Albee Lee 2023 Winner

The Breakthrough Talent award is handed to someone who’s stepped into a leadership role, perhaps for the very first time, and excelled in it. These words define Albee Lee, who after a long stint in the brigade at Wills Domain has found her element running the kitchen under Jed Gerrard, with owner Darren Haunold praising her confidence, commitment to craft and the exponential personal growth she’s made since taking on the role. Wills owes no small part of its continued excellence to Lee’s steady hands, and the future looks blinding.
