Culinary trends in Australia can just as easily be used to describe the passionate Aussies who are leading the charge. Unpretentious, authentic, and pared-back – these are just a few of the words that describe the passionate food Aussies leading the charge. Take a look at how Australia is predicting future trends by looking back in time.
Foraging your Own Dinner
The increase of culinary tourism offers visitors a great taste and experience of a place, with everything from urban foraging to oyster shucking.
It tells a destination’s story by putting local product in the hands of visitors, who may learn about its origins in a unique and personal way.
Distilling is not a new practice in Australia, but a recent upsurge in trendy distilleries popping up in urban locations is shaking up the business. On a tour, tasting, or masterclass, you may now sample top-shelf gins, vodkas, whiskies, and rums without ever leaving the city limits.
The founding of Archie Rose Distillery in Sydney kicked off the trend, which was quickly followed by a smattering of other distilleries putting their unique take on spirits. Poor Toms Gin Hall is the ultimate experimental hipster hangout, and if you prefer rum to gin, there are plenty of options in Sydney.
A Shift to Sustainability
A wave of new sustainable restaurants are designing their menus to make the most of their seafood, meat, and produce as part of a push toward zero-waste. What is the best part? They are doing it in a no-fuss genuine Australian style that highlights the food at its best: fresh, uncomplicated, and unpretentious.
The Sunshine Coast in Queensland has recently been thrown into the gourmet spotlight, with a slew of new eateries and craft brewers springing up, many of which were featured at The Curated Plate, the region’s first food festival. Brouhaha Brewery, which is located in the rich food hub of the hinterland, is committed to using sustainable processes.
Uniquely Australian Alcohol
Producers in Australia are creating alcohol that tastes like the Australian landscape, thanks to regions rich in flavourful native ingredients.
Sleeping between the Vines
While Australia’s wine districts are blessed with exquisite hotels and bed & breakfasts where you may stay in ultimate luxury for a few nights, the latest trend in accommodation is luxurious glamping tents nestled among the vines. The wine area of Orange is located just under four hours west of Sydney and offers cool-climate wines, fresh food, and clear mountain air.
Make sure you choose the best place and there is no doubt that you will have the best time in Aussie. Call your pals or family and have good times together.
