Brian Smith has over 30 years experience as a professional chef in fine dining restaurants in Adelaide, Sydney and London. Brian is a passionate expert in Indian, Sri Lankan and Nonya cuisine and has a charismatic warmth that extends to all those that he teaches.
As Brian explains:
“In India I fell in love with the country, its food and culture. I stayed in India for eighteen months travelling the length and breadth of the county, taking the opportunity to experience the varying flavours across the states.”
An extensive traveller, his food journeys also took him to Bali, Java, Sumatra, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Japan then Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Greece.
Every step of the way presented new challenges and offered new taste discoveries and Brian spent his time foraging out those unique ingredients, delving behind the recipes of those memorable dishes and questioning the locals, always eager to master the unique flavour combinations that could be recreated back home.
As a Sticky Rice teaching Chef, Brian presents his classes in an informal and relaxed manner and will be enjoyed by keen and amateur cooks who want to ask questions and discover the secrets. The trial and effort has been done for you so enjoy his expertise and become a master in your own kitchen.
