Daniel Hughes

Celebrity Chef

Peeling 10 kilos of prawns a day at Daniel’s first job didn’t deter this Adelaide boy from becoming one of Sydney’s top seafood chefs!

Daniel Hughes went straight from completing his apprenticeship to a job as head chef at Adelaide’s Blanc Restaurant, winning a prestigious award for best seafood restaurant in the same year. He brought his love of seafood with his move to Sydney, setting up at Manta Restaurant and Bar on Woolloomooloo’s gorgeous Finger Wharf. Influenced by Thomas Keller, Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and locally Steve Manfredi, he combines his passion for classic technique with his Italian heritage to create stunning seafood dishes.
