About Chef Will Cowper

William Cowper is Head Chef at the newly opened OTTO Brisbane, sister restaurant to the iconic OTTO Sydney, which overlooks the Brisbane River to the Story Bridge.

OTTO Brisbane serves the food that people love to eat; Italian cuisine using fresh seasonal ingredients, taking influence from the southern regions of Italy to suit the warmer Queensland climate. Chef Will’s food at OTTO is unashamedly simple – fresh, seasonal and produce-driven, letting the ingredients speak for themselves. In truly embracing OTTO’s move to Queensland, Will has developed close relationships with local producers, working alongside them to ensure OTTO uses the best produce available. Will is passionate about not only the food OTTO serves, but supporting farmers and growers in the wider Queensland region.

In the first year of opening, OTTO was named Good Food’s Best New Restaurant in Brisbane and his Strawberry Panna Cotta was named in Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Desserts of the Year.
