Award-winning Argentinian Chef Miguel Escalante is flying in from Republica Restaurant (previously Otto & Icebergs in Sydney) and joining Head Chef Francisco Smoje in the kitchen at Barrio Eatery & Bar for an Argentinian feast with Byron Bay market produce and fire.
“After cooking in all the continents and the last 10 years working as a successful chef in my home-land of Argentina, I am looking forward to returning to Australia (my second home) where I spent many years as a chef, and sharing my new South American techniques and cooking style while using the best produce of the Northern Rivers. I have heard wonderful things about Barrio’s co-owner Francisco Smoje from local Byron Bay friends and this is a great opportunity for both of us to join forces and create an incredible dining experience together.”
