Angliss students join Matteo and Buddha in North Fitzroy

Leading Australian restaurateur Matteo Pignatelli, with new Executive Chef and Angliss graduate Kah-wai (aka 'Buddha') Lo, and Guest Chef Raymond Capaldi shared their expertise with cookery and hospitality students from William Angliss Institute at Fitzroy restaurant Matteo’s at a special lunch  as part of the Institute’s Great Chefs Program.

Chef Kah-Wai completed his apprenticeship under previous executive chef Brendan McQueen at Matteo’s and then worked under the direction of chef Raymond Capaldi at restaurant Hare and Grace.

Kah-Wai was awarded the 2015 Gordon Ramsay Excellence Award, competing against five other Gordon Ramsay employees at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London. He originally completed his apprenticeship under Brendan McQueen at Matteo’s and then worked under the direction of chef Raymond Capaldi at Hare and Grace before moving to the UK.

Matteo graduated from William Angliss Institute with a Diploma of Business in Hospitality Management in 1989 and went on open Matteo’s in North Fitzroy in 1994. As the President of the Restaurant & Catering Australia (RCA) National Board and a member of the board of William Angliss Institute, Matteo is passionate about industry training.

Matteo said working together for the next generation of hospitality professionals is vital and he wants to encourage more restaurants and hospitality businesses to become involved in industry training. “I believe in training chefs not cooks and restaurateurs not waiters. William Angliss taught me a great deal about management styles, techniques and systems. My diploma studies gave me an excellent insight into all aspects of running a successful hospitality business,".

The 12 apprentice chefs worked closely with Kah-Wai and Raymond to produce and serve the seasonally inspired four course lunch matched with wine to a full house of guests. 12 students studying Certificate IV Hospitality at the Institute performed front-of-house duties working closely under the direction of Matteo and his front-of-house manager.

Hospitality student Francesco Locatelli said he had learned a lot from this opportunity. “It has been great to work in a professional restaurant setting and learn from industry leaders.  Working closely with Matteo today it was his attention to detail that really stood out and how important this is to the whole restaurant experience,”.

Matteo’s has been awarded two hats in the coveted ‘Age Good Food Guide’ for 18 of the past 22 years. The Age Good Food Guide 2015 review said, “For two decades Matteo's has offered fine dining with a cheeky wink. A heritage building, plush fittings and stiff linen bestow gravitas, and the food is ambitious and original, but proprietor Matteo Pignatelli sets a genial, light-hearted tone.”

Traditionally held in the Angliss Restaurant at the city campus, William Angliss Institute’s famous Great Chefs program gives hospitality and cookery students the opportunity to work with the crème de-la-crème of Melbourne’s vibrant culinary scene and offers other industry professionals and the general public a superb dining experience and great value for money.
