Tasting Australia Special Guest 2016 - Robin Wickens

Robin Wickens

Hero of regional dining

As a hero of regional dining, Robin Wickens champions the idea that the best food is often found at the source. 

Robin’s approach to fine dining in the regions at the iconic Victorian restaurant, the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld, is touted as best practice in the field of food tourism and is being replicated country-wide. He won two hats in The Age Good Food Guide in 2015 through creating a menu inspired by produce harvested from the hotel’s organic kitchen garden, orchards and olive groves. Robin has collected many accolades in Australia, including The Age Good Food Guide 2004 Young Chef of the Year, Australian Gourmet Traveller’s 2005 Best New Talent and two hats at his Melbourne restaurant, Interlude.
