Fringe venue partners with London ‘Aussie café’ operator Daisy Green

AUSTRALIAN culture’s premiere outpost at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the award-winning House of Oz, which occupies the King’s Hall Newington for the duration, showcasing Australian creativity and talent.

As part of that offering this year, from the 4th to the 27th of August, House of Oz has gone into partnership with Daisy Green Collection, an independent group of London-based Aussie cafes and restaurants, to present ‘an exciting culinary journey to match the breadth of talent to be discovered onstage’.

This rare venture outside of London, where Daisy Green has 15 venues, is a chance for Scots to catch its bright, bold and relaxed style, via signature brunch dishes such as Avocado on Charcoal, Famous Banana Bread Sandwich and its Fancy Bacon Roll on paratha roti.

Founder Prue Freeman said: “Daisy Green takes on Edinburgh – a city that we adore and my husband and I have spent many happy times visiting. Our pop up will be bigger and better than last year with an all-day menu showcasing some real Daisy classic dishes as well as our much-loved Aussie Lamingtons.”

In the evenings, resident chef and Aussie native, Michael Bagnall, will be serving his own menu of specials showcasing native ingredients from the Australian continent.

On the menu will be a whole host of distinctive Aussie names, including Coopers beer, Mr Black craft coffee liqueur, Four Pillars Gin, Vegemite and TimTams.
