Living Room to Campsie Festival

Living Room to Campsie Festival Renowned international Chef, Miguel Maestre, is out of The Living Room for this year’s Campsie Food Festival. No  

​Renowned international Chef, Miguel Maestre, is out of The Living Room for this year’s Campsie Food Festival.

The maestro of Spanish food will headline the Festival in Beamish Street on Saturday 12 May, from 10am-4pm.

Miguel, who featured at Bankstown Bites in 2010, said he couldn’t wait to get back to "one of the most interesting places" he’s visited.

"As soon as I parked my car I could tell everyone was so friendly and wanted to be involved in learning how to cook Spanish food," Miguel said.

"I felt like they knew me and I knew them straight away, and I was cooking for friends and family. The energy was really amazing. I’m very happy to be coming back."

One thing Miguel remembers fondly is the appreciation visitors at Bites had for food.

"It was nice to see how food brought everyone together. It didn’t matter what culture they were from, they were all there to enjoy different food. It will be nice to come back to that atmosphere again at the Campsie Food Festival," Miguel said.

The Living Room co-host said he was ready to sizzle on stage.

"I’ll be cooking a variety of things, but I can’t come to Campsie without cooking my most famous dish, paella. It’s my family recipe and really defines where I come from," Miguel said, who was born in Murcia in the South of Spain.

"If you want to know a few tips on how to master the paella, the secret is in the pan and in the cooking of the rice.

"First you need a proper paella pan to create a crust in the bottom of the pan. By reducing the stock and cooking the rice a little further the flavour infuses throughout the dish."

Mayor Khal Asfour said he was looking forward to tasting authentic Spanish cuisine.

"When it comes to Spanish food, Miguel is one of the best. I’m thrilled we get to invite him back to our area," Mayor Asfour said.

"People come far and wide to try a little bit of everything at our festival because they know we offer traditional dishes and cooking demonstrations from around the world.
