Doing it right

How do you know you’re doing hummus right? When the international visitors tell you it’s some of the best...

Like bubbles? Francisco Smoje, head chef and one of the founders of Barrio Eatery & Bar, is renowned for the refined flavours and humble simplicity of his food. Soon he is teaming up with Julz Recsei from The Sun Bistro to present ‘Bubbles’ – a celebration of Barrio dining paired with sparkling cocktails and sparkling wines.

Julz Recsei says that the wine selection will be inspired by his own long experience of running bottleshops in Byron and engaging with customers, finding out what they really want, and searching out the lesser known gems. ‘Champagne is not the only sort of sparkling, and even within that region there are different grapes and methods employed, but there are a wide variety of sparkling wines made in Australia that suit a range of tastes’, says Julz.

‘Sparkling wine is not just for weddings and the Melbourne Cup, in fact when paired with the right food it can enhance the culinary experience, open up tastebuds as well as complementing the mood of an experience.

‘The focus of this evening will be on Australian sparklings, and different varietals, showing the time and place to use them. The mood and the people you are around all affect the choice of wine’.

$69 for canapés, 2 courses and sides with matching wines
