Rymill Coonawarra @ Tasting Australia 2012 Celebrity Chef Event



As part of 2012 Tasting Australia (26 April to 3 May) Rymill Coonawarra will be teaming up with Stephanie Alexander to create The Rymill Coonawarra Harvest Lunch on Saturday 28 April.

This long lunch will be held on the winery's lawns and guests will enjoy a menu specially created by Stephanie to reflect her thoughts on the region's finest local fare. Rymill Coonawarra senior winemaker Sandrine Gimon will expertly match the menu with Rymill Coonawarra's fine wines, including the feature wine 2010 mc².

Rymill Coonawarra is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Stephanie Alexander during the Tasting Australia festival. During the lunch Stephanie will speak about her Kitchen Garden Scheme and her passion for local produce and inspiring food.

A true food aficionado, Stephanie has been running successful restaurants and cooking programs since her first restaurant, Jamaican House, opened in 1964.

Her work includes the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing food education and introducing kitchen gardens into primary schools.

Rymill Coonawarra and Stephanie will be partnering with Pipers of Penola, four time winner of Best Regional Restaurant in South Australia, whose talented chef Simon Bowen will work with Stephanie to create delicious dishes for the guests to enjoy.

Since its inception in 1997 Tasting Australia has become a huge international success, providing entertainment, information and education. The biennial festival is the perfect opportunity for the public – alongside leading food and drink professionals, and the world's food, drink and travel media – to enjoy the best that the nation and particularly South Australia have to offer in terms of produce, food products, wine, hospitality and tourism.

South Australia and Rymill Coonawarra hope you will join them in the celebrations … Bon Appétit!
