YOU’D normally find Chef Josh Burke busy working in the kitchen of the Tea Gardens Hotel.
But last Saturday he was out in the beer garden with a shovel in his hand raking coals.
“I’ve been here since 5am this morning,” Josh told News Of The Area.
Josh, along with hotel owner Ben Hanson, was up with the dawn, organising and cooking the first ever Argentinian Asada (barbecue) at the pub.
On offer, slow roasted, lamb and goat over the fire pit, which proved to be a big hit.
“We were all sold out by early afternoon,” Ben said.
“It was great.”
“We’re going to have to do more lambs and goats next time.”
The weather too was an added bonus, families and groups happy to bask in the sunshine of the beer garden and listen to some live music from the band Wards Xpress during the afternoon.
“It’s definitely going to be a regular event,” Ben said.
