Taking a break from their fast-paced delivery service atmosphere for an afternoon, the team at Alpha Fresh are bringing it down low and slow with their first BBQ Driveway Cookout.
Hosting the mini barbeque festival this Saturday 3 February from 11am-4pm at their headquarters in Hume, where the aromas of Aussie-American BBQ meats will fill the air, joining them will be an array of food trucks, live music and family-friendly entertainment.
A feast for all the senses, the festival will feature BBQ meats, a sausage sizzle, seafood plates, beer, market stalls, dessert, a jumping castle, face painting and live performers.
“It’s like your casual driveway cookout amped up, with a range of mouth-watering food options and entertainment for everyone,” says Co-director of Alpha Fresh, Frank Iannelli.
Leading the carnivore lineup will be barbeque meat expert and multi-award-winning guru, Scott Masters of Smoke Masters BBQ. Renowned for his American cooking style with a signature Aussie twist, Masters and his team will be on-site cooking some of their favourite recipes.
“We’ve been using Alpha for years and they supply all the proteins we cook in BBQ competitions and for catering. Alongside our friend Jesse Field of Smoked & Co, we’ll be cooking Brisket and Pulled Pork Burgers, among some of our other faves, and we can’t wait,” says Masters.
For those eager to master the art of low and slow BBQ at home, competitive barbeque pro Matt Treloar of Blue Dog BBQ will be running cooking demonstrations where he’ll share his tips and tricks at 12pm and 2pm.
Alongside the BBQ meat experts, local favourites like Nonna Maria’s Pasta, Palacinke Delicious Crepes, Meaty Mate Biltong, Kombi Keg, Canberra Distillery, Blondiez & Browniez and Dough It Yourself will be sharing their specialities.
“We’re turning up the heat by showcasing the best of local producers and produce in a way that’s never been done before. This event is a celebration of our local roots and a nod to our wonderful community,” says Iannelli.
With plans to make the festival an annual event, Alpha’s BBQ Driveaway Cookout promises a day of succulent, tasty meats, culinary delights and plenty of family fun, so bring your appetite!
