Dinner at Our House - with James Viles

Head Chef of Biota Dining & Rooms, NSW's most awarded regional restaurant

Fresh from the two hatted Biota Dining & Rooms in regional NSW, chef and director James Viles will step into the kitchen at our House for a one-off dinner.

The celebrated young chef opened Biota in 2011 with a vision of supporting local producers and growers. The restaurant was awarded a covet Chef’s Hat in its first year and has since gone on to become one of NSW most awarded regional restaurants. His approach is technique driven with a close affinity with nature, incorporating seasonal botanicals and drawing on the local landscape for inspiration.

This is part of our sustainable dinner series at the House of Food and Wine - Hotel. Working under the ethos of the global ZeroFoodprint movement, each night our chefs-in-residence Matt Stone & Jo Barrett (Oakridge Wines, Coldstream) will collaborate with some of the world’s leading chefs to bring the dinner menu to life – sourcing local ingredients and taking steps to reduce their carbon impact.
