My favourite foodie experiences in South Australia: Adelaide and Adelaide Hills

Sometimes jobs come along that are simply dream commissions.

Late last year I was approached by the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) to be part of their Through Local Eye’s project.

The previous Through Local Eyes projects had seen local filmmakers document some of their favourite experiences in South Australia – see Kids, Crabs and the Best Day Ever by Randy Larcombe and You Gotta Try… Barossa by Urtext Films, which I appear in.

Now SATC wanted to commission photo journalism (words and photos) pieces for the new SouthAustralia.com.

So I pitched them an idea: I would research, write about and photograph some of my favourite foodie experiences in four SA regions: Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, the Barossa and McLaren Vale. My stories would cover the places that I would take a very sophisticated and well-travelled food-loving friend visiting Adelaide.

SATC liked my pitch and I spent a few wonderful weeks earlier this year travelling around South Australia. I visited old favourites as well as new places I’d been meaning to check out. Some experiences made the final cut, while some didn’t: I only included ones that I thought were truly special.

The first two of my pieces are now up on the SouthAustralia.com website: so head over to SouthAustralia.com and discover my favourite foodie experiences in Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills.

My foodie’s guide to the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale are coming soon – stay tuned.

    After watching those pics, I am feeling hungry right now! Adelaide seems fun. There is a lot left to visit in the city. Will catch next trip next week. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Having just read your wonderful post via SA Tourism on Twitter, I tracked down your blog and just wanted to say how wonderful it is! Beautiful photos and lovely writing :) And having just moved from Adelaide to Brisbane it made me yearn to be back there – such a beautiful place and certainly the centre of the food and wine scene in Australia (well I think anyway!)

      Thanks for your sweet comment, Lucy! I really enjoyed researching those pieces for SA Tourism – it was a lovely way to fall in love with my state all over again.
