Andrew McConnell // Tuesday August 20
Our Yellow Presents… series brings great chef talent from around Australia into the Yellow kitchen to see what they can do with a vegetable-only menu.
The next guest chef for Yellow Presents… is Melbourne-based chef, restaurateur, cookbook author and columnist Andrew McConnell.
Encompassing some of Melbourne’s most iconic and critically acclaimed establishments, Andrew’s collection includes award-winning restaurants, bars, a pub and two butcher & wine stores. He’ll be taking over the Yellow kitchen on Tuesday 20 August.
Yellow’s Brent Savage kicked off his culinary career under the tutelage of Andrew where he worked at Mrs Jones and Diningroom 211. Brent is “looking forward to being able to work with Andrew again and experience his creative take on an all-vegetarian menu”.
Growing up in Melbourne in a family that was heavily involved in the hospitality industry, Andrew was introduced to growers and producers, the concept of seasonality and respect for ingredients from an early age.
Andrew’s signature identity which is evident throughout his establishments combines elements of fine and casual dining with meticulously sourced ingredients, precise cooking, flexible menus and sharply designed dining spaces.
