ABOUT OUR GUEST CHEF:
Darren Templeman started his culinary journey at the tender age of 15, working at 1 michelin star restaurant in his home town of Plymouth (UK).
Then moving to London to broaden his experience at fine establishments in the city; the high-flying Crockford Casino and Rules Restaurant, known as the ‘Oldest Restaurant in London’ specialising in English wild game and fish.
After several stints with well known chefs, such as Gordon Ramsey, Marco Pierre White, he settled to work with Bruno Loubet, the celebrated French-born chef known for conjuring extraordinary dishes from plain ingredients and to maximise the best out of all produce. Whilst recognising the roots of the producers working the land.
After six-years as sous chef with Loubet, he came to Australia and established Restaurant Atelier in small premises at the unfashionable end of Newtown’s King Street. This restaurant then relocated to Glebe Point Road, Glebe, trading for an impressive 10 years and well renowned for fresh flavours, lightness of dishes and quality of produce. During which time he worked up a close relationship with many farmers around Australia.
After the restaurant closed last year, Darren spent some time in Singapore to cook alongside 3 michelin star chef “ Narisawa” and to cook at the Asia best 50 awards.
Templeman now joins chef and owner of O Bar and Dining, Michael Moore, who said Templeman’s “farm to table” philosophy and light, fresh cooking style is a perfect match to the O Bar and Dining offering.
