The Rolling Dolmade is a combined effort between Matt Golinski and Owen Exton. Together they source quality local produce to create and delicious collection of handmade meze.

Matt Golinski, a native to the Sunshine Coast, completed his apprenticeship at Chevaliers Restaurant in Milton, Brisbane in 1994, before travelling around Australia and the world to broaden his culinary knowledge.
On his return from overseas, he moved back to the Sunshine Coast, and took up the position of head chef at Ricky Ricardos in Noosa, where he spent 6 years creating Mediterranean inspired menus with an emphasis on the use of local suppliers and producers. Matt is also the president of Slow Food Noosa.

Owen Exton grew up on a farm in central Victoria where everything the family ate was produced on the farm; milk and butter from the cow, fruit from the orchard, eggs from the chooks, vegies from the garden, lamb from the paddock, together with his mum’s famous preserves made for some amazing dinners. His introduction to hospitality started at Karen Dossers, The Parlour and Pantry in Beechworth, North-East Victoria where the daily changing menus focused on regional seasonal produce. After completing his apprenticeship Owen moved to Melbourne and discovered modern Italian food at Donovan’s Restaurant on St. Kilda beach. Learning to use ingredients simply and with respect. Searching for new dining experiences he travelled to South America, searching through markets in small towns from the Andes to the beaches of Brazil eventually ending up in Noosa where at Ricky Ricardo’s he developed an understanding about the food of the countries surrounding the Meditteranean.
Together Matt and Owen have established the Rolling Dolmade, the focus being on quality handmade meze made using the very best quality ingredients sourced locally wherever possible.
Something quite exciting and new is their catering service where they will host a dinner party of up to 12 peoples in your own home or holiday apartment. They will bring everything from the cutlery to the food allowing you to sit back and enjoy a Sunshine Coast Food Experience of locally sourced, exquisitely constructed meals.
The Rolling Dolmade endeavours to change the way diners feel about catering forever.
