Bethany Finn is widely recognised as a pioneer, award-winning chef and leader in the Australian hospitality industry. At the tender age of 27, Bethany was anointed as Australia’s first female Executive Chef at the Hilton Hotel. Bethany went on to build an enviable team at the Hilton, including the world-renowned Cheong Liew.
Bethany’s success continued as she joined her husband to open the multi-award-winning Urban Bistro, where she continued to wow Adelaide locals and visitors alike for 11 years.
From there, Bethany was tasked to create a boutique dining experience at one of Adelaide’s newest hotels – The Mayfair – where she created a dining concept and team from scratch, again going on to receive accolades from her peers and the public alike.
Bethany’s latest adventure has seen her take a bold step into the aged care industry. Her role as Executive Chef in Residents with industry innovators, Life Care, sees her overseeing the kitchen of new, boutique Assisted Living apartments, Gaynes Park Suites in Joslin, while also guiding the dining experience across five residential care homes. Bethany sees this latest move as her way of giving back to a public who have generously supported her over the years.
