FOUR THINGS WE’VE GOT TICKETS TO DURING BAROSSA GOURMET WEEKEND

FOUR THINGS WE’VE GOT TICKETS TO DURING BAROSSA GOURMET WEEKEND
Wednesday,08 May 2019

1. Bistro Blackwood At Yalumba

Before it was common practice to list the variety of wine on the label of a bottle, Yalumba was producing The Signature claret. The cab sav shiraz blend has grown to become one of Australia’s iconic wines, and though it’s not released every year – only in vintages when the fruit is of the absolute highest quality – it has been on shelves for more than half a century.

Earlier this year, Yalumba held a gala dinner to celebrate the 2014 vintage, and the behind the scenes team at Australia’s oldest family-owned winery was determined to find the right chef for the event. “Jock was a natural fit,” says Wine Room & Event Manager Sally Johnson of their choice. “He has an incredible attention to detail, an unwavering dedication to sustainability and the community and he’s a natural innovator, all values shared by Yalumba.”

She’s talking, of course, about Jock Zonfrillo, a renowned lover of native ingredients and fire, and the man behind Orana and Bistro Blackwood. When he found himself surrounded by barrels and flames in the on-site cooperage, he knew that he had to come back and find a way to fully utilise the venue.

When he returns to Yalumba for the upcoming Barossa Gourmet Weekend, he’ll have Head Cooper Shaun ‘Gibbo’ Gibson alongside him and he’ll be preparing a meal that includes a dish cooked in a barrel with steam and fire as well as plenty of open flames. Before that, he’ll also share some of his tips and techniques at a cooking demonstration.

“It’s not a “normal” demonstration,” Sally says. “Jock is a natural sharer of information and loves for people to be involved… He likes people to really feel immersed in what he’s doing. So I think our lucky guests will have a unique opportunity to get up close and learn a bit more about the produce he uses and how they can use it in their everyday cooking.”
