Embracing the Campbelltown and Camden areas, the Macarthur region was the original food bowl for the fledging colony in the early 1800s thanks to the entrepreneurial efforts of pioneering settlers John Macarthur and his wife, Elizabeth, who also launch Australia’s wine industry in the region, which is now named after them.

The French executive chef of Macarthur’s Infusion restaurant, Loic Lemaitre, recently competed as a finalist in Foodservice Australia’s 2013 Chef of the Year competition in Melbourne.

Mr Lemaitre, who was one of only two finalists from NSW in the prestigious contest from June 2-4, 2013, said he was proud to showcase the culinary appeal of both his stylish restaurant at the Rydges Campbelltown hotel and the wider Macarthur region, 45 minutes south-west of the Sydney CBD.

“As the birthplace of Australia’s food and wine industries, the Macarthur region is fast growing as a fine food destination without the need to travel into the city,” said Mr Lemaitre, who has cooked in Tahiti, New Caledonia and the French Riviera.
