Chief Cook Phil Whitmarsh is a loveable rogue who fits like a hand into a glove into what we are doing at the Daniel O'Connell where he cooks the food he grew up on, the food he loves to eat and does it in his own way - keeping it real.
Don't be fooled by the humble yet gruff exterior (you would be grumpy too if you followed Arsenal and English sport), the journey that Phil has travelled to this point of his life has given him the knowledge, skills and passion to run a kitchen that is second to none. Trained in some of the most notable kitchens of London and Paris, experiencing what it takes to earn Michelin Hats and now calling Adelaide home, he brings a unique blend of global understanding and passion for the local produce available to him.
One of Phil's memorable moments in life was to hold the ladder for Fergus Henderson when he was dining at St John and he is a great believer in the philosophies of Fergus and other globally like minded Chefs who are committed to respecting the beast that has given its life for the table.
His plan at our place is to be ....
Creating exciting menus that keep cooking real, safeguard the journey from paddock to plate and follow a nose to tail philosophy – showing respect for the animal that has given its life for the table by utilising the skills of the team to serve portions of the whole beast. Menu's will be a selection of the best prime cuts and the most delicious secondary cuts.
Supporting and Showing off the quality of local produce by carefully sourcing locally farmed and foraged ingredients - working with farmers and suppliers to get the most interesting breeds of beef, pork and fish.
Taking a hands on approach to what Guests are served – the team make absolutely everything they can inhouse.
Making the experience a complete gastro event – where the finest food and beverage is seamlessly partnered in a relaxed environment.
Coming soon ...
