Matt has a super impressive background, having originally worked in South Australia for Cheong Liew, Simon Bryant and thereafter stints at Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and Capella,at Lord Howe Island.
In 2010, after having travelled extensively through Asia, he and his partner moved to the south coast and open Tallwood in 2013. Tallwood was an outstanding success ranking among the best in the local area. Now 2020, Matt steps out to showcase his latest venture, the highly anticipated Gwylo Restaurant.
Gwylo is an ‘Asian Fusion’ style restaurant with an ever changing menu of ‘punchy Asian street food flavours’.
According to ‘Wikipedia’ “fusion food has become very popular as it offers culinary adventures based on unique and distinctive tastes, to the mainstream culinary culture. Food Fusion is a form of cooking that combines contrasting culinary traditions or techniques into a single dish. In Australia, due to the increasing influx of migrants, fusion cuisine is being reinvented and is becoming increasingly the norm at numerous cafes and restaurants, with Modern Australian Asian-fusion restaurants like Tetsuya’s in Sydney ranking highly in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.”
