“Three things go through my mind after Tasting Australia each year.
“One: how did I cram so much good food and drink into such a short space of time?
“Two: how much is property in Adelaide again?
“And three: gosh this is the best food party in the country. It's always a joy to be in South Australia, but never more so than during Tasting Australia.”
– Journalist Max Veenhuyzen
