The results are in, and Mudgee continues to be the home of a hatted restaurant.
Over the past six months, senior members of the Good Food Guide reviewing team have flown around Australia and anonymously visited hundreds of restaurants.
The reviewers have been and gone, and possibly picked up a few kilos along the way, and after careful deliberation, the Good Food Guide chef's hats for 2018 were unveiled on Monday night.
Mudgee's one-hatted restaurant The Zin House has retained the status for the third year.
The Zin House owner/chef Kim Currie leads the team’s ‘fresh and authentic’ approach.
Over the past 40 years, annual guides in Sydney and Melbourne (and more recently Brisbane) have celebrated the city's finest restaurants, awarding iconic hats to the chefs leading the way.
This year the Good Food Guide has been combined into one national edition.
