Andrew McConnell, Cutler & Co.,
This award is peer-voted: we ask chefs from the Top 100
restaurants in the previous edition of the Restaurant Guide to name
the Australian chef they most respect. This year, it was Andrew
McConnell, chef and co-owner of Melbourne's Cutler & Co.,
Cumulus Inc., Golden Fields and Builders Arms who topped the list.
With a clutch of the nation's best restaurants to his name, not to
mention a reputation for hard work, professionalism and innovation,
it's not hard to see why.
