In secondary school I found my passion in cooking by doing “cookery” classes. 

I built up my knowledge from working various places with many different cooks from St. Vincent and other countries as well.

After having worked at Richmond Vale Academy for a couple of years I left to work somewhere else, but now I am happy to be back.
I look forward to meeting you and serving one of my soups or other dishes for you!
