Andrew & Alice are two chefs with a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience.
They love working with people of all ages to encourage and nurture a love of food with a particular focus on local and sustainable produce.
Alice and Andrew have had a shared love of everything food for many years, having met in the heat of Stefano Manfredi’s Sydney kitchen. They travelled to London where they worked for UK Masterchef judge, John Torode, travelled and ate their way through Europe.
Returning to Sydney they opened their first restaurant Paua in Surry Hills which achieved great success. On they moved to Melbourne working for many years for the two cities best caterers The Big Group and Damn Fine Food before the country life came a calling.
In the central victorian town of Castlemaine they managed The New Northern, a boutique hotel and restaurant.
Back to Andrew’s homeland, New Zealand, for 4 years to run the kitchens at the renowned Craggy Range Winery and for Alice as the hospitality Manager of the Hawkes Bay Arts Festival. Alice was instrumental in the development and facilitation of The Cook and Grow Project, school holiday programs and back to basic cooking classes for students in Teen Parent Units and people accessing the food bank through the Salvation Army.
Alice and Andrew caught the bug again and opened their second restaurant and catering company The Good Table.
Having now moved back to Alice’s home South Australia they have settled in the Barossa valley with a desire to continue their culinary journey.
