Meet our Head Chef, Santiago Fernandez
Head Chef Santi has continued our long term philosophy of showcasing the best of Margaret River produce, either sourced from our kitchen garden or local suppliers.
“I would like to create food based in the region – with wine, we talk of terroir, or the place it comes from. I want to create food du terroir. Using produce that is seasonal, ethically sourced, such as sustainable seafood, and organic when possible. Margaret River’s fine wines are renowned across the world and the region also offers plenty of quality produce, which is always a great source of inspiration for chefs and cooks.”
“I want to work with the winemakers and Claire (our Sommelier) to match our wines in the best way possible with contemporary cooking style and techniques.”
