ATC’s Gerry Maher named Chef of the Year

Gerry Maher, Group Executive Chef at the Australian Turf Club (ATC) was recently named Chef of the Year at the Restaurant & Catering, NSW Hospitality Awards which honours outstanding professionals in the hospitality industry.

Gerry has been in the hospitality industry since he was sixteen and has enjoyed a career spanning over 30 years. After studying Catering and Hospitality at the National College of Ireland, Gerry’s career has taken him across the globe, in roles including Sous Chef at the Sydney Olympic Games, owner of a catering company, and now leading the kitchen and catering team at the ATC. As Group Executive Chef, Gerry manages the catering at ATC’s five venues – Royal Randwick, Rosehill Gardens, Canterbury Park, Warwick Farm, and Rosehill Bowling Club.

Gerry was thrilled to receive an award for doing something he is truly passionate about and dedicated to.

“This award is a great honour and I’m humbled to receive it when I’m amongst such an outstanding list of fellow chefs and finalists. And while this award is for Chef of the Year, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without the incredible teams I get to work with across all our venues, and so I celebrate this win with them.

“I am fortunate to work in an industry I am deeply passionate about and where every day offers something new – from ingredients and how different cultures and chefs utilise them, to the wonderful mix of people in the industry – my career has been and continues to be an exciting journey of learning.”

ATC has a multitude of flexible, light-filled spaces for your next meeting and event, including the new two-level $46.6 million state-of-the-art WINX Stand at Royal Randwick. Enquire today to arrange a venue tour with our team.
