Chef Thi Le (Photo supplied).

Celebrated chef Thi Le (named Gourmet Traveller’s first ever female Chef of the Year in the 2022 awards) will be joining executive chef Santiago Socrate on the grills at Barrio Eatery & Bar, as part of the Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival, on Thursday 10 November.

Chef Thi Le says, ‘I’m looking forward to joining chef Santiago Socrate and his team at Barrio. I hope to share a mix of my two favourite cuisines (Vietnamese and Laotian) both representing my restaurants Anchovy in Melbourne, and newly launched Laotian restaurant Jeow, with the Caper festival-goers.’

Expect a bright, bold take on Southeast Asian flavours, expressing traditions with a modern Australian accent. There will be two sittings, at 5pm and 7.30pm.

All dishes will be subject to local produce available at the time of the event, but as a taster you can expect mouth-watering examples such as Spanish mackerel fish cake in lemongrass; Smoked cobia salad with eggplant and herbed sticky rice; Laap dip with smoked raw beef and tripe; Stuffed suckling pig; and Coconut sorbet with longan, ginger, and rice-wine lees.

The entire menu will be gluten free but, owing to the nature of the cuisine, there is a fair amount fish paste and shrimp paste used, therefore strict vegetarians and vegans might want to sit this one out.
