Travis McAuley is Executive chef at Melbourne’s favourite Greek tavern, Hellenic Republic. Two sites across town and a third set to open in Williamstown keep Travis on his toes as he strives to raise the bar on this winning foodie formula.
"Nothing says comfort food more than slowly braised meat," Travis says. "These sorts of dishes are so easy to make yet so hearty and tasty – they definitely warm you up on a cold winter's day. Any cut of meat suitable for slowly cooking and winter vegetables turned into soups or even warm salads are my favourite ingredients to cook with in winter."
