Sophie Schiliro – Contentious Character

At just 19 years old Sophie Schiliro is already making a name for herself as a rising culinary star in Australia and beyond. Her energy and dedication gained her numerous awards and accolades all prior to her 18th birthday, including a silver Medal at the National Apprentice of the year competition and winning silver at the 2018 Nestle Golden Chefs Hat competition.

Working at the notable Orana in Adelaide, National Press Club in Canberra and the Majura Truffle Farm, she is certainly a young chef to watch. Sophie just completed 4 months of training at Azurmendi in Spain, the 14th rated restaurant in the world, before returning to the kitchen at the contemporary ACT vineyard, Contentious Character.
