The popular KI Food Safari held at Southern Ocean Lodge returns in 2019, running over a long weekend from July 12-15 and celebrating the culinary talent and friendships of three of South Australia’s most lauded chefs. Southern Ocean Lodge Executive Chef Asher Blackford will team up for the event with Duncan Welgemoed of Adelaide’s Africola and Tom Jack, head chef at Mitolo Wines' Bocca di Lupo in McLaren Vale. The trio will each host a degustation dinner or long lunch with ...matched wines from The Islander Estate Vineyards, Mitolo Wines and The Lane Vineyard, with the final night a combined gala dinner presented by the three chefs. Each will lead cooking masterclasses and produce tastings, both ‘in the field’ and in the kitchen or in the Great Room at Southern Ocean Lodge. A day’s expedition to Kangaroo Island’s food producers includes a visit to a local marron farm, lunch at the Islander Estate’s Vineyard, wild gin tastings at Kangaroo Island Spirits and a tour of the ground-breaking Aquaculture Skills Centre at Parndana School, where senior students produce sustainable barramundi and herbs. Back at Southern Ocean Lodge there’ll be a free-range lamb cooking masterclass, shucking and tastings of American River Oysters and a fascinating insight to the island’s Ligurian bees. The KI Food Safari is priced from $4,150 per person twin share including three nights at Southern Ocean Lodge, an itinerary of excursions, produce tastings and masterclasses, all dining and beverages, in-suite bar and island airport transfers.
