Southern Ocean Lodge
KI Food Safari
KI Food Safari
First mounted in 2011, the KI Food Safari has fast become an institution among lovers of the carefully grown produce and rich seafood of Kangaroo Island. It combines the elegant cliff-top luxury of Southern Ocean Lodge with daily expeditions among the producers who have helped forge the island’s reputation for high-quality food and sustainable practices.
As a founding host of the event, treasured Barossa cook Maggie Beer has lent her warmth and passion for local produce to all four editions, joined over the years by a succession of legendary Australian chefs, including James Viles, Mark Best, Damien Pignolet and Simon Bryant, as co-safari leaders.
Returning in August 2018, the week long Safari event promises to be a hands-on, muddy-boots paddock and vineyard discovery of Kangaroo Island and its produce as it journeys to the menus at Southern Ocean Lodge. Highlights of the itinerary may include the fine cheeses and yoghurts of Island Pure Sheep Dairy, a visit to the green pastures of Southrock Lamb and wine tasting among the vines at The Islander Estate. Guests might pluck marron from the farm, savour pure Ligurian honey straight from the hive and shuck oysters fresh from the leases at American River.
In between, guests will be able to eat, drink and rub shoulders with their hosts at winery lunches, cooking demonstrations, barbecues and sunset drinks. Each night will involve a celebration of the day’s harvest with a spectacular menu served around the table at Southern Ocean Lodge.
