About Colin

Born in Dublin and trained by the legendary Raymond Blanc, Colin Fassnidge was the Executive Chef at the Four in Hand for over ten years.

Colin’s creative yet refined take on the nose-to-tail food philosophy turned this unassuming pub dining room into an awarded and celebrated dining destination, listed in:

  • Gourmet Traveller’s Top 50
  • Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide – 2 Hats
  • Australian Financial Review’s Top 100

Colin’s second venture, 4Fourteen, reimagines family meals that he had in his youth, and  the  recently opened Banksia (at the Banksia Hotel) sees him return to his love of pub dining.

Colin’s opinions and honesty led him to appear as a judge on Channel 7’s ratings winner ‘My Kitchen Rules’.

His profile as a no-nonsense chef keeps growing and his following expanding, which has led to him putting out his own show ‘Colin’s Ireland’ and the cookbook ‘Four Kitchens’ (published by Random House).

You’ve got to ask yourself, what’s next for Colin Fassnidge?
