My experience goes back fifty-three years in the hospitality industry, as a Chef, Chef Instructor at T.A.F.E. and several food related businesses which I have owned and operated. My passion is cooking and the greatest satisfaction I gain is from imparting the knowledge and skills I have, onto people who share the same passion for cooking and entertaining.

I have represented Australia in the world-renowned Culinary Olympics in Germany and have won close to fifty medals, thirty-nine of them gold, in various cooking competitions in Australia and overseas.

Once you have mastered the basic skills of the different methods
of cooking you will only be restricted by the bounds of your imagination. Styles and ingredients are constantly changing, and the Olive Tree Cooking School can be your source of knowledge to remain up to date with both of these.
