Two Port Lincoln businesses will play a part in a new festival which celebrates South Australia's food and beverage culture.
The inaugural Adelaide Food Fringe will take place between May 7-16, with more than 100 events lined up across South Australia including dinners, wine and beer tastings, food trails and cultural celebrations.
The festival, which was originally planned for 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19, is 100 per cent open-access and celebrates the state's food and beverage culture, which includes businesses and communities.
Peter Teakle Wines has two events lined up, starting with 'Tour and Taste' on May 8 where people will be given a tour of the winery followed by a guided wine tasting and platter of choice at the new cellar door.
This is followed by 'Trust the Chef' on May 13, with a degustation dinner created by head chef Jonothan Sweet featuring local produce.
The Port Lincoln Hotel is also taking part as part of 'International Pub Week', which will include 'Wednesday Curry and Quiz Night' on May 12 with curry being served as well as the Quiz Meister pub quiz.
Hotel marketing manager Karena Cowley said the hotel was happy to be a part of the new festival and it was always making sure to highlight local produce.
"With our new head chef we're designing new dishes that will incorporate different ranges of EP produce," she said.
The festival has a big focus on events across Regional SA, including in the Mid North, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Victor Harbor.
Adelaide Food Fringe director Vic Pisani said he was ecstatic by the level of interest in the festival considering last year the event was derailed by COVID-19.
"I'm honestly blown away by the response to our return from the food and beverage industry," he said.
"It's no secret festivals and the hospitality industry did it tough last year, so we see our exciting return as more evidence of green shoots for both our industries rising out of dark times."
