Chef Thomas D
Born and bred in Germany, chef Thomas Damm always had the urge to move around. Professionally it took him some detours before becoming a chef. After being a mechanic, then studying economics and engineering, Thomas finally found out what his real passion is, food. He had the fortune to hone his craft in Germany’s Michelin starred kitchens. A lot of hard work and 4.5 years later, he needed a break and guess where that led him to? Australia is the answer.
Learning the language was his first task. After a lot of hard work and travelling across the country, he fell in love with Melbourne. That was in 2010 and he is still here today. Working in the Melbourne Club, also Stokehouse, spending the longest time in one kitchen with 3.5 years. Running the kitchens in various cafes like Las Chicas showed him a wide variety of Australian foods. But the love of fine dining brought him to private dining.
