Matt Wilkinson's Story
The oh-so-dapper Matt Wilkinson, saucy chef and co-owner of Melbourne eatery Pope Joan is gastronomic to the bone. Matt takes a seasonal-driven approach to food, which he’ll be showcasing in his brand new book, Mr Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads, out March 2015.
“I build my dishes around vegetables in season because this is when they will be the cheapest, most readily available and, most importantly, taste the best.”
With a thriving vegie garden and two hooligans, Finn and Jay, to wrangle, Matt’s shenanigans these days are mostly confined to Melbourne, Australia. Don’t let this lull you into a false sense of security though: he travels. A lot.
