But anyway, onto happier thoughts - after months of anticipation, Tasting Australia landed in Adelaide last week and I couldn't wait to throw myself head first in, starting with Fork On The Road on Sunday.
Fork On The Road is a food truck festival that, this year alone, has also featured at the Adelaide Food and Wine Festival. This time however, there was a lot more choice, with the added bonus of having the Tasting Australia "Town Square" there as well.
As you can see, it was a pretty busy afternoon - and this was at 3pm! I decided to head into the Town Square to decide on what I wanted and fingers crossed the lines would be smaller once I had decided. As I wandered around Town Square, with the sounds of Poh talking on stage, I found myself slightly disappointed that many of the regional set ups wouldn't be opening until later on in the week. Luckily, at least the Barossa, Be Consumed tent was open and ready for business.
I started off with a glass of this gorgeous Alicante Bouchart from Hart of the Barossa winery. It was lovely and cold with some sweet flavours, just what I needed as I wandered around in the heat of the afternoon!
After much wandering and deliberation, I decided on Mexican La Cantina Co. Authentic Mexican is naturally GF and the line up for these guys was insane, so I had peace of mind that they had a high turnover of food. The Quesadilla I chose was a Pulled Pork with Potato, Pineapple Salsa and Cheese :) If you every have the chance to go to a Fork on the Road and these guys are there, definitely check them out - you won't regret it!!
