Slinging Plates at Barrio

  • Barrio Byron Bay 1 Porter Street Byron Bay (map)

On Tuesday 30 July, local farmer Palisa Anderson from Boon Luck Farm and restauranteur of Chat Thai is slinging plates with head chef Francisco Smoje. Expect Asian inspired dishes using hard-to-source organic ingredients from the farm.

In addition to supplying the family’s own cafes, Palisa’s success as a restaurateur-turned-farmer has given her a world stage. Boon Luck Farm supplied Danish chef Rene Redzepi during his 6 month Noma restaurant pop-up in Sydney in 2016 (He then asked her to address his Copenhagen MAD symposium for 1000 of the world’s best chefs and restaurateurs) and also supplies Australia’s top restaurants including Momofuku, Quay and Ester.

“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

Jared Dixon is pairing his favourite Jilly Wines from his small batch winemaking company based in Clunes. Each vintage is the culmination of a creative journey, and marks a time and a place of creativity and inspiration that can never be reproduced in the same way.

And if that’s not enough to lure you out of the house on a Tuesday night, perhaps the prices will.
