Fire the key ingredient for special barbecue dinners

Byron Bay's Barrio Eatery & Bar is beckoning to meat lovers with the launch of its once-a-month guest chef barbecue feasts hosted by chef Santiago Socrate (above).

Alastair Waddell kicks off the series on Wednesday, June 15, and will be followed by Matt Stone for "a creative BBQ" on July 6.

Waddell is known for his produce-driven cuisine using seasonal crops grown by the farm at Frida’s Field and other local producers.

"I am very excited to be representing Fridas Field at Barrio while cooking over fire with Santiago and the restaurant’s team," Waddell said.

"Our menu will focus on local beef and pork with some delicious surprises from Frida’s garden too. After working closely with Santiago for many years I am thrilled to be collaborating with him again.’

Fire is a central theme to Barrio Eatery & Bar.

“Our monthly guest chef BBQ is a great opportunity to share my favourite style of cooking with friends and colleagues, because that's what Asado (cooking over fire) is about," says Socrate.

"I am looking forward to firing up the grill with my friend and mentor chef Alastair Waddell once again."

Prices will: span $15 to $25 plates (and there will be vegan-friendly options. There will be two sittings at 5/5.30pm or 7/7.30pm. Booking is essential. See
