If you haven’t been lucky enough to devour his life-changing sourdough, then you may have heard of Paulie as one-third of one the hottest artisan bakeries in the country, The Bread Social on The Farm in Byron Bay. We catch up with Paulie to get his baking hacks and how to perfect pizza dough.
Unless you’re from Byron Bay, you may not have heard of Rob but his humble stall- The Nomadic Kitchen- at the Byron farmer’s markets is an institution, and the go-to breakfast for every visiting chef and food-loving locals in the know, including Fleet’s Josh and Astrid. We caught up with the River Cafe trained chef to find out what inspires his rustic Sicilian menu, why he makes everything from scratch, his hot tips for where to eat in Byron…and the secret recipe to the family passata.
Fleet is one of the most exciting restaurants to open in regional Australia- or infact anywhere- in years and is responsible for putting the sleepy coastal town of Brunswicks Heads on the map. Chef Josh Lewis and Sommelier/Front of house superstar Astrid McCormack have gained high praise from critics, diners, and industry heavy weights for essentially mastering every detail of their tiny 14-seater. They share what it’s like to be partners in business and life and take us to the incredible Byron Bay producer that inspires them. We also put the Monday Morning Cooking Club’s Lisa Goldberg under The Pass Grill to get her insider guide on where to go for Jewish food from the softest challah to tastiest felafel- this is one list you don’t want want to miss.
