Teage Ezard

Teage Ezard is recognised as one of the country’s leading chef/restaurateurs whose trademark contemporary cuisine is championed at his Melbourne establishments ezard and Gingerboy.

He started his career at Guernica and has owned and operated his eponymous Asian-inspired restaurant since 1999. In ezard’s first year it was awarded Two Hats – which it maintains today – and named Best New Restaurant in The Age Good Food Guide. Ezard was later awarded The Age Good Food Guide Chef of the Year in 2003.


Ezard introduced the popular and stylish lane-way diner Gingerboy in 2006, serving South-East-Asian street-food, and two years later Gingerboy Upstairs – an intimate space above the restaurant offering beautiful cocktails to complement the hawker-style snacks.

The Star welcomes Ezard to the Sydney dining scene. The contemporary Australian grill will be a far cry from the chef’s characteristic Asian-inspired fare, and Ezard sees it as the ultimate opportunity to showcase his classical training and passion for reinterpreting food-styles of the world.
