Secret Recipes


How does food play a role in our experience of storytelling, culture and community?

From First Nations chefs to our newest neighbours, ‘Secret Recipes’ takes us on an immersive journey of welcome and belonging, through food, arts, story and music.

Guests will explore shared traditions and new stories, while indulging in a mouth-watering meal.

Throughout the season, a range of performers will share stories, music, poetry and arts, while chefs will prepare and serve delicious dishes.

No event will be the same – come along to one, two, or all three of the events in our 2022 Adelaide Fringe season to experience an immersion into cultural experiences that activates every sense.

A different cuisine and culture will be explored each week, taking guests on a journey across the globe.
