About the Chef
Head Chef, San Telmo Restaurant
Following a two-year stint as Sous Chef at San Telmo, Stephen’s creativity, attention to detail and passion for Argentinian cuisine earned him the Head Chef position in 2018. Before coming to Melbourne he worked under Zeb Gilbert of Wsabi in Noosa Queensland and then with Sam Steck of Heart Attack & Vine in Carlton upon his move to Victoria. Extensive travels throughout South America further inspired him to share its authentic flavours and cooking techniques, echoing the Argentine ethos that life and love should always be shared over good food and wine. Stephen was nominated for the Time Out’s New Hot Talent award in 2016 and has won the Golden Empanada competition at World Malbec Day two years in a row. He also played an integral role in San Telmo winning the Best Steak Restaurant at the 2015 Restaurant & Catering Awards. More
