Guy Jeffreys at Millbrook Winery
I have shot a whole lot of food – a conservative estimate would place the figure at around 40,000 dishes – since becoming a full time professional food photographer 15 years ago. After seeing all of this food, it is refreshing to work with a chef like Guy Jeffreys.
Guy grows his vegetables from seeds that have been saved from the previous year’s crop, and he prepares his produce for the plate with more care and respect than most.
I recently spent some time with Guy, Jessica and Damo at Millbrook Winery in the hills just south of Perth. Guys has a great approach to cooking – all of the veg comes from the garden that he and the kitchen team maintain. Nothing is wasted and everything grown is valued.
In 2017, Guy was named as Chef of the Year by the West Australian Good Food Guide – read on as he walks you through the dishes we shot together.
