Hi everyone, Just a short blurb on me, look forward to meeting more people on here. I graduated from culinary school 5 years ago, after being an at home mum. My children have since flown the coop. Currently I do private chef work in very high end luxury properties, here in NZ. I got the job while i was at the culinary school from one of the tutors who trained me, I worked along side of him for 2 years, and then he decided to leave, i therefore took the head chef role. Being absolutely terrified, I took on the challenge and 4 seasons later Im still here. I have learnt so much along the way, and a very lonely road, while still maintaining that high standard and learning to roll with how this private catering works, as no 2 jobs are the same. I have done plenty of research, research and more research. Im not the greatest in thinking of shit hot dishes on the spot, but over time i can bring them together. Along with every other challenge, I now have a young chef under me whom Im teaching to this level, its been draining and has tested me to my limits at times. Im very passionate about my work and as a lot of our guests say they see that in my food that I present. I work for amazing owners and have the freedom to use any ingredient I so wish to use. Have an amazing day.
