Executive Chef Jordan Staniford at Crystalbrook Byron.

Crystalbrook Byron continues its sustainable and ever-evolving culinary journey with two new chef appointments and exciting new menu developments. Jordan Staniford joins the resort as Executive Chef and Clement Fouquere as Executive Sous Chef.

A continuation of the resort’s commitment to offering locally sourced and sustainable dining, Staniford’s new menus will highlight seasonal produce, ranging from light bites, including: char-grilled local peppers, guindilla chilli and whipped local macadamia, to more substantial dishes.

‘Our food is designed to be social and approachable, uncomplicated and super tasty, using the absolute best produce we can get our hands on,’ says Jordan. ‘The flavours are fresh and playful.’

Standout dishes include the vegan oyster mushroom and white bean ceviche, char-grilled Yamba prawns with karkalla and chilli, and Bangalow sweet pork with West Australian truffle. For the sweet tooths, it’s hard to pass over the local honey sponge served with yuzu curd, white chocolate honeycomb and a ginger tea sorbet. There’s also no shortage of plant-based dishes allowing guests to eat consciously while savouring the garden-fresh flavours.

During the winter months, locals can also take advantage of the resort’s heated infinity pool. ‘Anyone dining with us for lunch will get a pool pass so they can enjoy the full resort experience,’ said Jordan. ‘We also have our Veggies and Vino set menu on Wednesdays and our Market Menu on Thursdays. There’s always something happening.’

Jordan’s accomplished career spans Vietnam, the Mediterranean, Sydney, and recently, Byron Bay. Clement has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants across France and was awarded the distinguished pastry internship at the world-renowned Clos des Sens restaurant.

Open to both resort and outside guests, Crystalbrook Byron offers a choice of nature-focused areas to wine, dine and delight. The main restaurant, Forest – named for the lush rainforest oasis that it overlooks – serves breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside an international and local wine list featuring over 30 sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines.

The breezy, shaded Verandah bar provides the perfect place to decompress and relax, cocktail in hand. With views of the glittering infinity swimming pool and rainforest beyond, the Verandah offers laidback dining and is a favourite hangout among locals.

Crystalbrook Byron. 77–97 Broken Head Rd, Byron Bay.
