Television celebrity chef, Darren Robertson, is promising to share his culinary secrets with thousands of foodies when they converge on Bankstown for the annual
Bites Food Festival.
Robertson, who owns restaurants in North Bondi, Rosebery, Bronte and Byron Bay, including the award-winning Three Blue Ducks, will take centre stage in the main kitchen at Bankstown Bites on Saturday 29 July.
"I enjoy getting out of the kitchen just as much as I enjoy being in the kitchen," Mr Robertson said.
Bankstown is just up the road and has a really strong food scene.
"For me, I love the diversity of the place. There are so many great food offerings from all around the world."
2017 has been a big year for Mr Robertson. Two years after
Three Blue Ducks was judged as Australia’s best regional restaurant by
Gourmet Traveler, he joined
Channel 7 My Kitchen Rules judge, Colin Fassnidge, at the dinner table when the show’s amateur cooks started their ‘instant restaurants’.
However, the signature white t-shirt wearing chef is no stranger to television, having previously co-hosted Channel 10’s, Recipe to Riches, and is the star of Charcoal Kitchen, on Life Style Food.
For those who have dined at any one of Mr Robertson’s restaurants, they know his dishes are packed with flavour and freshness, whether it be his Spicy Bourbon Pork, or Barbecued Whole Fish with Lemongrass and Lime Leaves.
"I like food with punch, fresh flavours with citrus and spices, and food that’s super tasty," he said.
Mr Robertson plans to strive for simple culinary perfection at this year’s Bites, with his Occy, Citrus and Grains recipe, that includes blood sausage, apples, beets and herbs.
