Ivan Roianov knows he’s taken over the reins at the Lonsdale Golf Club at the very right time. The new executive chef says he is super excited at the prospect of getting into the kitchen of the club’s soon to be built clubhouse, overlooking Lake Victoria. “It will be a major drawcard”, he agrees. “I am super excited about it honestly. I have seen the plans and the kitchen and restaurant are quite impressive.” For now though, the Ukranian-born Ivan is busily utilising his considerable knowledge of food to create a unique new menu, which itself is set to be a drawcard. “I’m from another part of the world, eastern Europe, and for me there was a lot of focus on Mediterranean food, everything was around the Mediterranean Sea - Italian, French, Spain, Greece. “I’ve visited these countries and tried their cuisines and they really impress me. I grew up with this art of cuisine, and it’s very close to me,” he says. “I’ve also worked with lots of different chefs from other countries, French and Italian, which has also helped to develop my skill and tastes. And I worked in Dubai for around five years, so there’s also a middle eastern touch in my cooking. “I combine a lot of different flavours in my cuisine, I like mixing different flavours. There’s no real restrictions in my cooking.” If the club’s already revamped lunch menu is any guide, expect fresh and healthy. Ivan has a passion for showcasing local produce and believes the Bellarine boasts some of the best. Prior to arriving in Point Lonsdale, he was executive chef at Lorne’s Mantra Resort, and before that, spent two years at Terrindah Estate. “I know all the local producers and how beautiful the produce is on the Bellarine Peninsula and I’m super excited to use them, especially Lonsdale Tomatoes, Drysdale Goats Cheese, Lighthouse Olive Oil, our local berries. There’s so much here. Ivan admits when he arrived in Australia with his wife of five years, the young couple had wondered if they’d made the right move. “Our first year in Australia was quite difficult initially because we had moved from Dubai, a very big, noisy and crowded city and we’d come to Geelong and it was very different. “It was really quiet for us and we didn’t understand that, but after two-and-a-half years we are really enjoying the slower, not very fast life with a life-work balance and the beautiful people around us and the beautiful nature,” he says. \"We have really fallen in love with Australia and we don’t want to move anywhere.” COURTESY VEHICLE SERVICE AVAILABLE The Rip March 2020 Page 8
