It’s Newtown meets Radelaide and frankly, we couldn’t be more keen for it. Let’s just say, Mary’s knows how to throw a damn good party and this fab lil’ collab is just the start of everything we’re looking forward to for the rest of this year.
Basically, the burger mecca of Sydney is hailing all her fave hospo brothers and sisters in a series of partays (told you this was just the start) donned as Jump In The Fire, a title inspired by a Metallica track of the same name. This culinary collab series means you can expect a pretty hefty line-up of talent cruising into Mary’s over the next few months.
The first of this series will see Duncan Welgemoed of Africola (AKA Radelaide's king of culinary cool vibes) and Taras Ochota of Ochota Barrels reel in new tipple plus a new burger. We rang Duncan earlier this week to suss the menu for you guys:
“We’ve got a short, sharp menu," he told us. "Basically, we’re doing a French dip burger, which is like a burger with the bun dipped in gravy. We’ve got fried chicken and butter chicken sauce, and then we’ve got fries with chimichurri and tahini sauce.”
As for the Jump in the Fire line-up that follows after, expect pre-dinner masterclasses and wine laybacks with food taking the beautiful formation of remixed burger stacks and sambos. For more deets, jump over here.
Tunes will be churned out from local bands and just so you know, these are the epic collabs that have been locked in so far:
Duncan Welgemoed (Africola, Adelaide) with Taras Ochota (Ochota Barrels, Adelaide Hills).
Campbell Burton (Campbell Burton Wines, ex-Builder's Arms, Melbourne), with Josh Murphy (Harley & Rose, ex-Builder's Arms, Melbourne).
Roger and Sue (Living Wines, Hobart) with Luke Burgess (Ex-Garagiste, Gun for Hire, Handsome Man, Hobart).
Giovanni Paradiso (10 William St, Fratelli Paradiso, Paradiso Wine Imports, Sydney) with Enrico Tomelleri (10 William St, Sydney).
