French-born Guillaume Brahimi is one of Australia's most popular and acclaimed chefs. He trained under Michelin-starred chef Joel Robuchon in Paris before moving to Sydney in the 1990s. In late 2001, Guillaume won the prestigious contract to take over the flagship restaurant at the Sydney Opera House, Bennelong, and, after a refurbishment, opened this spectacular venue in November 2001 as Guillaume at Bennelong. The restaurant went on to win almost every major accolade in Australian food, as well as international recognition. By 2003, held Two Chef Hats in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide and in 2013, Guillaume and his team regained their three- hat status in the 2014 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide. That same year, Guillaume was awarded Vittoria Legend Award for his outstanding long-term contribution to the restaurant industry. Guillaume at Bennelong had its last service on New Year’s Eve 2013.
In 2009 Guillaume formed a partnership with Crown Entertainment Complex (Melbourne) and open Bistro Guillaume. In September 2012, Guillaume opened his second Bistro Guillaume in Crown Perth. In August 2016, Guillaume opened his own Bistro Guillaume in Sydney’s CBD. When Crown Sydney opened its doors in late 2020, Guillaume was appointed as Culinary Ambassador, building on the partnership and relationship with Crown that now spans 11 years.
Not rest on his laurels, Guillaume has authored two cookbooks (Guillaume: Food for Friends and Guillaume: Food for Family) and is the host of SBS’s food series, Plat du Tour.
