Meet Chef Alla

Alla Wolf – Tasker: Executive Chef & Managing Director of Lake Daylesford, Victoria, Australia

An icon in regional dining, Lake House in Daylesford has long been considered to be one of Australia’s best restaurants, championing local seasonal cuisine long before it became a mantra for many. Alla is also founding chair of Daylesford Macedon Produce – a 14 year old organisation linking growers, producers, chefs and retailers in a true local food system for that region.

We are excited to welcome Chef Alla as the guest chef for the very first Evenings AFAR event at the James Beard House in NYC.

Discover Why There's Nothing Like Australia

Australia is a place serving up the best food and wine experiences in remarkable locations every day. You’ll enjoy new flavors and fresh thinking with friendly mates surrounded by Australia’s world class beauty. From the exciting indigenous history that dates back more than 50,000 years, to the legendary heroes and pioneers who forged the way, there truly is nothing like Australia.

AFAR took a group of curious travelers to Sydney for an unforgettable event like no other to take part in AFAR Experiences Australia. Watch the video for their adventure in Sydney.
