Australia has established itself as one of the culinary capitals of the world, and with such a title comes some pretty spectacular chefs. To celebrate the growing talent in Australia we have put together a list of seven of Australia’s rising stars.
Back in 2014 while working as head chef of Stokehouse, Oliver Gould was named Young Chef of the Year at The Age Good Food Guide Awards, appearing on a series of MasterChef Australia the same year. Since then, the chef has gone from strength to strength, taking on projects including a pop-up and various appearances at food festivals before becoming head chef of The Shorehouse in Perth. Most recently, Gould decided to return to Melbourne to head up the kitchen of the new Argentinian steakhouse Palermo (the restaurant opened at the end of 2017) where meat is roasted Asado-style over fire. Sample the chef’s cooking by trying dishes like charcoal grill pasture fed lamb rump spiced with coriander and chipotle at the brand new dining spot.
