Adelaide gears up for fire and whisky

Jake Kellie, star chef at Adelaide’s arkhé, has unveiled a series of pop-up collaborations with other top chefs from Australia and around the world.

arkhé & friends, presented by Laphroaig Whisky, will be a series of events that will feature 12 chef collaborations over 12 months, with the year of food over fire commencing in April.

Adelaide’s first open-flame restaurant, arkhé, opened in November 2021 and co-owner and executive chef Kellie said: “We are so excited to be bringing arkhé & friends to life in 2024.

"Collaborations such as these expose us to new audiences and different ways of cooking, keeping us at the top of our game. 

"Following the success of our collaboration events with Michelin-starred chef David Thompson, Martin Boetz and Louis Tikaram in May last year, we understand the appetite for visiting chefs and look forward to bringing a series of rare, world class experiences to the people of Adelaide and Australia.”

Each month will see a different guest chef appear at arkhé over the course of a year.

The first three events to take place in the series will be:

# Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz, Porteno (Sydney): Thursday, April 11

# Jemma Whiteman, Ante (Sydney): Thursday, May 9 

# Mat Lindsay, Ester (Sydney): Thursday, June 27 

The full line up will be announced over the coming months, and will include big chef names like Vaughan Mabee of Amisfield (NZ), Rosheen Kaul (Melbourne’s Etta) and James Lowe of Lyle’s in London.

Each event will showcase Scottish whisky through cocktails, tasting flights and culinary creations and Laphroaig will extend the chef collaboration series with Jake Kellie by hosting a series of events at partner restaurants in Agnes (Brisbane), Matilda (Melbourne) and Ester (Sydney) from July to September 2024.
