I’m in awe of what @chefdusto does @thestargoldcoast he manages a massive organisation yet remains calm and gets on the line in the kitchen. What a terrific example to the young chefs, more leaders like this are needed. #chefslife #executivechef #greatexample

The pussy cats seem unimpressed with their new digs, after running around the rural countryside now it’s back to smaller spaces. A few days in their enclosure before they can roam a bit. Perhaps they’ll go for a dip in the river?!?! #chefslife🔪 #pussycats #movinghouse

Thank you so very much to all my mentors and encouragers over the last 6 months, I treasure your warm friendships and inputs. My advice to others is: Don’t settle.....follow your dreams. Don’t listen to those who won’t help. Find mentors who can guide you. Find your own dreams and reality. Surprise yourself with what you can really achieve if you have to. 6 months ago I left a secure employment, a comfortable accommodation and known lifestyle to pursue a “silly” dream. 2 months later I became a “consultant chef” an adviser to industry, I was told “it would be organic” it was, it did work, beyond my wildest dreams. Now is always the right time to “take a punt” tomorrow might not show up!! #chefslife🔪 #dreams #mentors #mentorship #takeapunt #nowistherighttime

It was a trip down memory lane today, I caught up with chef @mark_fitzgerald1 in Noosa. Mark started his chef apprenticeship with me at The Manor House Balmain in 1990, I hadn’t seen him for 26 years, so good to see that he’s still cooking. #chefslife🔪 #apprenticechef #manorhousebalmain #noosa #catchup

It’s terrific to see Abby @a.goodwin_ giving back to the young chefs of tomorrow. She has joined the ACF Young Chefs Association and then spent her free time teaching kids to cook and spoke to them about why being a chef is so great. Young chefs really do rule, believe it and it will happen!! #chefslife🔪 #youngchefsrule #youngpeople #acfycc #internationalchefsday2018
