In the latest Episode of The Hungry Gardener Podcast I met with Head Chef, Blayne Bertoncello of OMY Restaurant in Beaconsfield, Victoria.
Together with his brother Chase, they have built an incredible reputation for creative, inspired and truly seasonal fare that has to be experienced to be believed.

They operate with a sustainable and minimal waste philosophy, and grow almost all of the restaurant produce on a nearby property, including hops for home-made beer and honey from their own bees.

I visited the farm and spoke to Blayne as he took me on a tour of the incredible operation that requires a team of dedicated employees and service staff to manage. It is a truly amazing, 7 days a week undertaking, with the restaurant receiving high accolades across the industry including a prestigious Two Hat's for culinary excellence by the Good Food Guide.

We are in awe of the dedication, passion and long-term vision that it takes to run a restaurant like this.

Please enjoy this episode with Blayne Bertoncello of OMY
