OUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY
Much like how winemaking is working in balance and cohesion with the elements, our Executive Chef Nik Tucker adapts to what produce the season brings him to create flavoursome dishes bursting with life on your plate—using his exceptional skills working with coals, to allow the natural flavours of the produce to shine through without overpowering the accompanying wine.
"St Hugo is renowned for powerful and elegant wines, and as the new Executive Chef, my goal is to complement these wines with flavoursome, relaxed food," says Nik. "In everything I create, I aim to showcase the wines with high quality, fresh produce from local producers… that are genuinely passionate about their product. I am proud to be able to carry this philosophy through to St Hugo with the use of the on-site kitchen garden and excellent suppliers."
Our chefs use regional and seasonal produce to create flavoursome, relaxed food to delight and entice our guests alongside our delicious wines. We look forward to welcoming you into our 50-seater space to showcase the best epicurean experience for you and your guests. Bookings are essential.
The Barossa is in Nikolas Tucker's blood, having been born and bred here just like Hugo Gramp. After an extensive career both here in Australia and abroad we're honoured to have lured him back to his roots to join us as Executive Chef.
Nikolas is using his lifetime of knowledge of the Barossa region and seasonal produce to create flavoursome, relaxed food to delight and entice our guests alongside our delicious wines.
