What you'll do
What is fritz? A Fruchoc? Frog cakes? Things that make any Adelaide local (including myself) proud. Take a walk with me to find out about these and other South Australian treats and where to purchase them, some being increasingly hard to find. As we walk through Adelaide, you'll learn about quirky culinary histories and how these foods have shaped a small but important part of Adelaide's identity (as well as mine!). You'll taste mostly sweet food as well as collect goodies to take away with you along the way, and leave feeling like a local.
Hi! I was born and raised in Adelaide and run my Experiences under my business Flamboyance Tours - a Finalist in the 2019 South Australian Tourism Awards. As well as extensive city knowledge, I have a strong love for my home city. I also have international tourism industry knowledge after three European summers as a trip leader for multi-award winning company Topdeck Travel. In Europe, I guided tours across 20+ countries focused on history and culture, including information on different cuisines. *Please contact me if you have a request for a date not listed, I do my best to be flexible! *I also host city tour 'Be an Adelaide local - intimate walk' as a separate experience, so check that out too :)
You will receive sample tastings from local providers of some of Adelaide's best treats, and also a small goody bag of extra…
You will take home a detailed recommendations list with further food and drink options in Adelaide, including suburban spots.

Where you'll be
On weekdays we begin at Haigh's Chocolates and wander through the amazing Adelaide Arcade, then taking in Rundle Mall and City Cross Arcade for Balfours delights, then to the Adelaide Central Market, where my grandparents once owned a stall. On Saturdays only, it's a reverse order - we start at the Adelaide Central Market and finish at Haigh's. This is confirmed by me on booking!

- This is not suitable for gluten free/vegans. Vegetarians will only skip the fritz sample of the tour. It is suited well to sweet-tooths :) - On Saturdays, we meet at the Adelaide Central Market (Grote St entrance by Bakers Delight), and finish at Haigh's (because of the early market closing time)
