The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa has announced that top chef Martin Boetz (pictured) of Longrain Sydney and Melbourne will headline the Delicious Weekend Away, being held over the long weekend in June.

Boetz promises to bring energy and colour to Byron for the three day food and wine celebration.

Born in Germany, his passion for cooking was nurtured by some of the world’s greatest Chefs, including David Thompson (who now owns London’s Michelin starred Nahm) at Darley Street Thai and Sailors Thai.

Martin joins Bangalow-based pastry Chef extraordinaire Katrina Kanetani from hatted restaurant Town (formerly of The Pier and MG Garage Sydney, Asiate New York and Quo Vadis London), Valli Little and The Byron at Byron’s Gavin Hughes (formerly of Aqua Luna, The Bathers Pavilion and Aqua Dining Sydney, Inverlochy Castle Hotel and 1 Devonshire Gardens Scotland).

“There are lots of passionate producers growing fabulous Thai ingredients in the Byron region,” said Martin Boetz, “including turmeric, galangal and betel leaves that we use at Longrain and will celebrate over the course of the weekend.”

The weekend includes a cooking class with Valli Little, lunch at award-winning Newrybar restaurant Harvest, a visit to local farmers markets and a producers farm and a gala four-course dinner at The Byron at Byron Restaurant.

Guests will stay in the Byron at Byron Resort and Spa where they can unwind with yoga or spend time by the infinity pool.
