Brook Petrie, First in Line-Up of Culinary Stars To Descend on Alila Soori

Alila Villas Soori unveils its first celebrity guest chef on its bill of culinary wizards that will present their expertise in lavish feasts at the resort throughout the year. 

First up is Brook Petrie, head chef of The Commoner restaurant in Fitzroy, Melbourne, who will excite guests’ palates at the resort’s Cotta on the 22nd February 2013. 

Brook was instilled with the importance of fresh, seasonal produce during his time as a chef at the Auckland Institute of Technology. Further posts along his career included the famed Auckland seafood restaurant Hammerheads and Wellington’s acclaimed Icon restaurant at Te Papa Museum. 

After leaving New Zealand in 2002, Brook’s extensive travels saw him take up chef positions at a number of internationally acclaimed restaurants including clocking up over four years at Peter Gordon’s Providores in London. Time spent at Christine Manfield’s dynamic East West in London and Michelin-starred Public Restaurant in New York helped Brook hone his talents for producing eclectic, global cuisine.

Drawing inspiration from his travels around the world and experience in some of the world’s best kitchens, Brook shakes up classic British dishes with a contemporary edge at The Commoner in Melbourne. Here he excites guests with food that is both comforting and quirky. At Alila Villas Soori’s Cotta, Brook will bring with him some of his signatures that have become favourites among the patrons of the famous Melbourne restaurant. 

Alila Villas Soori

Alila Villas Soori gives the sophisticated traveler the option to stay at a luxury resort in West Bali. Located along the southwest coast of Bali, in the Tabanan Regency, the resort is just 20 minutes from Tanah Lot temple, and over an hour from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Set in one of Bali’s most fertile and picturesque regions, Alila Villas Soori lies between beautiful volcanic-sand beaches and verdant rice terraces, with the mystical Mount Batukaru in the distant horizon. Designed by Singapore-based SCDA Architects, Alila Villas Soori is an inspired expression of contemporary Asian architecture that blends seamlessly with the lush surroundings of its tropical beachfront setting, and which has been designed, constructed and managed in accordance with Green Globe international environmental standards.
