Gather your foodie friends, young and old, because all the delectable, delights of Adelaide’s Eastern Suburbs are coming under one roof this April!
If you are a local, you’ll know that there is a deliciously diverse array of cuisines to be found in Adelaide’s east and if you’re not it’s time to discover! The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has decided to bring them together to celebrate everything the area has to offer!
Featuring a market of authentic produce, fresh ingredients and pantry staples that can be found within the local area, Food Secrets at the Green brings together an eclectic mix of fare and flavours created by food and beverage manufacturers located within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.
Part of the inaugural Adelaide Food Fringe program, the free event will also feature cooking demonstrations, live music, wine and gin tastings and kids’ cooking classes, run by Scoffed Cooking School.
City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters Mayor, Robert Bria, said: “We’re lucky to have such a vast selection of high quality food and drink manufacturers in our suburbs. Our Food Secrets bus tours always sell out and this is the perfect way to open them up to more people. It’s an opportunity to purchase locally-made produce and discover some hidden gems that you may not have known were based in our City.”
Food Secrets at the Green will be held at Norwood Green on Magill Road, Norwood, which boasts a vibrant sense of community and a love for local. Mayor, Robert Bria, said: “This event is not only an opportunity for those outside our City to see what’s available here, but also endorses a great sense of community—local people buying local produce, helping out local businesses. It’s hard to find fresher ingredients than those made on your doorstep!”
Food Secrets at the Green is run by the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters and takes place on Sunday 5 April 2020 from 10am-3pm at Norwood Green, 100 Magill Road, Norwood.
The event is FREE but tickets for the tastings and cooking classes must be booked in advance here

We all know the benefits of incorporating fitness into our lives, but is that always enough motivation to juggle your schedules and get you to the gym?
Studio Pilates is a state-of-the-art, scientifically-based way of transforming your entire body in the quickest time possible, making it perfect for busy mums and business women.
Instructor designed classes also mean you’re saved the mental hassle of designing your own work-out or choosing what machine to go on next.
Norwood instructor, and owner, Joanne Thiele tailors forty minute Pilates reformer classes that are fast paced and intense, delivering incredible total body sculpting workouts.
Studio Pilates is currently situated in Norwood, Adelaide, Henley and soon-to-be Unley in 2020!
We spoke to KIDDO publisher Charlotte and 3 other busy, local mums and business women about the benefits of Pilates:
Name: Charlotte Chambers Occupation: Mumma and Publisher @ Kiddo Mag How long have you been doing SP?
2 years-ish How many times do you attend per week?
2 – 3 Why did you start?
I have never been someone that has exercised regularly or really enjoyed exercising. I have always liked the thought of reformer Pilates, bouncing around with your feet in straps looked like fun… and it was. I started and haven’t stopped, the workout is fun, fast and incredibly challenging. I do the 6:30am classes which fit perfectly into my hectic life. The trainers are fantastic and welcome everyone of all ages, sizes and abilities. What results have you seen?
Well.. I can lift 19 bags of shopping out of the car and into the house without breaking a sweat, wrestle a toddler off the playground with ease, it has also changed my body shape. There is something empowering about building muscle…you don’t realise how much you need it in your daily life.
Name: Rebecca Morse Occupation: Newsreader / Radio host How long have you been doing SP?
Since the start of 2019 How many times do you attend per week?
2-3. The Hit107 team does a session every Monday morning in the city and I sneak off to the Henley Beach studio every Sunday morning before the kids are up. I try to fit a third in whenever I can. Why did you start?
I was worried when I started working in breakfast radio that my exercise routine would go out the window, so when I discovered Studio Pilates was across the road from Hit107 it was the perfect solution. The Henley Beach studio has become part of my weekend routine as well. What results have you seen?
My core is stronger and more defined and that horrendous burn in the glutes has been worth it! I think my terrible posture has also improved.
Name: Ally Aoukar
Occupation: Director of Events & Socials @ Out In The Paddock How long have you been doing SP?
I joined SP back in early March and have been doing it for 10 months. How many times do you attend per week?
I try and attend 3 – 4 classes a week Why did you start?
Since I was 23 I have always done some form of PT or gym routine. After my second baby I found it difficult to fit in a gym workout that gave me the results I wanted without feeling like I needed to punish my body. Turning 40 this year I had a realisation, I wanted to accept, nourish and honour my body. I had done Pilates previously at other studios but never felt it was for me.
Trying Studio Pilates was the best thing I ever did. The instructors are welcoming, warm and encouraging. It’s the best way to start my day. It’s a quick workout that also allows you to be mindful of your body and to connect with it. The instructors push me beyond my limits while allowing me to listen to my body by giving it time to rest when it’s also needed. What results have you seen?
It’s changed my body in shape, tone, strength and the mental change is for me by far the best thing. I want to continue to nourish my body and engage in activities that strengthen and benefit it for the rest of my life. I don’t want to feel like I have to punish my body to get results. It’s the best fit for me at this stage in my life.
Name: Belinda Petersen Occupation: Director of BPPR, a results-driven public relations & strategic communications agency How long have you been doing SP?
Since Jo opened the Norwood studio three years ago. I just hit over 300 classes – woohoo! How many times do you attend per week?
I aim for 3 times per week. It’s the perfect start to the day – it clears my head ahead of a busy day full of meetings, non-stop emails, and the morning school rush! Why did you start?
I have scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and visited the physio regularly. With two young boys (Jack 12, Hunter 7) and a job that requires a lot of computer work, I found that quite often (monthly!) I would be heading to the physio due to chronic neck and lower back pain. What results have you seen?
Since starting Studio Pilates, my visits to the physio have been rare. In general, I am definitely stronger and leaner – there’s still a six pack under there waiting to come out though! As a non-stop mum who owns and runs a busy PR Agency, I find the 40-minute classes are the perfect length too.
GOLDIE + ACE ARE GOING BACK TO THE FUTURE… FOR THE FUTURE
As children of the 80’s and 90’s, Goldie + Ace designers Alana Tiller and Chris Kontos know all too well the beauty of a well-loved hand-me-down. A time when many kids clothes were made to last, and designed for fun, when Kerplunk was life and Alf ruled the world.
Goldie + Ace’s brand-new collection ‘Family Ties’ takes inspiration from retro fashion, family values, and growing up in Australia. You’ll find the coolest acid washed drop waist jeans (the Mini Mom Jean), soft corduroy overalls ( or dungarees as mum would say, colourful jersey skivvy’s (I mean, who didn’t rock a skivvy in the 80’s?!) and old school parkas (that even have zip-off sleeves).
Ever since their launch in 2017, Goldie + Ace’s focus has been centered around creating quality garments that are in-line with their mantra of ‘buy less, wear it more, then pass it on’. Their aim has always been to create a shopping experience that leaves a minimal footprint on the planet. Director/Designer Tiller says,
“We live in a time where every purchase should be considered. A time where we all need to take a more responsible and thoughtful approach to the consumption of fashion and our children’s wardrobes.”
Their commitment to using only compostable or reusable packaging components (if planted in soil, their e-store thank you cards will actually grow daisies!) is a big step towards a better future.
Director / Designer Kontos says, “Now is the time to act and think about the future of our planet. Brands can’t achieve 100% ethical and sustainable practises, but all the little things definitely help the movement.”
Goldie + Ace is stocked exclusively in selected boutiques across Australia and internationally. Being wore by celebrity children including Bodhi, Forest and Poet (Children of actors Teresa Palmer & Mark Webber) Billie, Darcy and Tom Judd (Children of AFL royalty Bec and Chris Judd), Zion & Gia Clark (Children of Aussie model Nicole Trunfio & music mogul Gary Clark Jr), Goldie Ellis (Daughter of Lindy Klim.
Goldie + Ace Family Ties Winter collection will be released on the 1st of March.

All that is old is new again as adaptations of Dr Doolittle, Little Women and The Secret Garden grace our screens again in 2020. It’s little wonder then that we should find ourselves at an advance screening for Emma., the fifth film adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the meddling matchmaker, Emma Woodhouse. Autumn de Wilde’s directorial debut is scattered with moments of light-hearted comedy, visual splendour and a swoon-worthy Mr Knightley (played by Johnny Flynn).
Anya Taylor-Joy brings Emma’s headstrong haughtiness to light via a nuanced expression that reveals the intricacies of youthful overconfidence and the loneliness, anger and shame that at times lingers beneath the surface. Bill Nighy, Mia Goth and Miranda Hart are a superb supporting cast, balancing moments of brevity and raw humanity with aplomb.
Jane Austen may have described Emma Woodhouse as her “heroine whom no one but myself will much like”, however it is hard to not like de Wilde’s playful romp around the English countryside. Whilst this latest retelling is hardly revolutionary (surely, nothing will ever top Clueless for a reinterpretation!) it will make for a lovely night out with friends, or a classic introduction for your kiddo to the world of Jane Austen.
