About Food features some of South Australia's key food and wine personalities as they discuss their passion for the local industry.
Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said the film shows why South Australia has a world class reputation for food and wine.
“The enthusiasm and excitement these chefs and winemakers have for South Australia is inspiring, and demonstrates why our state is so unique in the way it creates a community by sharing ideas, recipes and techniques,” he said. “The film highlights the partnerships between producers, chefs, artisans and winemakers.”
The film was made by the creative team behind popular new Adelaide magazine CityMag - Farrin Foster, Joshua Fanning, and Marie Totsikas, with Matt Salleh and Rose Tucker managing the production.
The Through Local Eyes film project is a series of 30 YouTube videos where local filmmakers showcase the state through their eyes. The project has so far involved more than 70 local film-makers, producers and musicians, and has featured many SA business owners, operators, and local identities.
The films have collectively amassed more than 1.1 million views since the project was launched in May 2013.
The release of About Food has been timed to coincide with Tourism Australia's global advertising campaign Restaurant Australia, by highlighting the strength of South Australia's food and wine offering.
“South Australia's premium food and wine is a major attraction for international visitors. We have an exceptional reputation internationally when it comes to what we produce in our clean, green environment,” said Minister Bignell.
The film features interviews and footage of Sharon Romeo from Fino, Duncan Welgemoed from Bistro Dom, James Erskine from Jauma Wine, Ricky Chau from Ricky's Kitchen, Gill Gordon-Smith from Fall From Grace Wines, Gareth and Emily Grierson from Red Door Bakery, and Andy Nowell from Happy Motel.
