Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

Barrio Eatery & Bar have a monthly collaborative cooking event called Slinging Plates. They invite local restauranteurs, chefs, and sommeliers to create affordable dishes at fixed price points for the local community to enjoy. 

Held on the last Tuesday of every month, the menu is designed by a different culinary artist, allowing them the opportunity to work with local producers, and the freedom to create something different from what they’re usually known for. 

This Tuesday 30 April Barrio head chef Francisco Smoje welcomes Peruvian chefs Andres and Franco from A Chefs Pocket, who will share the real soul food of Peru with vibrant dishes highlighting the variety of fresh produce available in the Northern Rivers. Wine will be supplied by Jed Merchants.

Peruvian cuisine is known for its fusion of historical influences from local populations such as the Incas, and native and traditional food plants such as quinoa, chilli, sweet potatoes, and corn with influences from the colonising and immigrant peoples of Europe, Africa, and Asia. 

‘We’re looking forward to cooking a Peruvian feast with Andres and Franco from A Chefs Pocket as we invite new Latin American flavours, new energy in the kitchen, and new friends to Barrio,’ says Francisco Smoje, who was himself born in Argentina.

Prices will be $10 / $20 plates (meat and vegan-friendly options are available) and $10 for a glass of wine. À la carte menu also available. 

Barrio Eatery & Bar.
1 Porter St, Byron Bay. Tuesday 30 April 6–9pm.

Government fails to support dying with dignity in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.
