Co-head chef of one of Merivale’s coolest restaurants and just months from launching the group’s, much-anticipated, city restaurant, Jowett Yu must surely be dizzied by the speed in which he has risen to success in Sydney.
Growing up in picturesque British Columbia, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in Canada, Jowett found his love for cooking within the kitchens of local grill restaurants, which spurred him to complete qualifications in professional culinary and professional pastry courses.
Jowett moved to Australia in 2007 and commenced his Sydney career in three-hatted style, joining Tetsuya’s as Chef de Partie, followed by another three-hatted stint, this time, under the watchful eye of Mark Best at Marque in Surry Hills.
In April 2008, Jowett joined Merivale’s Potts Point bistro, Lotus, as Sous Chef. It was here that he met his future partner in kitchen crime, Dan Hong.
Most recently, the innovative pair has injected an uber-cool dose of inspired cooking to Sydney’s dining scene, as co-head chefs at Potts Point eatery, Ms.G’s. Here, Jowett has found the best expression of himself, calling on his Asian heritage to create a fun and unique dining experience combining Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Chinese and Korean influences with - surprisingly - junk food-inspired dishes.
The Sydney Morning Herald summed up the result saying, “They've dee-jayed a contemporary Asian menu that puts many iconic street dishes of Vietnam, Taiwan, China and Korea on shuffle.”
Yu’s reputations as one of Sydney’s fastest rising talents will continue to grow when both Jowett and Dan open Merivale’s Cantonese-inspired restaurant at Establishment in mid 2012.
Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
