You would think two thriving restaurants in food obsessed Melbourne would be enough for an accomplished Chef! But not Gary Mehigan, who is expanding his ever burgeoning TV career. Gary is currently in production for Series two as the Judge & co-host of Channel Ten's hugely successful Masterchef Australia series. The show has broken ratings records in Australia and is now airing worldwide. Celebrity Masterchef aired in October 2009 and Junior Masterchef is earmarked for late 2010. Gary also has ongoing commitments to Network Ten, his first (Comfort Food) and second book (Your place or Mine with George Calombaris) due out in April and November 2010 respectively.

Gary Mehigan was the most watched Chef on Australia in 2009, and has established himself as a natural TV presenter. He is highly regarded for his passion & integrity for Food & Cooking, and the way in which he operates his two successful businesses in Melbourne.

Prior to MCA, Gary already had a budding TV career, with his roles on 9am with David & Kim, Boys Weekend which airs worldwide in over 100 countries and Good Chef, Bad Chef which is now in its second series.

Gary did his apprenticeship and formative years of cooking in London, where being passionate about food was about the only thing that got you through. Not only was it London, but the Connaught and the Souffle, two of the most elite dining rooms in the UK, at the time. You think he would have learnt his lesson by now!

Gary has called Melbourne home since 1991, and has worked at a plethora of venues including the gracious Burnheim Beeches, Brown's Restaurant, Novotel Melbourne, and Sofitel Melbourne. He has certainly covered a cross-section of Melbourne dining.

Gary is continually in demand as a guest chef and consultant, due to his clean, fresh cooking style, as well as his finally honed business skills and salesmanship.
