SHUNICHI TANABE

Head chef & owner

Chef Shun was born in Tokyo, Japan, where he spent a decade honing his culinary skills and techniques under the guidance of the strict master chefs at several traditional Japanese KAISEKI cuisine restaurants. 

During this period, he participated in local culinary competitions where his talent as an emerging, young chef was recognised, winning him a number of awards.

 

He moved to Australia in 2002, he was inspired by some great chefs he met here, as well as local fresh produce he has never seen before. He began to explore the idea of combinining his Japanese cuisine background, with European culinary technique, using Australian locally source ingredients.
