Matt Moran & Yalumba Farmgate Lunch
Be welcomed to the Barossa by a family passionate about sharing local food and wine.
You’ll spend the afternoon at Yalumba in Angaston, a grand estate with 170 years of winemaking heritage behind it. Return coach transport from the Adelaide city centre or Barossa (for the locals) is included; your only to-do is relaxing at long tables set in the gardens of the Yalumba property. Farm-fresh produce will feature on the lunch menu, with the celebrated Matt Moran to cook beside Tasting Australia creative director Simon Bryant. Along with enjoying the duo’s food, guests are invited to watch them in action during cooking demonstrations throughout the afternoon. Matched Yalumba wines will complete the picture; you’ll also be treated to insights from winemaker Louisa Rose and brand manager Jessica Hill-Smith, while being hosted by Yalumba's Managing Director, Nick Waterman. Hear the latest on the 2020 harvest and be guided by this entertaining pair as they chat wine and its charms. Find further inspiration in the cookbooks available to purchase on site from Phaidon. This international publisher – known for working closely with the world’s most influential chefs — has beautiful titles covering every taste.
A NOTE ON DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Tasting Australia menus are a convergence of South Australian regional produce at the height of its season. Our array of notable overseas, interstate and local chefs deliver sublime dining experiences, with a curated multi-course set menu. With this comes months of planning. Our cast of culinary stars will each create a unique one-off festival dish, or adapt an iconic signature dish to our local produce. Many of the dishes featured will simply not be suitable, or adaptable for particular dietary requirements by our visiting chefs, as some ingredients are embedded in prior pre-preparations weeks out from the event. Tasting Australia can offer an alternative vegetarian and coeliac menu should it be requested at the time of booking. This menu, however, may not be designed or executed by the visiting chefs. If the opportunity to enjoy a meal from one of our festival stars is why you're thinking of joining us, we urge you to explore other events in the programme that may be more tailored to your needs. But if the allure of our incredible Tasting Australia dining experience is what's piqued your interest, talk to us on [email protected] before booking and we will see what can be made possible.
