Get to know me better

Keep it fresh, keep it colourful and let the produce do the work for you

I'm May, I am a professional chef, based in Sydney and Melbourne. I have worked in London, Paris and Denmark. While in Paris I trained with world-renowned Master Baker Gontran Cherrier and developed my foundation cooking skills and worked in some of the city's most celebrated restaurants such as La Cloche D'or before relocating to Australia where I have worked in some of Sydney's top restaurants including The Butler, in Potts Point.

I have had the opportunity to work in some great restaurants for for some fantastic clients. This has allowed me to push my ideas and my interpretation of good food which is – colour, vibrancy, creativity, flavour and passion.

Chef May was beyond our expectations. She was very prompt at replying prior to arriving which made us feel secure and certain about the entire process. All her dishes were well presented and filled with flavor. Chef May was friendly and gave us some great laughs that night. I cannot wait to have Chef May return to our home very soon.
