“We are so fortunate in South Australia to be able to serve a wide range of fresh, quality produce. But with seasonality, creating a menu that is made with 100% locally sourced ingredients definitely takes more work. There is a lot more planning involved in terms of considering alternative products or connecting with new producers, however the extra work is something the whole Adelaide Oval team is passionate about doing. We are extremely proud to now offer functions and events clients the option to serve their guests with food that is sourced entirely from within the state”
– Executive Chef Philip Pope
Thank you to our wonderful South Australian suppliers who go above and beyond to deliver the best produce in the world.
Paringa Farm Lamb
Primarily a Suffolk cross bred lamb, sourced from the rich fertile pastures of the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula, then provided a premium grain diet at Paringa Farm, South Australia.
Clare Valley Beef
Clare Valley Gold meat is extremely tender and has a wonderful rich taste. The cattle are grain fed for 100 days and graded under the Meat Standards Australia gracing system to ensure the brand delivers on its eating quality promise. Because the cattle are grain fed (GMO free) during the fattening period, the meat has a very delicate taste. High levels of marbling produce a unique combination of flavour and tenderness. The meat is extremely soft and succulent, which definitely benefits the taste. The cattle are raised in an environment with ample space to pasture and with absolute control from raising the cattle through processing, packaging and shipment, Clare Valley Gold leaves nothing to a chance.
Gawler River District Pork
Grain Fed in the Gawler River district of South Australia, this quality assured succulent pork combines leanness with flavour and achieves the marbling traits of the very best of meats for your enjoyment. All stock are a blend of three pure breed animals, being Duroc, Landrace and Large White, to give consistent marbling throughout the meat and maintaining low fat scores on the rest of the animal.
Kangaroo Island Lamb
Kangaroo Island Lamb are not confined to feeding yards, they are free to roam on the farm. They’re not artificially managed or fed grain treated additives, but instead feed on natural sub clover rye grass – resulting in a flavoursome, high quality, and tender meat. Kangaroo Island lamb is as natural as Kangaroo Island itself. The island’s mild climate, the lush and pristine spring pastures, the stress-free environment, together with the maritime surroundings produce tender choice lamb with a subtle salt like sharpness – a result of the sea spray combining with rain on a pasture.
This rare honey is produced by the Ligurian bee on the pristine Kangaroo Island, off Australia’s south coast. The island is a Ligurian bee sanctuary and therefore is home to the purest strain of these bees in the world. With the hives located in one of the most remote parts of the island, the bees have access to the cup gum flower, which helps to produce this pure, organic honey, yielding a delicate and subtle flavour.
