The Melbourne Brit-pack reunion

Australian Gourmet Traveller

They became known as the Brit-pack, a group of young, confident, classically trained British chefs who bought complex technique, fun and black pudding to Melbourne’s dining rooms in the ’90s.

Melbourne diners hadn’t seen anything like it. When a gang of brash, fresh-faced, classically trained British chefs arrived on the restaurant scene in the mid-1990s they changed the city’s culinary landscape forever. Thanks to the Brit-pack, as they became known, Melbourne’s kitchens were suddenly awash with truffles, foie gras and black pudding, and meticulous, labour-intensive sauces were the order of the day. Fine French technique in the kitchen met minimalist décor in the dining room in a package that scorned the frilly old-school formality that had been the hallmark of Melbourne’s fine-dining scene.

We’re talking about Donovan Cooke at Est Est Est, Jeremy Strode at Pomme, Michael Lambie at Circa, and the threesome of Martin Webb, Paul Wilson and Paul Raynor at the Terence Conran-led revamp of The Brasserie at Georges, along with Raymond Capaldi, Steve Szabo and Ian Curley, who preceded their arrival.
