A foodie from a young age, Nick grew up in Tasmania, the Apple Isle and home to incredible produce. He learnt early on the importance of eating locally and sustainably which led to a career in hospitality and his journey to becoming a chef. A lifelong passion for quality food and hospitality saw Nick open his own venues, Bar Sopra and Cafe La Bomba in Potts Point before moving to the beautiful suburb of Redfern and calling Bistro St Jacques home.
