Joanne is our Operational Support Head Chef and manages and runs our Chef Training Programme. She is currently taking some time out to travel and learn even more about the fabulous world of food!
Here is just a taster what the globetrotting gourmand has sampled so far:
“My trip started with a street food tour of Hong Kong. Here I learning about the local café and restaurant culture as well as picking up some insider tips on ingredients. I sampled even more street food in Thailand before enrolling in a cooking class where I learned all about local ingredients and authentic cookery methods. Next up was Penang in Malaysia where I immersed myself in the culinary scene, trying out food from local vendors, visiting a few restaurants and checking out some cafés.”
Joanne is jetting off down under to Australia next, with a visit to the foodie hotspot of Melbourne to sample some of the much-lauded café culture, and check out a few 1-2 Chef Hat-awarded spots (the equivalent to our Michelin Stars). Following that it’s on to New Zealand’s green pastures, then a stop off in the beautiful country of Fiji, before an epic road trip up West Coast America. We can’t wait to hear about what she eats next!
