Short bioEarly in my career, I won the Thierry Marx career development award. This enabled me to travel to France and work in a 2 Michelin starred restaurant for 2 months. After my time working, I was then able to spend a couple of weeks travelling around Paris and eating at some incredible restaurants.

I enjoy working with seasonal produce. For the past 5 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work in restaurants that have more of a focus on using seasonal produce from local suppliers. Because of this, I’ve had the opportunity to build many lasting relationships with local suppliers on top of being able to work with some amazing produce.
My first kitchen job was as a kitchen hand. After a week of doing this job, my head chef suggested I should look into doing an apprenticeship. The rest is history.
My inspirations come from cooking locally and seasonally. Having built relationships with many great small producers, I’m able to access some truly exceptional produce.
FavouritesThe dish was pork cotechino, braised red cabbage, celeriac puree, apple cider sauce. Pork cotechino is an Italian style sausage that contains almost 40% pig skin and is then slowly braised to give the sausage a gelatinous texture. We purchased in whole pigs to create these sausages. We butchered the pigs in house as well as made the sausage. With regard to the braised red cabbage before braising the cabbage we first fermented the it for 3 days like sauerkraut to start breaking down the cabbage and bring it a slight sourness that would cut through the richness of the sausage. The dish was brought together with a cider based sauce.
