On Monday night Adelaide Food Central was invited by the Lord Mayor to celebrate Restaurant Orana being named Australian Restaurant of the Year at the 2018 Gourmet Traveller Awards. We were extremely excited to attend this event and to celebrate with all the people that have been involved in making Orana the success it is today.
Jock Zonfrillo owner and chef of Orana based his menu around 16 years of research and exploration of the Australian land and the culture and history that comes with it. Orana meaning ‘welcome’ in many Aboriginal languages is the basis of his restaurants culture. It is an extremely proud moment for Jock and his team, as being awarded this title is a huge achievement.
We would love to thank the Lord Mayor and Jock for inviting us to celebrate this exciting milestone for Restaurant Orana. Special thanks to Epicure Catering and the Town Hall for hosting such an important and beautiful event.
