Peter Gilmore is the executive chef at two of Australia’s most exciting and dynamic restaurants, Bennelong at the Sydney Opera House and Quay Restaurant across The Harbour in The Rocks. Born and bred in Sydney, Peter was inspired to cook at a young age and started his apprenticeship at 16. He then spent his twenties working in kitchens overseas and in country New South Wales developing his own style.
He is now one of the most awarded chefs in Australia, most recently crowned Citi Chef of the Year at the 2019 Good Food Guide Awards.
Since Gilmore has been at the helm of Quay since 2001, it has been awarded three chef’s hats for an unprecedented 17 consecutive years. Quay has been named Restaurant of the Year six times in the Good Food Guide. Internationally, Quay has been listed for five years on the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list – and held the title of Best Restaurant in Australasia for three of those years.
