A night amongst the stars

With a touch of romance, local flavours and a magical location – the Enchanted Fig Tree extends its starlit dining on Kangaroo Island.

Visiting chef Alana Brabin will be revealing her menu for the second half of the Enchanted Fig Tree’s season as she extends the popular Starlit dinners from January, through to the 11 March 2023. 

Alana is equally at home foraging foods from the land or sharing her fire cooking skills and techniques through collaboration and masterclass workshops. This year Alana is the food curator and ambassador for the Adelaide Beer and BBQ festival, with some very exciting announcements coming up soon.

Alana has been featured at Tasting Australia Town Square, Beer and BQQ festival, Pinot Palooza, and is a key participant of The Travelling Table Festival – celebrating migrant culture and food.

Alana’s passion project is creating unique food experiences in the Barossa, with an aim to share the joy of cooking, creating, and the sharing of food. The Gastronomo team and the many Island food producers are looking forward to what menu Alana creates to round off the second half of the season at The Enchanted Fig Tree.

Inspired by the southern stars and colours of the universe, the Starlit dinners start with canapes and a welcome cocktail in a secret location before guests are led down a winding path to a small opening in the Enchanted Fig Tree, just before dusk.

Inside the tree’s awesome canopy, a selection of tasting courses is revealed as the tiny bud lights and candles provide the flickering light to dine.

As the last sweet taste is served for dessert, the tree and surrounds are lit up with a garden of light, colour and a thousand stars. 

Special Opening for Valentine’s Day

For visitors thinking about “popping the question” or celebrating years of glorious love, the Gastronomo team will also be opening one very special Starlit dinner on Valentine’s Day for an evening full of romance and magic.

The special Valentine dinner includes 7 tasting courses (3 canapes, 4 plated) a complimentary lover’s cocktail on arrival and the first glass of bubbles in the tree. Live entertainment will also feature amongst the flame lit limbs and twinkling lights.

The extended Starlit dinner dates are as follows:

January 2023: Every Friday and Saturday night

February through to 11th March 2023 – every Saturday night
