Head Chef - Casey McDonald

When Casey took the Head Chef position at Craggy Range, he brought a wealth of knowledge and experience. Since entering the industry at a young age, Casey has worked alongside some of the world’s most acclaimed culinary leaders globally and closer to home. Rex Morgan in Wellington, Gary Danko in San Francisco, two Michelin starred The Square with Phil Howard in London and more recently helming Andrew McConnell’s Melbourne restaurants, including Supernatural, Cumulus and Cutler & Co. The latter being awarded Gourmet Traveller’s ‘Best in Australia’.

Craggy Range Restaurant was a chance to take his background and create a dining experience that spoke of his natural inclinations and showcased the abundant bounty of this unique region. The last decade’s adventures have influenced Casey’s signature style – from the uniquely warm hospitality driven by his kitchen and front-of-house teams to his desire to champion our region’s unique spoils and the incredible people and families who produce them.

Under Casey’s leadership, the Craggy Range restaurant has received many accolades, including two hats and New Zealand Winery Restaurant of the Year in the Cuisine Good Food Awards.
