Chef Out West

The importance of food as a universal expression of culture and community is explored in a beautifully bold web series called Chef Out West produced by Maribyrnong City Council.

The series explores the culinary journey of six chefs from the inner west who share their gift to connect cultures and build social harmony.

Mirroring the diversity of the inner west, the nationalities of the featured chefs include French, Ethiopian, Italian, Chinese and Vietnamese. All share their unique stories of arrival in Melbourne’s west and their enduring passion for the local community that they serve.

Chef out West is a series to savour. The food on display is mouth-watering and confirms what we here in the west already know – our food offerings are arguably some of the best in Victoria. While individual journeys, each imbues a passion for our community and highlights the importance of supporting the recovery of small hospitality traders, who are the soul of our community.

Each of the six micro episodes is snack size, under four minutes in length, and has been lovingly put together by Melbourne Filmmaker Eli Dance Ali.
