Matthew Kemp has signed on as Q Station Manly’s ambassador chef.
Matthew’s strong food philosophy will be translated across Q Station’s culinary offerings in Boilerhouse Restaurant and events.
Kemp said, “I am very excited to have joined the Q Station team, working to implement exciting new concepts, menus and ideas for Boilerhouse Restaurant as well as the weddings and events offerings.
“The incredible atmosphere from the natural surroundings is well-complemented by the new culinary offerings and promises a unique dining experience.”
Matthew was the chef de cuisine at the now defunct Banc and opened his own restaurants Balzac, Billingsgate Fish Bistro and Burlington Bar and Dining in the decade following.
After eleven years of running his own businesses, Matthew finished up his independent projects and started with The Keystone Group as senior head chef. The latest collaboration with Q Station Manly comes two years later, fuelled by his desire for new challenges.
Boilerhouse Harbourside Restaurant and Bar is located by the waters of Quarantine Beach. Two giant boilers from the 1800s have been restored and the walls of the restaurant are covered with enormous pipes and valves.
