Autumn has arrived. That crisp air, the crunchy leaves – Adelaide is truly golden this time of year. Heading into the cooler months, it’s time to start planning a weekend getaway to the beautiful Hills, bunker down in a cosy café and turn the pages of our shiny new autumn edition.
In our sixth edition of Fritz magazine, we meet some incredible South Australians who make our state a rewarding community to be a part of. Editor Katie meets a collection of inspiring refugees who tell humbling stories about how they came by boat and their love for Adelaide as their new home.
We’re constantly amazed by all the beautiful souls doing incredible things right on our doorstep, and we’re proud to introduce you to more in our Movers and Shakers features. Meet the duo taking McLaren Vale to New York State, the woman passionate about West Terrace Cemetery, and the young-gun motorcyclist taking the world by storm.
Speaking of South Aussie legends, we get behind the wheel with ABC Radio Adelaide presenter Jules Schiller. He takes us to some of his favourite Adelaide haunts and shares his life story with us – spies, kids, laughs and all.
The folk behind Rundle Street icon Miss Gladys Sym Choon let us into their quirky apartment above the store and tell us what it’s been like to call the space home for the past 32 years. Discover what’s behind ‘that’ red balcony – it’s a beautiful, untold story we’re so thrilled to share.
We explore the Adelaide Hills as it turns all shades of red and gold – the perfect time to visit – and take you with us on our journey to experience the food, faces, wine, roadside stalls and every beautiful twist and turn in between. Now it’s your turn to get lost in this picture-perfect region.
Feeling peckish? We get busy in the kitchen with some of Tasting Australia’s top chefs and business owners, crafting their favourite vegan dishes. If you’re more of a sweet-tooth, fret not – we’ve got you covered with our Three Ways With recipe featuring honey. Halloumi and honey, anyone?
With all this food, we got a little thirsty, so the folks at the Wheaty made us our very own fritz-inspired beer. We got our hands dirty and learnt how to make it in the brewery with these Adelaide brewing legends. Go and try the beer for yourself – it’s on tap at the Wheatsheaf now!
There’s also Hugh Sheridan’s top SA picks, a bookshop in the desert and architectural delights – so get flickin’ those pages folks.
Thanks for reading with us, and thanks to everyone who was part of this issue. We couldn’t be more grateful to tell all your stories. It’s a joy to do what we do. Happy reading, happy autumn.
