About the Chef

Jeffrey Vincent Simonetta is an Australian–Italian Chef who has worked under some of Australia’s most influential chefs. His family background, thick with Italian culture, influenced the way he sees cooking and produce. It taught him that “to be Italian is to be passionate. It is to intimately taste wine, sauce, and ripe olives, as well as appreciating simplicity and nature, from the fragrance of the spring air, the skill of the sculptor, and the soul of the painter. It means to belong to a gene pool influenced by some of the most interesting cultures in history and translate those onto a plate”.
