Twelve Glynde food and wine businesses were recently showcased at a special event celebrating food, wine and design, held in partnership with the JamFactory.
Staged on Thursday 23 April at the JamFactory in Morphett Street, the event was attended by 100 JamFactory members and artists, who enjoyed food manufactured by Glynde businesses served on the JamFactory’s hand-crafted product collection.
City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters Mayor Robert Bria said he was thrilled by the night’s success, which built on the Food Secrets of Glynde initiative launched by the Council last August.
“Behind its light industrial façade, Glynde is home to some of our State’s true food secrets – long standing, family owned eateries, businesses and premium food manufacturers, producing wine, cheese, coffee, gelati, confectionary, pasta, pastries and more,” Mayor Bria said.
“Recognising the potential to further develop and promote this cluster of businesses, the Council last year developed its Food Secrets of Glynde publication, which collects their stories, contact details and recipes in a free booklet.”
“When the JamFactory approached the Council about collaborating on an event, we saw a fantastic opportunity to build on the success of this initiative through aligning the Glynde Precinct with an iconic South Australian brand.”
Participating businesses on the night included Amadio Wines, 1645 Coffee Roasters, Pasta Deli, Bread Garden Bakery, AR Premium Foods, La Casa Del Formaggio, L’Abruzzese, Moo Premium Foods, Nuts about Food, Robern Menz, Avanti Pasticceria and Komplete Food Service.
Famed South Australian Chef and Food Secrets of Glynde Ambassador, Cheong Liew also provided a cooking demonstration, using ingredients produced in Glynde to create cheese, mushroom and chicken pan fried dumplings.
Pasquale Clemente from 1645 Coffee Roasters said they were already seeing a positive return from their participation in the event.
“We have had an overwhelming response in the past week, with new customers contacting us as a direct result of our attendance at this event,” Mr Clemente said.
“It was fantastic to be able to promote our products to a new audience and we look forward to continuing to work with the Council to promote the Glynde Precinct and its food and wine businesses.”
