Gay Bilson is a writer, literary critic and former Sydney restaurateur. For some 25 years (1973 - 1998) she delivered some of Sydney's finest dining, first at Bon Gout with Tony Bilson, then at Berowra Waters with first Tony and then Janni Kryitsis, and finally with Janni again at Bennelong at the Opera House. Since retiring as a restaurateur, Gay has authored several books, created and directed several significant food and arts related community events.
A participant in the Australian Symposium on Gastronomy from its beginnings, Bilson is a deep thinker about food and our relationship with it and has been writing about food and the culture of food for many years.
An important landmark in Australian gastronomy.
