Head Chef Max Stephenson Slate Restaurant Pikes Wines Clare
SLATE Restaurant Head Chef, Max Stephenson, comes to us with a wealth of experience after 5 years as Executive Sous Chef at Hatted Restaurant The Source at MONA.

Our Philosophy

SLATE is at the heart of everything we do at Pikes. Our vineyards sit on an ancient bed of 500 million-year-old stone that has been our foundation and the critical element in shaping the wines we produce.

The Philosophy at SLATE Restaurant is to simply showcase our wines accompanied by the amazing produce that is grown in and around our region.

“The farmer to chef process is very important to me. For us to cook the food, someone has had to put a lot of effort into growing it. I love the story behind that and I want their story reflected in my food. Treat the food with respect and understand it for what it is and where it’s come from.”
