Peter Gilmore is executive chef of Quay restaurant in Sydney. His award winning restaurant have recently been titled the top 27th restaurant in the world and having said that it has been labelled restaurant of the year as well as having three chef hats stuck on it. I was very lucky and privileged to be joined by Peter Gilmore for an interview.
“I left year 10 to do my apprenticeship in 1984.” Peter explained. “I actually got the job there because I did work experience from school, the chef then recognized that I was passionate.” Three years through his apprenticeship, Peter headed off to the UK to work in premium hotels and country house hotels before heading back home. In August 2001, Quay was lucky to have their new executive chef, Peter Gilmore to join to restaurant team.
