The hotel expects more than 350 guests will turn out to experience a decedent menu of British delicacies, with part proceeds of the night going towards preparing and sending Australian Athletes to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
ICA General Manager James Allen said InterContinental Adelaide is looking forward to taking part in a number of Tasting Australia initiatives in 2012 and the opportunity to support Aussie Athletes.
“We (ICA) are proud to be the official hotel of Tasting Australia and more specifically hosting the high calibre ‘Best of British’ event.
“It is going to be a fantastic evening featuring some of the best in the business including UK Chef of the year Mark Hix who will wow guest with his culinary talents. Being able to support our athletes in their preparation for London is a terrific added bonus,” he said.
The line up for the Best of British will also feature:
• Mark Hix – UK restaurateur and multi-award winning chef, and owner of Hix Oyster and Chop House in Smithfield
• Simon Bryant – One half of the ABC television’s The Cook and the Chef
• Matthew Kemp – Owner of gastro-pub Montpelier Public House and formerly of Sydney’s restaurant Balzac
• Jeremy Strode – Owner of Bistrode in Surry Hills and his new establishment Bistrode CBD
Guests can expect a seven-course extravaganza including British favourites such as Steak and Kidney pie, Smokes Highland Chowder, Steamed Sussex pudding, a gourmet selection of English cheeses selected by cheese guru Will Studd, accompanied by pre-dinner KI Spirits Gin cocktails and a fabulous array of South Australian Wine.
InterContinental Adelaide has also brought an official London Cab into Adelaide to capture a genuine ‘Best of British’ experience for guests and also for Tasting Australia dignitaries.
“From the moment guests arrive they’ll feel like they’re in London with the hotel taking on a distinctively British feel as we celebrate Tasting Australia,” James Allen Said.
