Tristan Rosier started his first job in the kitchen at just 15 years old. His love of food comes from what he describes as growing up in the ‘classic Bowral family’, where his mother and grandmother cooked (and still cook) traditional country fare for the family with homegrown and local produce.
His grandmother set him up with an apprenticeship at the St George Motor Boat Club in Sans Souci where he spent five years before moving on. It was his time working for Peter Doyle at Est. in 2010 and 2011 that had a profound effect on his cooking and cemented his ideas about his approach to cooking and his future as a chef.
Tristan opened Farmhouse with Michel Mu Sung in 2013, as Head Chef and the pair earned themselves a hat in the Good Food Guide in their first year of opening.
In 2018 Tristan Rosier and partner Rebecca Fanning joined forces to open Arthur – the first solo venture for both. Set in an 1880’s heritage listed building on Bourke Street, Surry Hills the restaurant offers a feeling of permanence, which invites guests to feel like they have stepped into the chef’s home.
