Amazing that ChillaxBBQ has been going for a year. So in honour of that I think we should have some mates over. Originally scheduled to be a Tahi food cook-off with my mate James and his wife, but sadly wifey was sick, so this became ChillaxBBQ CNY & 1st Birthday. I think it went very well, lots of happy campers all saying how good the food was. So ChillaxBBQ was happy too, to share our food and fun on our birthday.
Thank you to everyone for coming.
Thank you to wifey and BeBe for helping service. Thank you to Ollie for being official photographer. Thank you to my partner in crime, Ruthers, for getting in the tools despite it being a ‘day off’. Cracking BBQ. Let’s have a look at how it went.

Our new dish – streaky bacon and lychee poppers with cracked black pepper – OMG amazing.
Skillet tomatoes with coriander, pink peppercorns and garlic.
Sea Bass with dill and lemon.
Iberico pork, with brown mushrooms.
Wood smoked Wagyu steaks – oh yes!
Here’s that wood smoked Wagyu – a little truffle salt too. Bloody hell, this was sooooo good!
Yuzu scallops in the shell.
BBQ’d scallops with caviar.
Yep we had to have it. Three cheese fondue with thyme, chilli and mushrooms. BOOM!
A wee lobster with butter garlic, saffron and caviar. Not bad right!
Alternative saussies, pork and apple – simply sublime.
6″ deep tomahawk. 3 hours reverse searing at 90 degrees and then char the tits off it. Holy crap, amazing!
I think everyone was happy!

And what better thing to have with it, than roasted bone marrow. Holy cow this was so so good.
And here is that steak. A perfect medium rare. A little sea salt and cracked black pepper and BOOM. Damn this was so so good. Like SOOOOOO good. Even if I say so myself.
