In the past Ann Oliver developed a reputation for delivering restaurant quality food for large events under the most impossible circumstances.


A favourite of the wine industry Ann has work closely with the Penfolds winemaking team for many years until June 2018. She worked closely with Rockford wines Stonewall Table when their previous chefs Michael Voumard and the late Ali Cribb took annual leave. Ann has cooked under some amazing circumstances. An APEC Ministers’ Dinner, a week long event for the Hardy Company (now Constellation) cooking for their six day tech conference in the Flinders Ranges. Oliver will sight the Hardy Tech Conference as her most challenging, but exhilarating experience - no running water, Oliver with her small crew cooked breakfast, morning and afternoon tea, lunch and dinner, making everything on site from the bread to the puff pastry and orchestrating several performance dinners over the week. Oliver specialises in regional events, delighting in supporting her producers and introducing them to the broader public.


Retired, in 2019 Oliver's cooking is limited to the very occasional small private or corporate events and she insists on working with long-term front of house manager Sharon Noel. Both Oliver and Noel have strong wine knowledge and both share a passion for matching wine to food. Each event is treated as unique and menus are always based on seasonal local produce. Oliver can cook confidently in several classical cuisines including Chinese.
