Chef Darren Robertson’s keen eye for combining complex flavors, partnered with the simplicity of cooking over fire or hot coals, takes barbequing to a delicious new level. In his new series, Darren is taking a step back from the highly intricate fine dining skills he’s spent years honing to develop a more holistic approach to food that embraces ingredients cooked simply and beautifully over a fire or hot coals. No fancy equipment, no induction stoves or immersion circulators – just fresh ingredients, fire, imagination, and the discovery of what these simple elements can create.

The Backyard BBQ


His food philosophy shifted from the highly worked and intricate fine dining he was trained in, to a more sustainable type of cooking. A holistic approach that embraced the seasons and great ingredients cooked simply and beautifully.

The Urban BBQ


The BBQ is not all about big backyards in the suburbs. Darren shows us how cooking with charcoal and fire can be just as successful in even the smallest of inner city outdoor spaces.



Darren’s on a surfing safari with his mate Aaron Turner from famed restaurant Loam in Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula. The area is also famous for the stretch of coast known as the “Surf Coast” and which includes surfing hot spot Bells Beach.

The Traditional Feast


In this episode, Darren explores the cultural heritage of cooking with fire and coals. He goes to visit his mate Dan Hong – Sydney chef of the year 2014.

BBQ at my Table


When we think of the bbq, we immediately think of cooking outdoors; of naked flames and smoking grills.

The Kitchen Garden


In this episode, Darren hits the highway to visit his mate James, a chef who runs Biota restaurant in Bowral in regional NSW,

Winter BBQ


The Three Blue Ducks Empire has expanded to a seasonal restaurant the boys operate at the snow fields of Falls Creek in Victoria’s alpine region. Surrounded by great produce, the restaurant sources all it’s ingredients from the local area and hauls it up the mountain almost daily.

The Formal BBQ


The bbq meal is synonymous with casual dining and sharing relaxed food with friends. But in this episode, Darren shows us how the humble bbq can be used to create a fine dinig experience for a formal dinner.



Darren is the Victoria’s high country to visit his mate Dave Angellini at his green tea plantation in Tawonga. Dave and his wife Erin started the Japanese green tea farm in 2002

and produce pure, natural wholly local tea.



As a pom, Darren grew up with a white Christmas, and a table laden with the traditional fare, but now in his adopted home of Australia, he enjoys a hot Christmas day with his closest friends.
