Recipe for success at Matteo's

Matteo’s executive head chef and Angliss graduate ‘Buddha’ Lo will head to the Big Apple to work at the world’s best restaurant Eleven Madison Park, while Matteo’s  apprentices Jaymz Harris and Stephen Fawcett have won national culinary competitions over the last few weeks.

Jaymz Harris won the 2017 AUSTAFE Culinary Trophy in Hobart, with a silver medal, the highest medal awarded and was also selected as best apprentice overall against seven competitors from around Australia.

Stephen Fawcett was runner-up in the 2017 Shared Tables Thierry Marx Career Development Award.

This unique award normally provides one Victorian apprentice chef the opportunity to work in the great culinary city of Paris, France. However in 2017 as Stephen finished only one point behind the winner and the judges’ made the unprecedented decision to offer another trip.

Stephen will work in Paris with Thierry Marx at Mandarin Oriental Hotel for three weeks.

Both apprentices are studying the Certificate III in commercial cookery at William Angliss Institute.

Both Jaymz and Stephen are working under the guidance of ‘Buddha’ Lo who completed his apprenticeship under Brendan McQueen at Matteo’s and was awarded the 2015 Gordon Ramsay Excellence Award, competing against five other Gordon Ramsay employees at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London.

Restaurant owner Matteo Pignatelli also graduated from William Angliss Institute with a Diploma of Business in Hospitality Management in 1989 and went on to open Matteo’s in North Fitzroy in 1994.
