Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat’s have been awarded to discerning Chefs around the country since 1982. These awards are the result of careful deliberation by a range of inspectors who dine anonymously and appointed directly by AGFG.

The awards are rated on six key attributes; ingredients, taste, presentation, technique, value and consistency. The awards objective is to reward exceptional chefs, not chefs that are exceptional at adhering to set guidelines, explains AGFG’s Managing Director.

“With a passion to celebrate technique in the kitchen, craftsmanship on the table and produce on the plate, this award is a reflection of my team’s ongoing passion to elevate simple and seasonal dishes into something special for every guest.” – Head Chef, Francesco Mannelli

General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, Bahram Sepahi adds “We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded a Chef’s Hat by the Australian Good Food Guide.  It’s a true testament to the dedicated and passionate team at Mode Kitchen & Bar who consistently deliver exceptional dining experiences.”

Head Chef Francesco Mannelli has also been awarded ‘Chef of the Year’ – Awards for Excellence, Tourism Accommodation Australia 2019.
