Welcome to LavaSalt.
By far, this has been my story..
Cooking has been my joy and passion since 1996. I was immersed in a cuisine and culture that believed cooking came from the heart. I believe without zeal and belief, a dish is like planet earth without oxygen. Having served over 16 years in kitchen operations and progressed into Executive Chef/Chef-de-Cuisine roles for the past 8 years, I felt the need to forge a path of teaching and mentoring young chefs in my brigade as well as consult in various sectors of the food industry.
This is why I have had the privilege to be a certified VET work place assessor and culinary trainer at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Culinary institute, Melbourne, Australia. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the leading chefs in the industry throughout Australasia and represent Australia at AIBX 2020 as chef ambassador for Austrade in various activations for Australian businesses overseas. This keeps me in good stead to draw on real experiences.
As the “Executive Chef of the Year “, Victoria in 2013 I began to develop a philosophy and approach to cooking as one of creativity and depth of flavour. My specialisations include Australasian cuisine, using indigenous ingredients , street food, molecular gastronomy, vegan, gluten free and modern French cookery.
I want to share those valuable lessons learnt over the years by sharing my recipes, skills and experiences to the enthusiastic culinary cook. Hence why I love collaborating with leading chefs all over the world creating bespoke pop ups and themed culinary events.
Chefs are artists and cooking is an expression of their inbuilt creative streak that manifests itself on a plate

Thank you so much for making last week happen. The way you managed those students to meet industry standards was very impressive, and the kids all thoroughly enjoyed it, despite it being such demanding physical hard work. I know the school was impressed, the comments about the quality of the food were of the highest order. Also your warm and friendly personality made working with you very easy, and I am so happy that you got satisfaction from the experience as well.
