MAT MCLEAN OWNER AND HEAD CHEF,
PA LATE, HAMILTON
Mat, the inaugural winner of the Silver Fern Farms Restaurant Awards in 2013 ( previously Premier Selection Awards), is regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading chefs and Palate is one of New Zealand’s most awarded restaurants. Mat is committed to cooking with seasonal, local produce and it is his passion for quality ingredients that he credits with his success. “Customers are looking for that unique taste experience but the story of the produce is also on their mind. That is why I want to know how the animals have been raised.”
