I’m a chef, no longer the exec chef at Hilton Adelaide which was home for around 10 years, but I’m still rattling pots and pans around. I guess my day job is creative director for the longest running national food festival in Australia; Tasting Australia

I’m a sometime television presenter (with that force of nature and all round good food, Barossa girl Maggie Beer) on the ABC’s “The Cook and The Chef”

Following his formal training Executive Chef and Co-Owner Craig Will, born and bred in Tasmania, spent a few years working and gaining experience in restaurants interstate and intrastate.  He was lured home take on his first business partnership and Head Chef position at Stillwater’s sister operation Black Cow Bistro in 2008.  In 2010 he bought into the Stillwater operation and is now Executive Chef and Co-owner in both restaurants. His pride and love of local produce and the seasonal nature of Tasmanian agriculture translates into an indulgent Contemporary Tasmanian menu at Stillwater Restaurant with a focus on Tasmanian beef at Black Cow Bistro. A regular visitor to Harvest to find out what is best and freshest, Craig loves discovering new producers and products and all this combined with having some great family time with his girls is his favourite way to start the weekend. 

In 2016 we also had visits from these renowned chefs.
