Passionate chef focussing on maximising seasonal ingredients with some modern techniques
I have been a professional chef for the last 8 years. I started my apprenticeship in Brisbane, in Australia and once finished I moved to the culinary capital, Melbourne. In Melbourne I worked as sous chef for two years in a restaurant focussing in local produce and hand made pasta, which is where my passion lies. I’ve travelled around India and Thailand, with the main focus of travelling there being food, as I love their ingredients and cooking. I now have been working in a restaurant in Amsterdam which focuses on minimising waste, which has given me many opportunities and encouraged a lot innovation:
For me, cooking is...

Chef Christopher's reviews
Christopher was awesome! Each dish he presented was better than the previous one. He was super professional throughout and we had a great time with fun conversations.
I highly recommend Christopher to everyone. His dishes are very technical, very tasty and very well thought off. I would have Christopher back for our future dinners without any doubt.
Thanks a lot, Christopher for the amazing food, conversation and the experience.

We are so happy to have had Chris prepare us an amazing 4 course meal for our anniversary. Chris was very professional and punctual, but also his friendly and outgoing personality made the experience perfect. Not to mention, his modern French dishes were unique and delicious! We would highly recommend Chris for giving you a restaurant quality experience at home, especially during Corona times. Thank you Chris for making our anniversary special!

Christopher prepared for us 4-course dinner. He arrived on time, and straight away dived into preparing us Japanese dinner. We were surprise about the good and interesting mixture of flavours of all dishes (they were vegan), especially we loved the red cabbage dish! What he made for us was delicious!
Chris once again, thank you for the lovely meals and your time!
