Back by popular demand, Argentine Chef Dante Moren returns to Black Barn Bistro where he will be cooking an open fire (Asado) Sunday lunch. The entire feast will be cooked outside over open wood fire which will start with shared canapes followed by locally sourced Vegetables, Fish, Lamb, Pork, Beef & dessert. Everything will be served family-style spread over several big long tables. Fine wines will be available for purchase.
Argentine Chef Dante Moren cooked professionally in Argentina and Uruguay specialising in outdoor open fire cooking for 13 years. This included a 3 year stint at the high end hunting lodge ‘Hayes and Hayes outfitters’ in Central Argentina. He then decided to move to New Zealand and bring his passion of traditional open fire outdoor cooking called ‘Asado’. Dante then developed a strong connection with the New Zealand wilderness and began going on hunting expeditions with local hunters. Dante started adapting and developing his technique to suit New Zealand’s wild animals, firewood and climate. One of his recent projects was cooking for 1500 festival-goers at New Zealand’s regional Burning Man event, ‘Kiwiburn’ in Hunterville.
