It was a thrill to read the announcement of the Hot 50 restaurants in Australia and the massive contribution made by SA to the food industry and also the inclusion of many of our guest restaurants in the awards. We were proud that so many of those restaurants are in the Outdoors on Parade cooking school line up. Huge congratulations to Lachie Colwill from Hentley Farm, who presented a fabulous cooking class last night! Also the talented Jordan Theodoros from Peel Street, Duncan Welgemoed of Africola and Andy Davies at Osteria Oggi.

Another article in the same magazine on "Culture Club", featured pickling (a great lesson on the subject was given by the entertaining Karena Armstrong from the Salopian Inn, last week at our cooking class. Also Paul Baker, chef of the year from the Botanic Gardens restaurant explained the art of sourdough making at another cooking class - and gave us all some to take home, feed and name!

Here are some images from last nights amazing class from Lachie Colwill of Hentley Farm
