Tassie Summer BBQ Series For Hobart’s In The Hanging Garden

December 11, 2020 Events Calendar No Comments

Hobart’s biggest backyard, In The Hanging Garden, announces a five-day Tasmanian Summer BBQ series, featuring an exciting rotating mix of local chefs and producers who will deliver their spin on the summertime barbecue tradition.

“Hobart is so fortunate to have our lush Cathedral space in the city centre, and this month we’re excited to launch a five-day-long Tassie Summer barbecue series,” In The Hanging Garden food curator Jo Cook said.

“Our talented guest chefs carry credentials from celebrated businesses like Garagistes, Fat Pig Farm, Rough Rice, and Urban Bounty, so we’re looking forward to the adventurous and quality offerings they will bring to our big backyard barbecue.”

Head to the Cathedral to sample a new BBQ creation each day, or enjoy In The Hanging Garden’s regular kitchen offerings, including cheesy treats from Bruny Island Cheese and Co. and pan-Asian cuisine from Oryza.

Boxing Day BBQ: Saturday 26 December

Head to the Cathedral for the first day of the Tasmanian Summer BBQ series on Boxing Day, for traditional summer barbecue fare and some special surprises from Boxing Day’s yet-to-be-revealed guest chef.

Luke Burgess (Garagistes co-founder): Sunday 27 December

Luke Burgess has an abundance of culinary experiences under his belt, as owner-chef of Hobart institution Garagistes, a Noma stage alumnus and tutor at Tassie’s celebrated Agrarian Kitchen. Since closing Garagistes in 2015, Burgess has cooked in eight different countries and co-wrote a guidebook called Only in Tokyo, with Melbourne chef Michael Ryan (The Provenance).

For the Tasmanian Summer BBQ on Sunday 27 December, Burgess has prepared a kilometre of broad beans ready for harvest—and ready to turn into fresh falafel, paired with young garlic toum and barbecued pita bread.

Double Bangers (Megan Quill + Thea Webb): Monday 28 December

Megan Quill is the Taste of Tasmania food curator and Migrant Resource Centre food manager. For In The Hanging Garden, she has teamed up with Thea Webb, founder of Harvest Feast and butcher at Fat Pig Farm, to create Double Bangers (two sausages in a bun).

Special Double Bangers for the Tasmanian Summer BBQ on Monday 28 December will include Middle Eastern-style wallaby and lamb merguez with sumac pickled red onions, red pepper and herb salsa; or Georgian-style pork and fennel sausage served with cabbage kraut, creamy mustard, crispy shallots, and tkemali plum sauce.

Urban Bounty (Nick Cummins): Tuesday 29 December

Urban Bounty is a local and much-loved catering and providore business that delivers a delectable drawcard each week at Hobart’s Farm Gate Market, as well as Street Eats @ Franko, and the seasonal MoMa Market at the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona).

Urban Bounty will be joining the Tasmanian Summer BBQ crew on Tuesday 29 December, plating up lamb ribs with quince & Willie Smith’s Bone Dry Cider BBQ sauce and slaw.

Rough Rice (Adam James): Wednesday 30 December

Adam James is a wildman of Aussie fermentation and founder of Rough Rice, where he brings his worldly ferment research from all corners of the globe together—including Denmark, Italy, France, Georgia, China, South Korea and Japan—as well as teaching at the Agrarian Kitchen.

Joining the Tasmanian Summer BBQ on Wednesday 30 December, Rough Rice will bring a Georgian-style charcoal-grilled pork mtsvadi to the table, served with walnut and herb pilaf, fermented pickles and tarragon, and chilli and pomegranate sauce.


Every good barbecue deserves good music, and so each day of the Tasmanian Summer BBQ series will feature local artists performing on the Cathedral stage. Across the five BBQ days, performances will include acoustic duo The Foley Artists, contemporary jazz quartet The Moonshine Collective, ex-Nashville now-local Americana muso Ross Sermons, groove six-piece Little Island, banjo and fiddle duo The Wolfe & Thorne, electric banjo ska band Black Swans of Trespass, acoustic guitar master and viral sensation Alan Gogoll, and spicy Australian swing outfit the Cope Street Duo.
