Jess Gauci

Editor - Syd & Melb

Jess' passion for hospitality grew from the moment she started working in fine dining restaurants while studying at university. Her favourite kind of restaurant is one that's dimly lit, feels like a small bar, and boasts burrata, Crudo, and tartare on the menu. She is also defenseless against Spanish tempranillo.
