I have 20+ years experience with national and regional awards in my Greek cooking.

Production kitchen franchised brand associations with corporate structure my base modeling enabled global supply of products.

I have spent over 20 years holding the title “Chef” after my childhood kitchen experiences transformed fun to 2 partime jobs for 3 years of simultaneous cafe and restaurant work distracted me from puberty. Tertiary education in professional cooking fused new trained skills with the business systems impressed in my mind from kitchenhand duty, and my interest in functionality and ergonomics grew with my passion for the chemistry of cooking.
I began progressing up kitchen command in a popular Greek restaurant (Yannis) during which Awards in our cuisine came during my first Head chef appointment. Intergrated into a larger company group my employer offered me to become involved in expansion by design and build of various food business formats. The Restaurant fabrication had to be designed to optimize every aspect in product delivery so I eagerly contributed my obsession of ergonomic flow, with safety and cleaning systems. Kitchen design was dedicated to seamless integration of stock control preparation/service flow with electronic management system inclusion of POS and stock reconciliation HACCPT documents giving real time food cost as service progresses. SOP and training education were drawn up after 6 months so they were refined by our trading and documented to enable franchise standardization.
2010 was in New Zealand for 4 years during which I put my build experience into a chain of cafes which became 11 separate outlets in 2 years. The breakfast service became a challenge between stores with cabinet food and salads all made by the one chef in between orders. Despite my distaste for early morning starts I enjoyed the satisfaction of busy days especially if the store was the highest in turnover and singlehanded mothers day service challenged sanity.
2014 was a change to FIFO as Origin Energy Coal Seam Gas needed chefs . The offer of special training in OHSA, safety and inductions was free education and the different setting of remote work kept my interest up. The paperwork was like HACCPT on steroids, and my knowledge in workplace safety became clinical.
My transition to HAYS provided contracts in Military secured and unsecured
and Rio Tinto camp placement..
