What is your cooking experience? I had a little bit of professional training early on in my career, and I can still remember which end of the knife to hold, but that is about it.
What would your cooking signature dish be? Square Eggs – courtesy of Intermediate School Home Economics.
Why are you cooking to help disadvantaged Canterbury children get a fair start in education?
For me to go outside of my comfort zone for one night is nothing compared to the conditions many young people face every day. I’m only too happy to try and help.
What does being part of Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose mean to you and your organisation?
We have many initiatives in place to give back to the community, and this is very much part of our corporate philosophy. This event gives me an opportunity to personally put myself out there and demonstrate to our team that by getting involved we can help make a difference.
How can the general public help you?
