With a well-travelled background and a passion for locally grown produce, Andrew Saxon has been appointed Head Chef at WineCo Restaurant not so long ago. Andrew returned to our restaurant after spending the previous 17 years abroad working as Head Chef in a number of iconic restaurants in London and Australia.
In his early years as an emerging chef, Andrew spent time at Vinnie's Restaurant under the guidance of David Griffiths before taking over as Head Chef at the acclaimed `Paramount`. Andrew then decided to cross the Tasman to explore the wine scene stepping into the Head Chef role at the well-regarded Australian Winery. Not ready to stop there, Andrew then took his culinary skills to London where he continued to expand his repertoire. It was Andrew`s return to our country that offered a highly rewarding venture in his career, opening Food & Wine Restaurant in our city, with its further introduction in other states. Andrew, together with his wife Alice, owned and operated the restaurant for 5 years picking up a number of accolades and reviews.
