New restaurants are commonplace, and many rely on an expert team to create a dining space and menu that will inspire multiple visits.

Interview with Massimo Mele, Executive Chef of G&M 2018 New Restaurant of the Year
When Peppers Silo Hotel engaged Executive Chef Massimo Mele to set and implement the vision for their signature restaurant at their spectacular new resort in Launceston, and he began discovering and forging relationships with the pick of the local producers in Tasmania that would primarily drive the seasonal menu, winning best new restaurant in Australia would have been the furthest thing from their minds. However, once they assembled the team led by Head Chef Peter Twitchett, the sound philosophy that underpinned every plate of food made both the wildest of dreams and this incredible team achievement become a reality.
