Duncan Welgemoed’s Guest Chef Dinners, Adelaide


Duncan Welgemoed of Africola is currently running a series of dinners with guest chefs.  I’ve been to two at his restaurant Africola already – one with David Moyle of Franklin in Hobart (formerly of The Stackings at Peppermint Bay, former Top 100 restaurant), and one with Dave Verheul from The Town Mouse (current Top 100).  I also attended a third dinner held at Golden Boy (just around the corner) where Duncan teamed up with Victor Liong of Lee Ho Fook, Melbourne.

These dinners are fantastic – not just because you get an awesome meal at a great price, but also because you get to see and meet the chefs, and in these cases, they’re all chefs I admire.  I loved David Moyle’s food at The Stackings, and I’m about to get down to Franklin next month.  The Town Mouse is one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne (Carlton).  What’s also great is you get to have Duncan’s food too – he and the guest chef go dish for dish, and the kitchen’s always a hive of activity.

There are two consecutive sittings for these dinners – 6:00pm and 8:30pm, so it’s fast paced and fun, and I love the fact that you don’t know what you’re going to be eating until you arrive.

I can’t wait for the next one! Here are some pics.
