Many chefs taste success. Few change the game. Cheong Liew OAM is one such trailblazer – among the first to introduce Australian diners to the power of fusion cuisine and expand our culinary horizons.

Liew’s first foray into a professional kitchen was an impromptu shift at in The Iliad, an Adelaide Greek restaurant with capacity for 400. It sparked a fascination with food – one that led Liew on to purchase fellow local eatery Neddy’s in 1975. Twenty years later came the opportunity to open The Grange at the Hilton Adelaide, and it was here his creativity reached its full potential. Named among the 10 hottest chefs alive by the US-based Food & Wine magazine, this humble hero lets his dishes do the talking. Now – exclusively for Tasting Australia – he will be back at the pass for a four-course meal also set to feature Louis Tikaram, Amy Hamilton, Adam Liston and Chui Lee Luk.

The Brisbane-based Tikaram returned to Australia after a celebrated stint at Los Angeles hotspot E.P. and L.P. His dishes – influenced by Fijian, Indian, Chinese, Irish and Scottish family heritage – have also featured in restaurants including Longrain, Bentley and Tetsuya’s.

Hamilton is the owner of Liberté, an award-winning restaurant and bar in the West Australian city of Albany. The venue dates back to 1852 and has been transformed into one of the nation’s hottest places to dine, with a Vietnamese-inspired menu that ranges from dumplings to profiteroles.

South Australia’s Liston is the chef and part-owner of four Adelaide ventures: Shobosho, Sho, ShoSho and Shomen Ramen. Japanese cuisine remains his muse, with smoke, steam and fire used to impart dazzling flavour.

Former head chef at Sydney’s iconic Claude’s and celebrated author, Singapore-born Chui Lee Luk joins this all-star line-up. Known for her distinctive approach to food, Lee Luk seamlessly fuses French technique with Asian flavours.

This Town Square Kitchen experience also features paired beverages and promises to be one of the year’s most exciting collaborations.
