“This will be my first time back in an Aussie kitchen since leaving Australia to open E.P. & L.P. in 2014. I’m super excited to be teaming up with the guys at the Dolphin, to share my experiences and influences from Southern California so far and also tell my story through the menu from as far back as Mullumbimby. It’s going to be one hell of a Queen’s Birthday weekend.”
