About Us

Global Chefs

Our team of passionate chefs and food experts are from all around the world and now living on Norfolk Island to create the best cooking school in paradise.

Love to Cook

We love food and cooking so much that we want to show you how to do it, and share all our experiences from having worked in some of the best restaurants around the world.

Preserving Culture

There’s so much meaning and tradition with different cuisines, we want to pass that knowledge onto future generations and not lose it forever.

Plate to Farm

As cooks we can influence what farmers grow and what gets stocked at the store. Buy, cook and eat local, organic, ethical, sustainable, we can change the world!

Chef/Founder/Teacher

Julien Vasseur

Hailing from France with 20 years of experience in top restaurant kitchens around the world, Chef Julien helped start up two amazing cooking schools in Sydney and has now settled on Norfolk Island to open the best cooking school yet.


Julien grew up in the French countryside of Alsace, always surrounded by farm animals, vegetable gardens, and rustic family cooking as a child. After attending one of France’s best culinary schools, he spent many years working his way up the top kitchens in Switzerland. Being a young motivated chef, he went onto travel around the world discovering new and exciting cuisines from Asia, The Americas and finally settling in Australia. He has worked as head chef in many restaurants and private chef for elite families in Los Angeles and Sydney.


“Life’s too short for bad food. We all deserve the best nature has to offer. I’ve spent the last 18 years learning how to best prepare, enjoy, and respect an incredible variety of ingredients, and I want to pass that knowledge on to everyone!” – Julien Vasseur
