Raised in a family where cooking and dining were important rituals in everyday life, celebrity chef and successful entrepreneur Scott Webster has pursued his passion for fine food and wine for more than 30 years across the globe.
Epitomising the face of eclectic Australian cuisine, Chef Scott is the main powerhouse behind Australian Culinary Consultants (ACC), which has planned and developed dining concepts for some of the world’s major hospitality projects. As the founder behind ‘The Masters of Australian Food and Wine’, a leading bi-annual gastronomic event held at the Crown Casino Melbourne, Chef Scott is continually changing the landscape of the Australian culinary scene.
As a chef, he had the privilege of working at the legendary Savoy Hotel in London, UK, in Leysin, Switzerland at the Grand Hotel, and the prestigious Beverly Hills Country Club on top of his impressive career track throughout Europe, the USA, Canada and Asia.
Chef Scott says, “International would probably be the most accurate description of my food since I've developed my own style over the years as a result of cooking on every continent. Having said this, my food has a genuine Australian feel about it, since I have a passion for the wonderful produce we can source in this country and I love highlighting its flavours and textures.”
Together with his wife Jennifer, Chef Scott’s latest accomplishments was the opening of Carrington Place in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, a beautifully restored guesthouse with a dining room serving contemporary cuisine using superb primary products with indigenous flavours from Australia, and wines from the renowned Hunter Valley region. This milestone of Chef Scott was topped by the opening of Osia Bar and Restaurant in Resorts World Sentosa In 2010. Osia has already won numerous awards and accolades in the short time it has come into existence.
