Welcome to the Young Chefs Dinner presented by Citi! Promoting and nurturing young talent is a Good Food Month legacy and we proudly shine a light on the crème-de-la-crème of Canberra’s bright young things. This year the brief is to go green, so what better way than a plant based  take-over of the newly vegetarian kitchen of Monster Kitchen & Bar – our budding young chefs Kenny Tse (Monster Kitchen & Bar), Ben Waterston (Les Bistronomes) with one more to be announced soon, will curate a stellar plant-based menu under the guidance of acclaimed Michelin-starred Executive Chef, Paul Wilson.

You don’t see a CV like Paul’s in Australia often. He was sous chef at Geranium, Denmark’s three Michelin-starred restaurant, which is currently ranked number five in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Most recently he was executive chef at Orpheus Island Lodge, an exclusive private island resort located in the Great Barrier Reef. Paul’s artful plates are achingly beautiful and his food celebrates locally sourced seasonal ingredients – at Monster, he’s introduced a kitchen garden to grow hyperlocal produce. Paul took the helm of Monster Kitchen & Bar at Ovolo Nishi, Good Food Month’s official hotel partner, announced all its restaurants and bars across Australia and Hong Kong are going vegetarian for 365 days. With plant-based dining on the rise globally, and with such an incredible mentor like Paul, we feel this is the perfect environment for our Young Chefs to learn, and demonstrate, vegetable prowess. 

Ovolo Hotels and Monster Kitchen & Bar are driven by responsibility, sustained by seasonality and inspired by regionality, so they’re proud to support the latest up and coming young chefs in their own personal quest for cooking excellence and produce conservation. Stay tuned as we announce our incredible line up of Young Chefs! Enjoy a three-course menu served with wine and beer, in a venue that epitomises Canberra-cool.
