Book for an event


Simon Bryant began his cooking career working in Thai and Indian restaurants in Melbourne. In 1995, he joined the ranks of the Hilton Adelaide's kitchen brigade, where he worked for a time at Cheong Liew's celebrated Grange restaurant before becoming Executive Chef of Hilton Adelaide in 2001.

From 2006 to 2009, Simon co-hosted four series and 152 episodes of the ABC's immensely popular TV series The Cook and The Chef, alongside food icon Maggie Beer.

Moving on from the Hilton Adelaide in 2009, Simon is currently an ambassador for Animals Asia, pens magazine articles on ethical food production and maintains an active interest in issues surrounding animal welfare practices. He is also a semi-competent gardener and committed vegie eater.
