Starting his apprenticeship at 15, James has gained experience from many different kitchens. From pubs, to restaurants and catering companies, which has given him a wealth of experience to draw from. Now cooking for a brewery, he is learning more about beer and how to incorporate it into his cooking.

James, and his kitchen crew, pride themselves on providing our guests with only the best locally sourced produce from the Maleny and Sunshine Coast Hinterland Regions. Maleny is a small community, and this shows not only through our relationships with our guests and suppliers but also through the partnerships that we have made with our food producers. Follow the link to read more about our partnership with Ken at Maleny Wagyu.
