Meet Wild Dog Chef Ed McDowell

A passion for food, friends and family all unite at the Wild Dog Winery restaurant, run by chef Ed works his magic in the kitchen he has called home for the past six years, creating distinct, uniquely modernist meals using locally sourced ingredients and produce. Aiming to always use local, fresh ingredients, Ed makes his Mushroom Melange from locally sourced mushrooms. “We try to always buy local mushrooms if we can,” he said. “At the very least, the produce is Victorian.” The team at Wild Dog are all passionate about good food, good wine and great service, and with the undulating green hills of Gippsland providing a lush backdrop to your dining experience, the Wild Dog Winery restaurant makes for the perfect place to relax with a glass or two of award winning cool climate wines, and a delicious, locally produced meal of Ed’s creation.  passion for food, friends and family all unite at the Wild Dog Winery restaurant, run by chef Ed McDowell.
