I was born and raised in Perth, Australia. My journey in the hospitality industry started when I was 16. I started to work in hotels while I completed my degree in cookery. I was working alongside a lot of Asian Chefs which sparked my passion for Asian Cuisine.
After qualifying as a chef, I had moved to London to pursue my career at the Berkeley Hotel in Mayfair London. Working there was next level for me - dealing day in & day out with celebrities! That experience has taught me a lot about holding a high standard for everything that I do in the kitchen.
After that I moved to Vancouver Canada and started at Shangri-La Hotel where restaurant "Market" was operated by chef Jan George and I was cooking Asian inspired food. I enjoyed my time there and had learned as much as possible.
But soon it was time again for a change so I thought I would move to the country which is famous for "cheese & potatoes" - the Netherlands :) I was very fortunate to get offered a job at the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam just after it opened its doors. I had the role of working in the meeting & events department doing private dinners and cocktail parties for weddings etc.
However, after more than 15 years in the hotel industry, I thought it was time to start my own little business. All of a sudden, I have found myself looking at food trucks. Within a couple of months Sublime Food Company was set up in 2014 and I had started with private events, markets and corporate catering. Over the time I have got my regulars :) I have also been contacted by some large companies to start doing a couple days on their locations for the staff lunches which has become a fantastic outcome as well with loads of positive feedback and long queues. It is the dream of a food-truck owner, right?!
I am looking forward to bringing you more and more of our favorite dishes with our food truck that are freshly prepared in Sublime Asian Deli kitchen and spread the love for food!
