Get to know me better
Chef with a passion for good food and entertaining
I started cooking dinners for my family at 8 yrs old and never looked back. I have worked in professional kitchens since I was 16 and finished my training in five star hotels, castles and country manors working with talented French and European chefs throughout the United Kingdom.
Returning to New Zealand, I worked with top New Zealand Chefs, before relocating to Australia and working in 5 star hotels and fine dining restaurants in Sydney, Airlie Beach, and Perth before finding myself in Port Douglas. After 2 years as Executive Chef at both the Peppers Beach Club & Spa and then Nautilus Restaurant,
I now devote my time to producing the finest food and events for my personal clients.
All facets of your event will be lovingly tailored to suit any occasion, providing you with a hassle free service and more time for you to enjoy!
For me, cooking is...
my life-long hobby and career.
I learned to cook at...
home. I fine tuned my cooking by travelling.
A role model in the kitchen is...
