COVID has not been kind to the hospitality trade generally, and top nosheries specifically. But Gourmet Traveller is looking forward to better days and named its 80 “most exciting and exceptional dining experiences” for 2022. Top of the list is the uber local Tedesca Osteria in Red Hill, Victoria run by Brigitte Hafner. Located in a small community on the Mornington Peninsula, it’s known for its fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from the area. Top chef is Daniel Puskas from Sixpenny in Stanmore, Sydney – he also likes to keep things close to home. Both Hafner and Puskas say the industry has been changed by the pandemic. Some of that is yet to drop, Hafner said, including a more sustainable work culture that has been based on “cheap labour, long, long hours, gruelling work.” Check out the full list here.
