Private Chef In Burbush

Chef Lerryn Hawken

Get to know me better

Passionate chef who loves new techniques just as much as indigenous foods and methods

21 years as a professional chef in some of the world's best kitchens, still evolving my own true style of cooking, which is now a mix of modern fine dining and indigenous cooking, with a solid foraging and local ingredient foundation.

I have been lucky enough to have received a equal 1st place in fine dining in the nz metro restaurant awards a few years back.

More about me

For me, cooking is...

My life, my business allows me to serve a variety of foods and not pigeon hole me to one style or format

I learned to cook at...

Waikato polytechnic, but they where teaching me lies... so I learnt from some of the best chefs instead.. but I'm still learning

A role model in the kitchen is...

All of the greats, and my grandad

A cooking secret...

Having no secrets, I am more than happy to explain, teach and have a laugh while I prepare and plate dinner
