Tamaki Nakatani


Tamaki studied culinary arts at the William Angliss Institute in Melbourne. Her passion for food started when she was a child at the tender age of seven. At university, she realised that she had a passion for cooking whilst working at a Japanese Izakaya (tapas style) restaurant. It was here that she first learnt how to cook Japanese food professionally. She has an agricultural background, which gives her passion and knowledge in regards to freshness and working within seasonality. Her cooking style involves using and educating diners with seasonal ingredients. Although she is Japanese, she has developed a passion for fusion dishes that draws heavily from Japanese, Italian and French cuisines.

Chef Tamaki was great - she was professional and clean and made some delicious food. The guests had a great time and the wine was paired well.

The overall experience was fantastic. This was the most relaxed & enjoyable entertaining experience I've ever had in my own home and I will definitely use Intertain and Tamaki again for similar events & dinners.

The experience exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious, well presented and there was a lot of it. The chef was very talented.

Tamaki Nakatani was an absolute treasure. We all loved the food. It was superb. We loved Tamaki’s explanation with each course. She was just beautiful. I would highly recommend her to others. In fact several of our guests were keen to get her business card or to know how we had accessed her. Thank you Irene for your assistance in organising the dinner. You made it soooo easy. I look forward to working with you again.
