Aria chef at Harvest

Executive chef Joel Bickford from Aria

By S Haslam

If you’ve been lucky enough to dine at Aria restaurant in Sydney, you’ll know that they make the most of their killer view of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour with great food, great service and a great wine list.

Executive chef Joel Bickford from Aria will be guest chef at Harvest restaurant in Newrybar on Wednesday, 11 March 2020. Joel describes his Aria style as ‘incorporating nature, using unique and native Australian ingredients’, and he will be joining Harvest head chef Alastair Waddell, and wild food researcher Peter Hardwick, for a one-off menu exploring Australia’s underutilised ingredients. Renowned for his stylish and contemporary cuisine with a nod to native Australia, Joel is looking forward to exploring all that the Northern Rivers has to offer.

‘Growing up in the Blue Mountains, I have always had a strong connection with my environment, the land and its offerings – in turn, shaping my cooking style and thought process in the kitchen. Collaborating with chef Alastair Waddell and wild food researcher Peter Hardwick this March at Harvest Newrybar, I look forward to having the opportunity to bring the taste of Aria to Byron Bay locals’, said Joel.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
