Today in the Barossa there is a living, thriving food culture, handed down through seven generations from the German and English settlers who arrived here in the 1840s.

The Barossa Food Story is one of abundance and frugality, of generous hospitality and humble, time-honed home cooking. It speaks of the early settler's reverance for the natural wonders of this region and their determination to preserve, enjoy and share them.
