1918 Bistro & Grill, the restaurant that revolutionised the gourmet food culture in the Barossa Valley, is working with the Tanunda Lutheran School to grow fresh season produce.
Owners Tanya and Sid King said they came up with the idea to engage the local school kids when they were looking for produce to complete their 50km menu. The aim of the menu is to source all the produce from within 50km of the restaurant.
“With such a small distance to work with, we decided to engage the local school kids who grow us a range of produce, they harvest and deliver every Friday and the produce is used that night on our ‘Taste of Barossa’ Menu” Tanya said. “The idea of 1918’s ‘Taste of Barossa’ menu was to create a uniquely Barossan experience; truly local produce that is skilfully prepared by 1918’s dedicated team of chef’s then matched with local, family owned and produced wine.”
The grade 6 & 7 class at the Tanunda Lutheran School are currently growing leeks, Cavalo Nero, carrots, rocket and a variety of herbs for use at 1918 Bistro & Grill.
All the more reason to support by booking into 1918 Bistro & Grill to sample the 3 course ‘Taste of the Barossa’ menu with matching wines. The tasting menu is available lunch and dinner at $99 per person.
