Talent: Craig Will (Stillwater) | Venue: Riverside Kitchen | Price: $110
Become a BBQ boss, a crackerjack with charcoal and a five-star flame master in this up close and personal experience with Stillwater’s Craig Will. You’ll learn the smoky art of cooking over charcoal to produce the best BBQ you’ve ever tasted, using nothing more than fire and local produce. Craig will walk you through his techniques for creating delicious dishes every time from the best cuts, grilling vegetables, what wood works well for creating charcoal and what else you can cook over a grill, even dessert.
Craig Will is the executive chef and co-owner of Stillwater in Launceston. “I developed an interest in cooking early on,” says Craig. “We had a large veggie and fruit garden and a massive walnut tree in our backyard provided the nuts for my great grandmother’s prize walnut cake recipe, one I still use to this day.” He focuses on using local produce to create dishes he describes as “crowd-pleasing” at both Stillwater and its sister restaurant Black Cow Bistro.
