If we all thought that this year’s Royal Croquet Club couldn’t get any better, we were wrong. Very wrong. They have just announced the delicious lineup of food that we can expect when it opens its gates on Feburary 12, and the list has our tummies rumbling and our mouths watering…
The proudly South Australian owned and curated event will open as part of the Adelaide Fringe. Bringing together the performing arts, music, croquet and food (YES), it really is a unique platform – which is why we all love it so much!
South Aussie pride will run through into the food offering this year as they introduce an all-star lineup of some of Adelaide’s fave restaurants.
“It’s important to us that all of our food is served by local business. We have some of the best food in Australia in Adelaide, and we want to show everyone who comes to the RCC what this city has to offer,” says Stuart Duckworth, Royal Croquet Club Brand Director.
The curated food lineup is a festival of flavours and cuisines and looks a little something like this:
Gin Long Canteen (one of our fave, see our review here)
There will be a dish to satisfy anyone’s tastes, as well as child-friendly, vegetarian and gluten free options at every restaurant. Plus returning from London – where he worked as Sous Chef at top restaurant St Johns – Hugh Duckworth brings his culinary skills to the RCC with Pit House, preparing his menu entirely by cooking over coals on site. His menu stars lamb on the cross, featuring smouldered and beautifully seasoned vegetables and more.
And Michael Weldon (2011 Masterchef Runner-Up) will be serving up the All-American classics at Doc’s Diner, with a range of burgers and hotdogs that kids – big and small! – will love. Weldon will also run the kitchen at returning RCC favourite Jamaican Me Crazy, with a Caribbean-style menu including Hot Wings, Lemon Pepper Squid Tacos, Jerk Chicken and the popular Bahama Burger.
With more food vendors to be announced the anticipation is all a bit too much! Bring on Feb 12!
