The widespread popularity of Arabian-style food in Melbourne can be attributed to one man: Greg Malouf.

In the past decade, no other chef has exerted such a singular, widespread and identifiable culinary influence on any Australian city.

Malouf, [of ] the Collins Street restaurant Mo Mo, is responsible for de-ethnicising Middle Eastern food, taking it out of the migrant enclaves in the ’burbs and contemporising it, elevating it to another level, making it desirable and exciting, giving it

contemporary presentation while respecting the integrity of its flavours.

The recipes? Irresistible.

Herald Sun, 2005

The Malouf's take on food is different enough to make even

the most blasé of home cooks sit up and take notice.
