ADAM STEWART – HEAD CHEF BRISBANE
Growing up with his family on a two and a half acre property on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Adam developed a love for sustainable food from an early age, always eager to get out into the garden after a school day and on weekends to grow his own veggies and collect eggs from the farm’s chickens.
In 2006, Adam began his hospitality studies and was in awe of a visiting guest chef. The following year he began work as an apprentice in the restaurant of that same chef, before moving onto work within the industry in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and Mayfair in London.
Throughout his culinary journey, Adam’s passion for fresh produce and reduced kitchen waste has continued, taking home restaurant scraps such as pineapple tops and avocado seeds to regrow in his own garden. Adam’s mission is to encourage others to waste nothing wherever possible and to have fun with growing your own produce.
