Fashion inspired food at Variety on King William event this Friday

Variety on King William, the hottest fashion ticket in town, has released its anticipated four- course menu which has been designed exclusively and collaboratively by King William Road, Hyde Park’s favourite restaurants.

The chefs from Jones the Grocer, Parisi’s, The Pot, Mulot’s Patisserie and By Blackbird are coming out from their kitchens and onto the road, presenting a menu inspired by fashion!

John Karran, Chairman of the King William Road Traders Association said that they have worked on this menu over the past four months, making sure the flavours and dishes complement each other to create a taste sensation for the fashion conscious crowd.

“I think in today’s challenging retail climate, traders need to think outside the square and this event certainly does that – it really is a credit to the chefs and restaurant owners who have come together to showcase the best of the road.

“We want our guests to feel special and as such have closed the road so that more than 500 people can sit on round tables of 8, with umbrellas and all the trimmings… yes, actually on the road!

“They will enjoy a fine dining, alfresco luncheon with a fashion show on one of the longest runways ever seen before in Adelaide – we don’t believe anything of this nature has ever been done before on such a popular shopping strip,” he said.

To complement the food, every course has been matched with beautiful Tomich Hill wines from the Adelaide Hills.

“We are lucky to have Tomich Wines’ cellar door right here on King William Road and the Tomich family have been more than generous, sponsoring all the wine for this event,” said Mr Karran.

Tickets are $130pp or $1040 for a table of 8 and can bought online through VenueTix or from select outlets on the road: Liza Emanuele, Parisi’s, Moveover Menswear, Karrans of Hyde Park and Boo Radley. Net proceeds from Variety on King William will go to Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Events like this couldn’t happen without the princely support of some very generous Adelaide businesses. Principal partners include; Tomich Wines, Australian Spring Lamb, Australian Motors – Mazda and Budget Party Hire. Other partners include Atmosphere Events, San Pellegrino and City of Unley just to name a few. Please see Page 3 for a full list of our very generous partners.
