The story so far from gourmet internationally renowned chef and owner of Magic Mouthfuls...
Meet The Chef
I started my chef apprenticeship at the age of 18. After two years working as a waiter at the iconic Auckland Restaurant 'Harbourside' - where the food was the focus and the chefs showed a passion that fasinated me - I fell in LOVE!
I moved to Scotland and finished my training in five star hotels, castles and country manors working with talented French and European chefs.
Returning to New Zealand, I worked with top New Zealand Chefs, before gaining my first Head Chef role at 'Barossa' then moving on to the West Haven Yacht Club. I relocated to Australia and worked 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 clients.
My passion is using the freshest ingredients mixing traditional French methods with Asian flavours and a touch of molecular gastronomy.
Highlights in my career have seen me take out the title of 'Gourmet Gladiator' at the 2009 Port Douglas Carnivale and having a number of signature dishes published in the 'Great Chefs of Australia' cookbook series.
