Flavours of South Australia

Disclaimer: I was gifted Flavours of South Australia and I had attended the book launch. 

I feel a stab of pride at being a South Australian. We have amazing food and coffee with wineries and beaches only a mere 30 mins (depending where you live :P). I think the only way to appreciate how amazing Adelaide is is to keep travelling and I dare you to find a place that is better than Adelaide.

Flavours of South Australia

So what is the point of my love letter to SA? It’s because of the release of Flavours of South Australia – a book about the amazing restaurants, wineries and producers in South Australia. It covers the regions of Adelaide (city and urban), Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Southern Flinders Rangers, Eyre Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, Fleurieu Peninsula and Limestone Coast.

Flavours of South Australia

Each page details the history of the owners and how the place came to be what it is today. It truly demonstrates what a multi-cultured country Australia is because reading through each venues’ stories you see a pattern. These amazing chefs, owners and producers have the same desire to share a piece of their home with us even though everyone came from different cultures. Each place also provided a signature recipe for us to give a spin at home – I’m quite excited to give the Morgh Degee from Parwana and Kutchi a go.

As a side note most of the restaurants here are on the higher end of dining but would be the ideal place to take someone you want to impress.

With beautiful writing and photography, Smudge Publishing has done an amazing job capturing the essence of South Australia. One of the photographers was the lovely Christina Soong from The Hungry Australian and it was great to see an Adelaide talent representing ;)

This would make a great guide for tourists as it takes them to places where locals eat.  It would also look great on your a coffee table and make the perfect gift for your foodie friend. Besides South Australia, they have also created Flavours of Sydney, Flavours of Melbourne and Flavours of Queensland. You can buy Flavours of South Australia here ($80) with $5 from each book being donated to the SA Pinery Fire Appeal.

      Yay :) We do have it good here and it’s nice that Adelaide is quiet without the hustle and bustle. Though it is getting more packed these days :3
