Your Chef - Alan GroomAlan Groom is entering his eleventh season at El Questro Homestead having moved to Australia from Canada in 2001. He boasts a resume filled with award winning Boutique Hotels and Restaurants in Canada and the United Kingdom. He was named Chef of the Year in Vancouver for his work at the Wedgewood Hotel and won the Best Restaurant award twice for The Belvedere in Calgary. Groom's cooking showcases the freshest produce from the Kimberley region. His philosophy is all about quality and simplicity: "I like to buy the best available ingredients and let their natural flavours shine. I listen to the guests and what they are telling me is that they like unadulterated food. We always make dining at the Homestead a very special experience, it is like a dinner party every night. 99% of our visitors really enjoy the fact that I plan the menu for them and they don't have to make the decision of what to eat. It is quite a change for them. I always look at who we have staying in house at the moment and try to create a menu to suit their personal tastes and backgrounds".
