You’ve stumbled into Mr. Wilkinson’s – a leisurely site for perusing the goings-on of chef Matt Wilkinson, founder of the Pie shop, creative director for all things “Made from Gin” by Four Pillars Gin and and former owner/founder of Melbourne eatery Pope Joan.

In Matt’s first book, Mr. Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables, he describes his no-fuss, seasonal-driven approach to food:

“I build my dishes around vegetables in season because this is when they will be the cheapest, most readily available and, most importantly, taste the best.”

With a thriving vegie garden and two hooligans, Finn and Jay, to wrangle, Matt’s shenanigans these days are mostly confined to Melbourne, Australia.  Don’t let this lull you into a false sense of security though: he travels.  A lot.
