WHO WE ARE

ANGELO TEIXEIRA

Chef

Angelo is a highly experienced chef born and raised in Brazil.
He has been influenced by a diversion of different cultures from his time travelling and exploring his own cultural roots. 

His passion for growing organic food inspired him to always experiment and create new dishes.

Angelo went to culinary school in Australia to learn basic techniques of the cuisine world, but a lot of his knowledge comes from his curiosity of Ayurvedic philosophy and nutrition, and permaculture which gave him a more holistic understanding of the elements of nature, food and it's cycles. 

Angelo built experience in the kitchen through working in vegan, middle eastern and farm to table restaurants around Australia.
