About Me : Wealth of experience and wisdom was invaluable to last year’s contestants, his considered questioning at the kitchen benches often putting them “through the ringer”.

Gary has been a chef for 30 years and knows a thing or two about running a restaurant. His natural leadership qualities command attention but more than that he is a great teacher with a soft heart. Now in season six, once again he is set to put the next batch of the countries aspiring amateur hopefuls through their paces.


Gary trained in London at The Connnaught Hotel and Le Souffle at The InterContinental, under two of London's luminaries of the time, Michel Bourdan and Peter Kromberg. He moved to Melbourne in 1991 and has headed some of the city’s most prominent restaurants, including Burnham Beeches Country House, Browns Restaurant, Hotel Sofitel and his own restaurants Fenix, which he opened in 2000, and the Maribyrnong Boathouse in 2005. Gary has since formed a catering company Big Kitchen Events, which is a VRC certified caterer, and opened a second cafe – 64 Sutton Street – in North Melbourne.
