Chris Roberts is adding fire to the food scene. Turns out, a lot like it hot.
Sparks have been flying on Wales' coastline thanks to local legend Chris and his epic feasts. Sexy sirloins, cracking lobsters, wild 'shrooms... you name it, he's flamed it.
When it comes to creating next-level dishes, his ethos is pretty simple: keep the rules relaxed, the flavours big, and those sweet fires burning.

THE ORIGIN STORY
Stop, relax, and transport your mind to a medieval castle town in north Wales...
Picture this: Glittering views of the oyster-filled Menai Strait; the humbling presence of Snowdonia’s shadowy peaks and epic woodlands; cobbled streets dotted with filthy-gorgeous kebab shops, and a gentle breeze that seems to carry the voices of a thousand rowdy ancestors (‘iawwwnnnn coooont…’, they whisper). You’ve mentally landed in Caernarfon - welcome to Chris Roberts’ home.
Since 1985, Chris has lived, breathed and loved his local area. It’s the driving force behind everything he enjoys, from his community work to adventures with foraging sidekick, Roxy the dog, and chill time with his favourite ‘Cofis’ (it’s Welsh, look it up). Most of all, it fuels his passion for smokin’ hot feasts.

... SEND THIS WAY
I'm a big fan of what Chris does - his ethos is pretty similar to mine. The passion is real!
I follow Chris wherever he goes - a world rovin’, food lovin’ pied piper!
He's been Asado Chris to me since I first tasted his truly heavenly lamb on a sunny day in Caernarfon Castle... it's the ultimate in grilling, and so is he.
