Executive Chef

Aidan Gallagher

Balgownie Estate Yarra Valley’s Executive Chef Aidan Gallagher is no stranger to leadership. Aidan’s 25 years of culinary experience includes multiple five-star hotels all around the world – including The Merrion Hotel in Dublin, award-winning Irish pub McGettigan’s in Dubai, and since moving to Australia, Executive Chef at Flowerdale Estate and acre farm & eatery in Burwood East.

“I have experience working in small independent properties to large hotel operations – from leading teams of three to 50 plus chefs – and I can’t wait to share my wealth of culinary knowledge with the Restaurant 1309 team,” said Gallagher.

Aidan will meticulously design each of Restaurant 1309’s seasonal menus to champion sustainably sourced ingredients as well as high quality fresh produce from local growers and producers – all whilst ensuring the flavours flawlessly marry the tastes of Balgownie’s very-own boutique wine.
