Matt Wilkinson
Head Chef and Owner of Pope Joan

Late 2010 saw Matt depart Circa to open the café Pope Joan, in East Brunswick Melbourne, with business partner Ben Foster. With its strong emphasis on locally-grown and seasonal fare, with a distinctly British twist, Pope Joan soon became a destination. Three years on and Pope Joan has a fantastic little produce store called Hams and Bacon, Matt has published 2 books Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables and Mr Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads and has contributed regularly to Delicious Magazine
