Michael Jenkins - The Anchorage

Michael has lived and worked in the Port Stephens region several times and what continues to draw him back is the ability to source some of the world’s most incredible fresh ingredients. From the estuary that is Port Stephens to the surrounding rivers and valleys, exceptional produce is in abundance. The way I tell my story is to embrace and maintain the integrity of the quality seafood and produce and create a simple, flavourful and satisfying menu.
