I’ve always been fascinated by food and its power to bring people together.
My career as a chef began at the fine dining restaurant, Aqua Dining, which at the time was a prestigious one hat restaurant. I started off as a junior chef and was fortunate to work alongside some very talented people. I watched, I learned, I worked hard and with sheer determination I rose quickly through the ranks.
In 2015, I took the leap of faith and moved from Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches to Byron Bay, to follow my dream of running my own food based business and being more connected with the land. I feel very lucky to be able to live in an region that produces such an abundance of exceptional produce and share my passion for local, seasonal produce across all our menus and events.
Being able to combine my love of cooking and feeding people with my experience in event management is truly a dream come true. At Taste Byron Bay, we offer a range of services including; Team Building Events, Event Planning, Catering, Private Dining, Food Tours, Cooking Classes and Gift Bags. My core focus in everything we do at Taste Byron Bay, is on using quality local ingredients that are prepared and cooked with love.
For me, the best meals are those shared with family and friends; everyone sitting down together to laugh, to tell stories and to celebrate great food.
