One of my favourite Paul Kelly songs and so true. In a competitive society it is easy to overlook the simple ideas that aren’t ‘rocket science’ but challenge the normal culture of how we do things. Sometimes innovation is a simplification of a process or model, even a return to ancient practices with the insight of the experiences learnt along the way. This mindset of questioning, respecting the past and future generations is what makes society survive and communities thrive.
Since 1997, Tasting Australia has become one of Australia’s most anticipated culinary festivals. Owned and managed by the South Australian Tourism Commission, The week-long festival surpasses just eating and drinking to uncover what South Australia’s food-scene is all about: crusading local and seasonal produce; promoting its diverse culture, championing premium producers; indulging in a kaleidoscope of tastes and being treated to unforgettable dining experiences.
In Collaboration with Kalangadoo Organic we are hosting one of only two Tasting Australia events in the Limestone Coast. Our special guest speakers are TV’s River Cottage Australia host Paul West - the poster boy for sustainable farming and organic food.
