Hamish Ingham in the kitchen at Banksii

Banksii chef Hamish Ingham loves the space he's created down at Barangaroo. "It feels really comfortable, warm and inviting. The colours are beautiful," he says. "We've based the room's design on the colours of the gumtree; blues, pinks and greys to reflect the trunk of the tree. It's a palatte that works really nicely by the water." Ingham's menu reflects the botanical side of the vermouth that his wife, Rebecca's basing her cocktail menu around. He's aiming for an approachable and rustic focus with most dishes made for sharing.
