You would think two thriving restaurants in food obsessed Melbourne would be enough for an accomplished Chef! But not Gary Mehigan.
Gary is a judge & co-host of Channel Ten's hugely successful MasterChef Australia series. The show has broken ratings records in Australia and is now airing worldwide.
His career started back in the UK, where he worked for some of Europe’s most respected Chefs. Although he is classically trained, Gary has a real love for produce and prefers not to over complicate things. The Boathouse was a collaboration between he and partner Steve Bogdani with a vision to share lifes simple pleasures done really well.
Gary has also released three books...His first in 2010, Comfort Food followed by Your Place or Mine with George Calombaris and mostly recently, Cook with Us.
Prior to MasterChef, Gary had a budding TV career, with roles on 9am with David & Kim, Boys Weekend which airs worldwide in over 100 countries and Good Chef, Bad Chef which is now in its second series.
Gary did his apprenticeship and spent his formative years of cooking in London, where his passion for food intensified. Not only was it London, but the Connaught and the Souffle, two of the most elite dining rooms in the UK, at the time.
