Chefs of the Murray


Organised by Food Riverland, the Chefs of the Murray event promoted Riverland food and wine.

The Chefs of the Murray dinners were originally held each October (2005-2012) as the culmination of a mentoring project between a guest chef, local TAFE SA apprentice chefs & hospitality students, and regional food and wine producers.

During 2013 no Chefs of the Murray event was held, as the committee re-assessed the event’s future.
