2008 Best on the Best: Peter Gilmore, chef, Quay, Sydney
Kitchenware supplier Accoutrement (611 Military Rd, Mosman, NSW, 02 9969 1031). Sue Jenkins is a legend.
Café Alimentari (2 Hopetoun St, Paddington, NSW, 02 9358 2142). My tailor Matthew Lawrence has his store in William Street, and whenever I go there I always get a coffee at Alimentari. It’s a small cafe with great coffee and an authentic, continental feel.
Bottle shop Ultimo Wine Centre (99 Jones St, Ultimo, NSW, 02 9211 2380) in Jones street.
Winery Dalwhinnie at Moonambel, Victoria, and Stefano Lubiano in Tasmania. Both cool-climate vineyards make exceptional wine that is food-focused.
Food shop It’s hard to go past Simon Johnson's original store at Pyrmont (181 Harris St, Pyrmont, NSW, 02 9552 2522), and I love a good produce market.
