Justin found the culinary trade after completing his postgraduate degree over 10 years ago. He found work at a sushi bar and got hooked on to the creative outlet in this industry. His appreciation and respect for the natural state of things is what made him fell in love with Japanese gastronomy. It is also the pride that the Japanese take in their work and the years they dedicate to perfecting a dish. Melbourne has truly been a blessing for him to immerse himself into a diversity of techniques, equipment and ingredients. He has broadened his expertise into Australian modern cuisine and finds the perfect complement with Japanese cuisine.
