Hope St Radio

Upcoming Classes:

Ellie is hosting a Sundowner Session at Sydney Seafood School this May. Head to the Book an Experience page to buy tickets.

Ellie Bouhadana is an acclaimed self-taught chef who honed her skills in events and restaurants in Melbourne. She gained popularity during the city’s two and a half years of lockdown by creating packages of fresh focaccia and handmade pasta, delivering them to 200 customers weekly.

Ellie's success led her to host summer pop-up events and become the head chef at Hope St Radio, a wine bar and radio station named by Timeout Magazine as the ‘third coolest bar in the world’.

Inspired by her Moroccan and Eastern European Jewish heritage and her love of Mediterranean cuisine, her menu reflects her roots, passions and family traditions. Notably, Hope St Radio received acclaim from the Good Food Guide who awarded them an impressive 4/5 stars, and The Age Good Food Guide honoured them with a coveted Chef’s Hat, solidifying its reputation as a culinary destination and celebrating the unique and vibrant experience Ellie has created for her guests.
