Matt Wilkinson


The charming, witty and ever so modest Matt Wilkinson is the co-owner/chef at Pope Joan with business partner Ben Foster, a quaint café with a difference in East Brunswick – now standing proudly next door to the Pope’s papal son, the Bishop of Ostia, a somewhat pleasant local drinking house sharing a kitchen garden & other sacred family resources with his mother (and more than a few secrets too).

In recent times, Mr Wilkinson has been diligently working on a number of new projects, one being a partnership/ownership with boutique casual food institution Spudbar, which sees him bring expertise and know-how to the table and serving ‘slow food – fast’. His inaugural book aptly entitled “Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables” was published in March 2012.

Wilkinson’s signature ethos lies amongst foods that are in-season, farmers markets and local producers. His free time is spent walking his dog Quincy whilst trying to navigate Master Finn Thomas in his push chair.
