A few words from Manny's Catering

Emmanuel "Manny" Cohergne was born and chef trained in France.

As a young Chef with a passion for fine food and travel, Manny soon moved across the channel to England, working under the watchful eye of celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay. Not long before his 21st birthday, Manny succeeded in securing a position at the prestigious Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, a 2 Michelin star restaurant in Dublin, Ireland.

After spending over 3 years as a Chef onboard luxury cruises, Manny returned to Ireland and became Head Chef of Castle Grove Hotel in Letterkenny, winning awards for the hotel and became the weekly food writer for the Donegal news at the age of 24.

Wanting to explore the world further, Manny arrived in Sydney in 2012 and became Head Chef of The Winery, a busy restaurant in Surry Hills before taking on a bigger challenge as Head Chef of the Lorne Beach Pavilion, running both a café kitchen during the day and a fine dining restaurant at night. Here again, Manny flourished winning multiple awards and secured a final spot on the Golden Plate Awards in the Best Chef and Best Casual Dining Competition.

Manny moved interstate to Queensland after securing a job as Chef de Cuisine at the internationally renowned 5* hotel PALAZZO VERSACE on the Gold Coast before family commitments saw him return to France indefinitely.

Returning from France to the Gold Coast, Manny set his sights on small business. Starting L'ESCARGOT French Cuisine, offering a range of boutique products such as French Provencal Vinaigrettes and French Marinated Olives.

Amazing!! You have to try Chef Manny’s services!
We have used Manny as a private chef for our family at least 10 times. His outstanding food is a perfect reflection of his skill and passion. He is always professional and a pleasure to have in our home. He always goes above and beyond to impress! I have recommended his high quality services to many friends and family and will continue to use him. Thank you Chef Manny!


Manny’s food is seriously tasteful!!
From the minute I picked up the phone until the end of the conversation manny went above and beyond From times to what to cook we organised a private dinner I couldn’t be happier with the service we received the taste and quality of the food and the overall experience , will happily recommend him and can’t wait to do it again! 5 stars from us thanks manny was so nice to meet you


From the initial phone call through to the final dessert, my experience with Chef Manny from Manny's Catering was the most memorable experience of all time!
Chef Manny's thoughtfulness, patience and guidance in helping me to choose the right menu for the occasion, made me feel at ease right from the start.
He introduced me to a whole new world of tastes and flavours throughout the entire "Degustation" menu (many for the very first time), with each and every personal masterpiece that was presented to the table, showcasing his amazing talent and passionate commitment to ensuring I had an exceptional dining experience.
Chef Manny's passion, courtesy, professionalism, food artistry, exquisite presentation, creative flair and his extraordinary knowledge of food pairing was exemplary and made me appreciate how lucky I was to be in the company of a real Artisan. I now understand what great food is.
It was an absolute honour and pleasure to have Chef Manny cater for the evening. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him as the ultimate choice as your next Private Chef and am 100% confident that he will gain considerable and widespread respect, applause and admiration from his peers and customers, alike.

Thank You, Chef!


Beautiful and sophisticated
Our family have used him a number of times and Last night my husband and I had a couple of friends over and we did the 7 course degustation Menu (which he generously added two extra dishes and made it 9 course)
Every dish was made with love and elegance. It was super delicious and our friends were very impressed! It was so easy having him come to us, we could enjoy our night without having to worry about a thing.
Manny is very professional and you can tell he loves what he does.
We will definitely use him again and I would highly recommend.


Fantastic food, service, affordable and professional. I can highly recommended!!

Amazing chef, amazing service
We organised a Xmas in July party for our residents (retirement village) and Mannys choice of menu appealed and price was excellent. From booking to the evening nothing was too much trouble and he made it all so easy. The meals were well presented and very tasty. Thank you Manny you made the night a great success, we will definitely be using your services again and referring you to others. Many thanks Karen Brown


GREAT FOOD, excellent service, friendly staff. What more do you want
Chef Manny has catered for my daughters wedding, as well as other functions I have attended. His food is always delicious, fresh and well presented. Nothing is too much trouble for him to cater for special diets etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Manny to anyone seeking a professional catering service.
His venue of Gainsborough Greens Golf Club is a beautiful setting for any function and the deck area is a great place to sit and relax looking over the lake and the course, enjoy a drink and something to eat. Even if you are looking to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends, a birthday party or a wedding you won't be disappointed.
