which can be quite daunting for people new to cooking. I have written the book to include all my tips and tricks on starting in your own kitchen,” he said…
