Jack Ingram was brought up in Dorset, England – a place of fine food and fantastic produce. He had his training at the Michelin starred Lygon Arms Hotel under Head Chef Martin Blunos. His passion for food developed therein as did his desire to grow and mature as a chef.
Jack Ingram moved to Melbourne in 2010 and worked at the highly acclaimed Vue de monde, finishing up as Chef De Cuisine at Bistro Vue, which is the sister restaurant to the main Vue de monde restaurant.
In 2015 the opportunity came to come to Kangaroo Island and Southern Ocean Lodge as Executive Chef. During this time he made many friends and connections with producers and growers within the Island and South Australia and fell in love with the passion and quality produced in this region.
When the opportunity arose to take over Sunset Winery Jack knew it was a dream come true to be able to cook and showcase what South Australia has to offer and put Kangaroo Island on the map as a food and wine destination it deserves to be.
With access to so many quality local ingredients, Jack and Vanessa will be working closely with food producers and growers from Kangaroo Island and South Australia, only using what is in season and what is at its very best. We will focus on great wines produced on Kangaroo Island as well as wines from further afield.
