Tim Stanton

Born: 

Sydney. 

Have you always wanted to be a Chef? 

Yes, pretty much from a young age. My Mum has owned a café for 15 years in the Blue Mountains, just west of Sydney and my Grandfather was a Michelin starred Chef from France. 

How would you define your style? 

Refined, simple food. 

What is your feature flavour these days? 

I don’t really have one, I usually just work with seasonal produce. 

Obsessive compulsive about? 

Plating, from smears to garnish. 

Your greatest culinary inspirations/influences: 

Chef, John Slaughter from Fairmont Resort and the great, Anthony Bourdain. 

What do you love about this business? 

That fact that from the top of the business to the bottom, everyone shows support for the love we have for food in the kitchen.

An ingredient you can’t live without? 

Salt for sure, I have been told I season a little heavy… haha!

Most ‘eyebrow raising’ menu item? 

Dessert board – it always shocks the quests when it arrives at the table, it also usually gets the most attention on social media. 

Signature dish: 

Spaghetti Marinara with bay prawns, spring bay mussels, fish, garlic and chilli.
