Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: The Big Lunch at Adelaide Central Market.
Adelaide chefs are looking beyond the ordinary to create dishes for The Big Lunch, an annual fundraiser for The Big Issue served at long tables in the Adelaide Central Market, being held this year on Sunday 26 July. Simon Bryant is doing a soup of cheddar, wakame and parsnip, and a vegan mulligatawny. He has also enlisted the Artisan Cheesemaking Academy at Regency TAFE to donate three cheeses for a course - triple-cream brie made specially for the lunch, a year-old peppercorn-laced pepato and an 18-month Stilton, the "Paris Stilton" (pictured). Other participating chefs are Masterchef Australia alumnus Callum Hann, who's doing the canapés, Hilton Adelaide's Lloyd Cremer, cooking the main courses, and My Kitchen Rules winner Bree May on desserts. Tickets are available from The Big Issue website for $120 per person.
