Born In Britain, Marked By Melbourne with Ian Curley

Ian Curley has had regular TV appearances, hosting his own show on Channel 7’s Conviction Kitchen and recurring guest spots on popular programs like MasterChef Australia and Yes Chef.

He’s a British-born, Australian-based chef, with a career that’s spanned kitchens from Australia to the United Kingdom.

Over those 40 years (and counting), more than half have been spent leading iconic venues in Melbourne and more recently, consulting as the creative culinary partner to the RASV Showgrounds of Victoria and Ovolo Hotels in Brisbane, Canberra, and Melbourne.

Ian’s signature style of European cuisine, that champions simplicity, as the highest form of complexity, was built from a foundation of rigorous training in his early career in London.

He’s currently the co-owner and chef at French Saloon and Kirk’s Wine Bar, Director of restaurant consultancy group, Exec Chef and has had a successful partnership with The Melbourne Racing Club since 2013.
