CHRIS FORTUNE at the Taste Cooking Demos in Auckland Sunday 10 th April
Since winning HELL’S KITCHEN in May 2003 Chris has relises he can no longer stand behind a Cow
Having been busy working and running restaurants for the last 15 years he is now enjoying helping raise his young 8 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Never to be far from the hotspots though, Chris is also currently working for the Heartland Hotel Blenheim and the Marlborough Convention Centre as the Executive Chef and presides as the Chairperson for the Marlborough Farmers Market and chairperson of the New Zealand Farmers Market Association. Chris is passionate about all NZ food producers and supports local fresh honest cuisine. This gives him a much broader and deeper appreciation of how produce gets to the kitchen. Having run many different kitchens and an active member of different organisations both in Marlborough and New Zealand Chris understands that no longer can a chef hide in his kitchen; they must represent their philosophy and understanding of hospitality.
