For many, a day digging around in the veggie patch is a fulfilling hobby, squeezed in around a busy 9–5 office lifestyle. Not the case for our Head Gardner, Elliott Neil. The vegetable garden, orchard and olive grove at Millbrook Winery are legendary. Elliott jumped at the chance to switch out his chef whites for gumboots and a trowel. Read ahead as Elliott shares the ins and outs of producing some of WA’s finest produce.
We are continuing our peek behind the scenes at Millbrook Winery, this time popping into the bustling kitchen. Jamie Hembrow joined Millbrook in 2018, working alongside Guy Jeffreys as Sous Chef, before taking on the lead role as Head Chef in 2020. For many, it is a dream to work at your favourite restaurant; Jamie has proved with hard work, ingenuity and creativity that this dream can come true.
