Duncan Welgemoed: Africola

South Australian hotspot Africola has become one of the most lauded restaurants in the state thanks to the innovative efforts of its executive chef and founder Duncan Welgemoed. The ode to South African cuisine may be Adelaide based, but those living in Byron Bay will now have a chance to try the venue’s flavours for themselves, conveniently sans flight, at a one-off dinner at Harvest Newrybar on Wednesday 3 October.

We asked Duncan how he became involved in this series? ‘I love the idea of foraging with head chef Alastair Waddell and wild food researcher Peter Hardwick to create a menu exploring Australia’s under-utilised ingredients,’ he said.

‘My ethos is that I’ve always wanted to create a restaurant that was bigger than any one person in our team. We all have that one goal. Our work does not only stay within the four walls of our restaurant. We constantly get involved with other projects that interest and challenge us – we push ourselves in that respect; we never play the safe game, ever. We really excel outside of our comfort zone.’

What could foodies expect from this event? ‘Engaging with the diner is a central tenet of the Africola experience, and we will bring something unexpected to the diner’s experience.’

Duncan Welgemoed is from award-winning Africola restaurant (named South Australia’s best restaurant in the prestigious Australian Financial Review Top Restaurants Awards 2018)  The contemporary African eatery with a western soundtrack sees Duncan smoke and baste seasonal foods in their own juices. He cooks with produce from local SA farmers and growers – with all animals bred and raised exclusively for his restaurant.
