Gary Johnson
An award winning internationally recognised Chef with over 40 years of culinary experience and leadership in restaurants, pubs and hotels from several different countries. In 2011, I was awarded the NSW Hotel Association “Chef of the Year” and then the Australian Hotel Association (AHA) “National Chef of the Year”. In 2019, I was recognised by the Australian Culinary Federation as an Honorary Life Member.

My culinary philosophy is focused on regional Australian produce and “simple excellence” in the kitchen.
I believe that locally sourced, good-quality and sustainable produce is best served fresh; yet skilfully prepared to enhance its natural flavour and presentation.

My collaborative management style enables me to create and share, a clear and inspiring vision of where we are leading the business in food. Through honest communication building trust with my teams; they realise how important their roles are in bringing this vision to life! “people + product + passion = profit”
