CHEF PROFILE: The Gascoyne Food Festival is thrilled to welcome Amy Hamilton to the States' north this August.
Amy Hamilton is the chef-patron of Liberté, Albany’s finest place to dine and a model small bar for publicans around the state. A bold mash-up of French and Vietnamese flavours – sometimes in the same dish, Hamilton’s cooking is delicious, deeply satisfying and a tender love letter to Great Southern produce and producers." Big words from WA's own Max Veenhuyzen.
Amy's cooking career started in 2001, when the former visual art student naively applied for a dishy job at the acclaimed Must Wine Bar. With a new-found love of hospitality & her degree on the back burner, Amy commenced an apprenticeship under Russell Blaikie and later worked under Riccardo Momesso in Melbourne. Heading west again, Amy got as far as Albany where she worked as a private chef to the likes of Lady Gaga and Michelin starred chef, Shane Osborn.
In 2014 Amy bought Liberté, a run-down Parisian inspired bar inside the historic London Hotel. Her aim was simple; to introduce some good food, a solid bar program & warm welcoming service and in no time at all she had secured Albany a place in many food lover's destination bucket list.
