The Clover Hill Oyster Bar is the perfect place to take a moment, sip some outstanding Clover Hill sparkling wine and enjoy wonderful local oysters. So come on over and have a seat, it’s the perfect place to see the Celebrity chefs do their thing and watch the world go by!

Clover Hill is one of Australia’s principal chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier cuvées. In 1986, on the site of an old dairy farm in north-east Tasmania, the magnificent Clover Hill Vineyard was established by the Goelet family. Their aim was, and still is, to produce superb sparkling wine using traditional French methodology. Since its debut vintage in 1991, Clover Hill has gained a reputation for its uncompromising quality, its elegance and finesse, and its distinguished Tasmanian style.

Jessie Spiby ~ MasterChef

With just $500 in her pocket, at age 18, Jessie Spiby packed her bags and headed for the UK. Looking back now she wonders how she did it, but she took the challenge in her stride, living and working in London for 18 months and in Edinburgh for six months. While based in Europe, Jessie visited Italy, Turkey, Poland, Croatia and the Czech Republic (she had visited France and Spain as a child). More recently she has been to Asia, with Vietnam a firm favourite and a major influence on her cooking. Growing up in Adelaide, Jessie learnt to cook from her mum and grandma. She further developed her skills while travelling. As well as Vietnamese food, Jessie loves fresh vibrant flavours like Thai and Spanish.
After studying interior architecture for four years, Jessie switched to graphic design and worked for a number of magazines before putting her career on hold to pursue a future in food. Her partner of five-and-a-half years, Matt, an electrician, is 100 per cent behind Jessie and is her biggest supporter, alongside her mum and step-dad, her dad, sister, step-brother and two step-sisters.Jessie already has a clear vision of her dream venue. It will be a warehouse space, serving Asian street food featuring native Australian ingredients. The vibe would be completed by street art and installations. With food heroes such as Luke Nguyen, Matthew Evans, Yotam Ottolenghi, Maggie Beer and Simon Bryant, Jessie says her ambition is to make food her life. “I had such an amazing experience in Vietnam and just fell in love with the culture and the lifestyle. It made me want to be my own boss and move to my own beat. I love cooking and I love feeding people. I just love seeing people enjoy food, my food or any food.”
