Australians are kicking goals in the USA from actors, brands, chefs and wine. There is definitely a secret sauce that ‘Aussies’ deliver. Performance chef, Dan Churchill is bringing it in spades with his Australian heritage and unique, innovative dishes to the kitchen of The Osprey nestled within the 1 Hotel Brooklyn.
Dan is prioritizing creative, plant-forward and locally inspired dishes while spicing things up with some favorites from home, paired with Australian wines. Of course, that also meant sourcing his favourite chef workwear from Cargo Crew which is also Australian-owned.
Dan has truly mastered the art of designing flavorful meals that nourish the body, mind and taste buds while minimizing food waste, being conscious of the planet and telling a beautiful story of culture along the way.
We’re long-term supporters of Dan and we’re proud to share inspiring stories of individuals living out their business dreams.
We took 5 with Dan:
Being a part of a hotel group that is also focused on sustainability and provides me with a platform to share the lens of modern Australian cuisine.
I have always spoken quite a bit about Australia when I have a media opportunity and to now have the chance to share unique experiences that tell the story of our country here in the US is incredible.
It fits so well, the styles are epic and it fits exactly what my team and I are always looking for in terms of branding. Plus Mum thinks I look handsome!
Chicken shop chicken! So much so that I had to put it on my menu at The Osprey.
It was incredible to set a new challenge. I ran something like 60+ miles but couldn’t finish due to injury. I’ll be back to repeat next year for sure!
We love to see Dan Churchill bringing a slice of Australia to Brooklyn with his innovative kitchen creations at The Osprey within the 1 Hotel this summer. With a focus on sustainability, plant-based dishes and a touch of Australia, Dan’s new venture not only tantalizes taste buds but also has a conscious sustainability focus.
While Dan may be far from his homeland, his love for Australia remains evident, especially through his menu which features cherished Australian favorites like chicken shop chicken and fries. We can’t wait to step inside The Osprey and try it!
We look forward to seeing what delicious stories he continues to cook up in the future.
Dan Churchill takes over The Osprey kitchen from July through September 2023.
