My first memory of being in the kitchen and around food is baking with my mother on weekends for family visits, and the feeling of creating something beautiful from basic ingredients still amazes me. My father was also hugely passionate about food and loved to cook, he made great stocks and soups! When it came to choose my career, there was no question. I love food, I love cooking, it was a natural fit.

Picking up extremely fresh snapper or the occasional kingfish from “Apatu Aqua,” a small longline fishing company in my hometown. Yuzu citrus, straight from my garden is spraying free and local.
