Media coverage

“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: this is the best food party in the country. It's always a joy to be in South Australia, but none more so than during Tasting Australia.”
