Archived: A Taste of Pope Joan at Odettes

Restaurant Month 2016

Presented by:     

Chef-patron of Melbourne’s Pope Joan, Matt Wilkinson, previously of Vue de Monde and Circa the Prince, is a generous chef with a passion for quality seasonal produce, disguising considerable wealth of knowledge and skill with a tremendous knack for not taking anything too seriously.

His first published book was called “Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables” and sold over 100,000 copies worldwide and was translated in 9 languages, so be assured that he really knows his vegetables. Hailing originally from the rolling pastures and industrial jungle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, Matt’s foodie muscles were carved under Michelin-starred chef Martin Wishart before arriving in Australia.

Auckland is in for a treat when he teams up with Odettes’ Josh Kucharik to unveil a preview of the new Pope Joan menu before launching it in his Melbourne restaurant. Matt’s promising a veritable feast with the freshest local produce leading the way.
