Review by Debbie Mazo


As viewers of the Summer Olympics acquaint themselves with the beauty of Sydney, Australia, they'll also discover a region that has undergone a major transformation when it comes to food and wine preparation. Although the debate has waged for years whether Australian cooking has any style at all, there's plenty of evidence that Australian cuisine-full of adventurous combinations-is alive and well. Stop by Food-Fun-Wine, and explore all the culinary sights that South Australia has to offer.

Hosted by Graeme Andrews, a passionate Australian food and wine expert, Food-Fun-Wine highlights the latest and greatest food and hospitality news, reviews, and recipes from Australian celebrity chefs. If you've always thought Sydney was about fish and chips, think again. The new flavors of Australia showcase subtle influences from the area's multicultural population with Asian and Mediterranean dishes winning most of the praise.

For the best of food in South Wales, check out the recipes archive with innovative offerings from some of the region's most celebrated chefs. Selections combining local ingredients with international cooking styles include a Chicken and Yoghurt Curry, a gold medal recipe seasoned with turmeric, Garam Masala, coriander, and chili. Or, you can kitchen test a Creamy Chowder featuring South Australian oysters.

With the perfect climate and a sophisticated wine drinking public, wine connoisseurs are regularly selecting Australian wines as some of the best vintage in the world. If you're a wine fan, the Wine Section at Food-Fun-Wine can update you on the latest grape varieties on the Australian wine scene. With their pioneering spirit, Australian winemakers are taking on the toughest challenges when it comes to winemaking, even the complex mixture of spicy cherries and plums that make up a Pinot Noir. If you're lucky enough to visit South Australia, make sure you book a seat on Adelaide's Food and Barossa Wine tour. Sign up for this tour, and you'll get a behind-the-scenes visit to Australia's greatest food market, Adelaide's historic Central Market, followed by a chance to sip some of the finest wine among the vines.

There's no doubt that the restaurants of South Australia will capture everyone's attention at this year's Olympic celebration. Food-Fun-Wine lets you in on some of the winners with a list of the top ten restaurants of South Australia for 2000. The list features the talented chefs who are setting personal bests when it comes to the vibrant dishes that make up contemporary Australian cuisine.
