As a son and grandson of chefs, the love of cooking came naturally to a young Neil, and at the age of 14 became a life focus. Having completed his apprenticeship in Michelin star restaurants in England, the international culinary world was a natural progression, and allowed Neil to explore both the world, and the food industry. This led to becoming a personal chef to the Crown Prince of Bahrain, and many varied positions within the industry.

Making the move to Australia in 1999, Neil was drawn to the frenetic energy of Melbourne restaurants, including Le restaurant. Ultimately his love for the countryside led him to the Yarra Valley, where he now enjoys raising his young family and exploring the amazing local produce that the area has to offer.

Neil’s philosophy towards food is simple – regional, seasonal, with a British accent. Using his experience from his classical training, mixed with the influences of worldwide cuisine, Neil’s focus is on producing food that represents the area by using locally grown produce and suppliers.
