MFWF – Jacqui & Julia


To celebrate MFWF 2024, NOMAD Group Executive Chef Jacqui Challinor welcomes the imitable Julia Busuttil Nishimura into the Nomad Melbourne kitchen for one night only!

With their shared Maltese heritage and a love of good food, Julia & Jacqui together in the kitchen is an inevitable pairing fit for any Mediterranean food lover’s dreams.

The duo will deliver a set, share style menu reminiscent of the Maltese feasts they grew up eating, all cooked with the fire and smoke that NOMAD is known for.


“Every time I run into Julia, we talk about cooking together so I’m incredibly excited that we’re finally making it happen! I love the way Julia approaches food and connects with people, she’s such a warm soul and that translates into the food she cooks. Hopefully together we can give Maltese food a little moment in the spotlight!” JC
