Simon Bryant


I'm a chef, no longer the exec chef at Hilton Adelaide which was home for around 10 years, but I'm still rattling pots and pans around. I guess my day job is creative director for the longest running national food festival in Australia; Tasting Australia.

I'm a sometime television presenter (with that force of nature and all round good food, Barossa girl Maggie Beer) on the ABC's "The Cook and The Chef". We knocked out over a 150 episodes of the series and I have hung my clogs up from TV for a while.

My dedication and enthusiasm enable me to effectively motivate, manage, train and mentor junior chefs, as evidenced by my extensive history in senior managerial positions.



I’m a cook. I’m a 2014 My Kitchen Rules champion. I’m a proud South Australian. I’m a bespoke caterer. I’m an artisan ketchup craftswoman. I’m a published writer and recipe developer. I’m a sometimes blogger. I’m an extroverted entertainer. I’m a public speaker and spokesperson.

I’m a charity ambassador for Bone Health Foundation and The Longest Table, I’m a state brand ambassador for Brand South Australia, I’m a universal ambassador for all things tasty and awesome…
