Slinging Plates at Barrio


On the last Tuesday of every month, Barrio head chef Francisco Smoje invites a chef friend to join him in the kitchen for Slinging Plates.

David Lovett joins the line-up on Tuesday 28th May with Moorooduc wines to match.

Renowned for classic Italian cooking (and the best focaccia in the Shire), David Lovett is very much a Nonna in the kitchen. It’s all done by hand, no fancy gadgets or methods, just simple honest food, highlighting the best produce of the Northern Rivers. 

“I’m looking forward to being back in the kitchen, playing with fire, making the most of Francisco’s fantastic charcoal grill and putting it through its paces.” – David Lovett


“Slinging Plates is a great way for businesses to support each other and for locals to try something new. It's about people hanging out and having new conversations - a new kind of evening that engages locals, chefs and winemakers, and becomes a discussion point.” - Head Chef Francisco Smoje
