Meet the chef

Executive Chef Josh Pelham

In April 2022 the Victorian Racing Club announced a partnership with Crown managing the hospitality venues at Flemington Racecourse, the home of the Lexus Melbourne Cup. Filling the role of Executive Chef for some 30 venues across Flemington’s precinct and facilities, is well-seasoned Aussie Chef Josh Pelham. 

It’s been a long and winding road to get here for the South Australian-born Chef who’s first childhood food memory was a “mind-blowing caramel popcorn”. Cutting his teeth working in North Fitzroy’s two-hatted institution Matteo and with George Calombaris at Fenix, Pelham quickly realised that being a Chef was going to be his lifelong journey.

Now, after an international journey in France looking after five boutique chalets in Chamonix and cooking for celebrities aboard a super yacht, and a short period back home as Executive Chef across Caulfield, Sandown and Mornington for the Melbourne Racing Club, Pelham accepted the role with Crown to be Executive Chef for the Victorian Racing Club.

“At VRC, I want to instil a more fresh and contemporary approach to dining. The focus is on the quality of the ingredients and the flavour. We are also looking to bring some fun and fresh new ideas to the retail side of the offering.”
