Who is Pete?

Chef for 20 years, Paleo success story for 4, husband for 8, father for 6 and small business owner for 7.

“Life moves pretty fast! If you don’t stop and look around once in a while it just might pass you by” Ferris Bueller

If you asked me at age 17 where I’d be at age 37, I would have stared at you blankly and said: “Dead? After all, most rock stars die around 27 or so right?”

Thankfully I’m not and I’m incredibly thankful for all of life’s gifts so far – even though my rock star status never eventuated.

This is the space where I get to share all of the cooking secrets I’ve cultivated over the years. From master-chefs and home cooks, handed down through generations, spanning different cultures and cuisines.

In a world of convenience & fast, casual dining, a career spanning 5 starhotels to fine dining. In kitchens that could have been called dungeons, boot camps, mosh pits or saunas. 

These days you’ll find me developing  “Food With a Conscience” at my own slice of paradise, Caffe Republic on the beautiful Gold Coast of Australia.

I’m thrilled to be finally using my Chef powers for good.

I hope you find something interesting here.

I look forward to connecting – be sure to hit me up on any of the links if you have any questions or feedback.
