In 2012 Tanja took the challenge to relocate to Sydney to become the Executive Chef for Swissôtel Sydney, at that time, the only female Executive Chef in a 5 star hotel in Australia.

Tanja works at a popular function venue in Brisbane which blends in well with her private chef commitments.

Chef Tanja's reviews

4.9/ 5

Tanja prepared the most delicious menu for my husband’s 40th birthday. She was accommodating, reliable and treated our home and our kitchen with such respect. Our guests were thrilled with the quality of the food prepared, and the taste was second to none. Thank you Tanja for making a milestone celebration even more so special with your incredible talent & allowing Mike and I to enjoy the time with our friends.
