The team behind East End Cellars and The Tasting Room have appointed a new head chef.
Josh Lansley is a French-trained, British chef who came to Australia eight years ago for a working holiday.
He loved Adelaide so much, he hasn’t left.
Josh is set to redefine the dining experience at East End Cellars.
His style of cooking couples the best seasonal ingredients with highly refined techniques and skills.
Straight off the bat, Josh is marking National Pinot Day with two new pie flavours: Cumin Spiced Lamb, and Butternut Pumpkin, Pine Nut and Goat Cheese.
The pies will be a feature of East End Cellars’ menu until the end of winter.
Additionally, he is adding to the much-loved Charcuterie Boards and Gourmet toasted sandwiches, with bespoke elements such as the Japanese Hibachi chargrill and European style offerings.
Josh is excited to commence work at East End Cellars.
“I can’t wait to build on the foundations that have been laid over the past few years by bringing my own passion and philosophy to a new expanded menu,” he says.
A large part of Josh’s formative years were spent in London where he honed his craft and skills in restaurants such as Almeida Restaurant and Launceston Place, where he achieved the coveted Michelin star.
Back home in Adelaide, Josh has worked as sous chef at Osteria Oggi, as well as the head chef of well-known Simon Kardashi restaurant, Press Food and Wine.
Michael Andrewartha, owner of East End Cellars, is “super excited” about Josh’s appointment.
“Josh brings another level of experience and knowledge to the table at East End Cellars. Our customers are going to love him and what he creates for our Tasting Room Menu,” he says.
Expect large and small plates that marry beautifully with the broad variety of wines on sale.
You can find East End Cellars at 25 Vardon Avenue, Adelaide.
