Finally decided to join in

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody,

I have been a long time lurker and finally decided to join the Cheftalk. I left Europe for US in 2005 and left US for Australia in 2010. Currently I am the Executive Chef of a winery in picturesque Hunter Valley , NSW. I have worked as an Executive chef in 2 continents , I have lot of high end Hotel , private club and fine dining restaurant experience.

I was really fortunate enough to be mentored by a 3 Michelin star restaurants former sous chef and other 2 well regarded , award winning chefs. Now I am trying to give back as much as I know to my cooks and apprentices.

Having worked with "old school" chefs in really high stress environenmets I am hoping that my staff are not going through what I have gone through.

I am a big fan of Japanese Knives, sustainable food , food history  and self sufficiency ( We are working on our onsite farm for my Restaurant now , I have fresh supply of eggs everyday )

I am hoping to contribute to this board and also hope to learn new things as well


Best Regards,

Aloha, Welcome to Chef Talk.

A lurker?  Well, former anyway. 

I gotta’ tell you, I too have learned so much here at CT, I just love it! 

You know already how it works around here then, right?  Should you have questions in regards to the site itself, just post them in the Feedback & Suggestion Forum.  Maybe you could pop by the Students forums from time to time and share your wealth of knowledge with them.  I hope to some of your work in the Galleries soon as well as hear more about the winery and the restaurant, it sounds lovely.
