Head Chef - Tushar Sharma
My name is Tushar, I am very excited to have been appointed the new Head Chef position at Parkes Services Club.
My career started when I enrolled into a Bachelor's degree in Hospitality and Hotel Management in my home country of India.
Throughout my university studies, I have worked at two 5 star hotels where I gained extensive knowledge and experience rotating through several different departments. It was during this time that I found that my passion was in the kitchen and I applied to study a 2 year advanced Diploma of Culinary Arts at Le Cordon Bleu, Australia. While at Le Cordon Bleu, I learned all technical skills necessary to excel as a Chef, and the skills necessary to run a kitchen - menu engineering, food safety, finance/accounts and business administration. During this time, I worked at many different venues, ranging from pubs, to 3-hatted restaurants and establishments with various cuisines (Malaysian, Spanish, Indian, French, Contemporary/Fusion).
In 2018 my partner was offered a job at Northparkes Mines as a geologist, and so began our relocation from Adelaide. I was excited about the prospect of working in a new town; I was a chef at a local hotel here in Parkes, The Railway Hotel for two years before gaining the position here with the club as Head Chef.
My time as a chef here in Parkes prepared me well for this role, because I have gained an understanding of what kinds of food the community enjoy. I look forward to providing the patrons of Parkes Services Club delicious meals, made from quality, local ingredients. Come and say hi when you next visit the club. I look forward to meeting you!
Sous Chef - Connor Murphy
Connor Murphy our Sous Chef is preparing to travel to Korea next month for a once in a lifetime experience. Connor will be gone from the 10th to the 27th of October travelling through Korea and learning how to cook Chinese, Korean and Japanese food. Everyday Connor will be learning and seeing how these different nationalities cook and prepare their food.
He is currently attending Tafe studying a Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery. When the opportunity arose, Connor took the opportunity to apply for this amazing trip. Connor is 1 out of 10 lucky people who will be attending this trip.
They will also be visiting different restaurants through the tour and observing cooking techniques, skills and styles. Lucky for us Connor will be keeping a diary so we can find out what he did whilst on his trip.
