My Australia Sunday Lunch
A three-course lunch from Africola's Duncan Welgemoed at The Unicorn.
September 12, 2017
From the prawn cocktail to the huge map of Australia on the wall, The Unicorn is unashamedly Australian. And they're about to take it even further, launching a new 'My Australia' lunch series. On selected Saturdays, the Paddington pub will feature some of Australia's best chefs, who will display their interpretation of Aussie cuisine. Award-winning chef Duncan Welgemoed has been named as the first to participate.
Originally from Johannesburg, Welgemoed heads Adelaide's acclaimed restaurant Africola. Since his arrival in Australia in 2010, he has quickly established himself as one of Adelaide's top chefs — his style has been described as 'more indigenous rather than modern Australian'. Welgemoed will work next to The Unicorn's head chef James Garside, dishing up three courses, including roasted sardines with zhoug, peri peri chicken with Boom Chakalaka sauce (an Africola favourite) and a smoked chocolate and salted butter caramel torte. The lunch costs $50 per person, and owner Jake Smyth has also selected a number of natural wines for the occasion, available at an extra cost.
