Our 2019 lunches are a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a unique experience that celebrates South Australian people and produce – combining fascinating personalities, incredible food and an exclusive insight into festival program highlights – only on The Palais. We’re blending some of SA’s most famous chefs and personalities with extraordinary Festival inspired entertainment, creating a Long Lunch series you’ll never forget. Stories, songs, music and performance all drawn from the festival program, served up with great SA food from our favourite cooks.
This is food and festival taken to the next level, so be quick – there are only three lunches and tickets are limited.
Duncan Welgemoed, Adelaide’s most acclaimed chef is loved nationally for his bold, unapologetic cooking style and we’re delighted to have him on the Palais, celebrating the tastes and sounds of Africa along with members of South Africa’s astonishing Isango Ensemble whose A Man of Good Hope is destined to be a huge festival highlight.
This will be one very special lunch.

Event additional information
Duncan’s cooking is influenced by the melting pot that is South Africa, along with Portugese and Italian godparents and a music addiction! His renowned Bistro Dom won Australia’s Hottest Restaurant in SA, delivered a Gourmet Traveller Top 100 listing and crowned him The Advertiser’s Chef of the Year (2013) and his current restaurant, Africola was named The Advertiser’s Restaurant of the Year (2017). He will channel his South African roots along with the North African influences of Africola to come up with a menu especially for us.
The Isango Ensemble will perform a taste of the joyous marimba driven music that is at the core of their award-winning show and the company’s founder Mark Dornford-May will give insights into the creation and world-wide success of this extraordinary troupe, which combines both social vision and performance brilliance that has taken them all over the world from the West End in London to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
