As the warmer weather begins to set in, the avid beach-goers and Jetty Road enjoyers are making a return on of Adelaide’s famed beachside locations, Glenelg. And to spice things up a bit along the picturesque coastline, an inaugural seafood festival is going down – Sea to Shore.
On Saturday 29 October from 11am, the Glenelg foreshore will be transformed into a harbourside boat club, which will host a number of producers and chefs, each displaying theatrics of wild cooking alongside showcasing delicious seafood dishes – with a street party to follow come sundown.
Executive Chef Tony Carroll from Fishbank will be on the scene whipping up a special dish using locally sourced Pipis, also know as the Goolwa cockle, right from the southern source. While Ragini Dey, of Ragini Spice will serve Goan fish curry and seafood samosa.
But it ain’t all about creatures of the sea – the team from 2KW will be collaborating with a range of famed South Australian wineries and distilleries, including Barrio, Riot Wine, Little Bang Brewing and Threefold Distilling, where a range of spritzes, G&Ts, and ales are on the cards from the warm and rustic central timber bar.
Deck chairs and cane lounges, all under umbrellas, will be scattered around the foreshore while groovy tunes by DJ Kai Ward and Felicity Auckett complete the atmosphere. It’s relaxing in style without a doubt. And it’s even set to be sunny day with a top of 19 degrees!
As the sun sets over the usually bustling Jetty Road, restaurants and businesses will take over the main drag, filling the road with tables and chairs, scrumptious food and drink, and live music. Here, you’ll be able to feast your eyes and stomach on a range of seafood-inspired dishes including seafood platters, chilli crab pizza, grilled octopus, prawn saganaki, lobsters and seafood pasta, to name a few.
Some of Jetty Road’s well-known businesses that’ll be getting down with Sea To Shore include Fourth, Cardone’s, Beach Burrito, Caruso’s Fresh Foods, St Louis, as well as Pinot and Picasso who will hold a special seafood-inspired art class.
City of Holdfast Bay Mayor, Amanda Wilson says, “South Australia has some of the finest seafood, and it’s a great opportunity to showcase it on the beautiful coastline, for one day.”
Sea To Shore is a great excuse to get down to Glenelg, perhaps for the first time this spring, whilst overlooking the sparkling blue water of Adelaide’s iconic beach.
