About Bob, Will and Dean

Bob Hart pixPicture by Manuela Cifra BOB HART is an all-round food tragic who has become a Melbourne institution through his witty but authoritative writing and broadcasting on food over two decades. He trained, in Queensland, as a journalist and spent a decade writing first news, and then features and showbiz columns, for The Sun newspaper on London’s Fleet Street in the golden era of newspapers. He then worked in the record industry, mining another golden era, before returning to journalism in general, and food writing in particular, in Melbourne in the early 1990s. His passion for barbecue began in the years he lived in the US where, in 1980, he bought his first Weber kettle. And the smoke began to rise…
Will Studd pixPicture: supplied Will Studd has been devoted to artisan cheese since establishing specialist food stores in central London in the 1970s. He migrated to Melbourne in the 1980s, where he has promoted a greater understanding of what good cheese is all about, as well as fiercely championing the cause for cheese made from raw milk. Will's first book, Chalk and Cheese, was published in 1999 and his follow-up title, Cheese Slices, in 2007. He is a regular contributor to numerous food titles including Australian Gourmet Traveller, hosts the celebrated TV series Cheese Slices which screens worldwide, and appears regularly at specialty cheese and food events around the world. His knowledge of specialist cheeses, and the people who make them, is unsurpassed.

Dean Cambray pixPicture by Suzette Nesire DEAN CAMBRAY is a larger-than-life culinary and photographic genius who has always been driven by his love for food: he trained and triumphed as a chef in some of Europe’s finest kitchens, shone as a restaurateur with his Melbourne restaurant, Cambray’s, which earned three hats in The Age Good Food Guide, and then refocussed his passion by picking up a camera, retraining as a photographer, and quickly becoming one of Australia’s top food shooters. He has shot books, TV series stills, ad campaigns here and in the US, and, famously, partnered Bob Hart in their celebrated Saturday restaurant pages in the Weekend magazine of Melbourne’s Herald Sun.
