8-course dining experience in a sugar gum hut launches for Tasting Australia

Creators of The Enchanted Fig Tree, Gastronomo Dining, is launching a new dining adventure called SENSORIUM. Open for bookings now.

Often, it’s the simple things that create great memories – a meal shared with friends or family in a stunning location where nature plays its magical part.

Nick Hannaford, Owner of South Australia’s wilderness dining outfit Gastronomo Dining is opening his next new dining adventure on Kangaroo Island with Tasting Australia presented by RAA Travel as part of their 2022 Winter Series.

Nick explains his new luncheon experience SENSORIUM, Kangaroo Island. Land, Sea and Earth is simply about celebrating pristine produce in an environment that connects to the senses and the art of eating together while sharing stories…

“Some of the most memorable dining experiences I can remember have come unexpectedly. They have delighted with simplicity, an element of surprise or have exceeded a preconceived expectation,” said Nick.

The eight-course tasting menu evolves in front of you as each course is cooked over the flames, coal or smoke of an open fire pit set inside a historic sugar gum hut lit with flickering candle light.

Don’t think fine dining, and don’t expect your usual restaurant experience because Sensorium has done away with chef hierarchy and waiters and replaced them with passionate hosts.

Each season the Gastronomo crew invite cooks, chefs wine lovers and friends from their network of food and beverage lovers to form the hosting team.

“Underlying great food and wine is the art of fine service and entertaining. A host who knows how to connect or conduct the proceedings with subtle gestures or bold statements often goes unnoticed as they share their home and make you feel cared for, comfortable, and connected…” said Nick.

For the opening dates of Sensorium this July, Nick will be hosting the luncheons with the amazing duo behind the flavours and service of The Enchanted Fig Tree – Stephanie Vass and Benjamin Anthony.

To keep it intimate, seating is limited to small dining groups of 20 guests with only a few dates released each month.
