Sequoia Lodge Head Chef

Matt Rodgers

Matt trained as a chef in the UK with a classical French background starting at Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons by Raymond Blanc, a two Michelin starred kitchen sustained by their kitchen garden and focus on seasonal menus. He then worked at a further two Michelin restaurants in both the UK and Ireland before moving to Australia in 2017.
Matt began his Australian experience in Tasmania before moving to South Australia to work in the d’Arenberg Cube Restaurant under Head Chef Brendan Wessels. He completed his time in Australia at ARC Restaurant in Brisbane with Alana Sapwell where his knowledge of Indigenous ingredients developed.

While on the return back home Matt worked a stint on Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island in the Caribbean Sea before settling at two Michelin starred Restaurant Sat Bains where Matt progressed to Development Chef until July this year.

His approach at Sequoia will be to source produce from the small farms around the Adelaide Hills and forage for ingredients that will promote a menu that highlights South Australia and the Adelaide Hills.
His personal interests include fishing, cricket and football.
