We have an exciting Charity Night Auction Item SCOOP to share with you all!!!
We have just been advised that renown celebrity chef Damian Heads from the hit Channel 10 show Ready, Steady Cookhas generously offered his own time and immense talent once again in support of The 10th Annual Vanags Family & Friends Charity Night – this year supporting I Give A Buck!.
Four people will get to visit Damian’s top 5 star restaurant Steel Bar & Grill in Sydney on a Saturday lunch (on a date to be confirmed when the restaurant is closed) and cook a lovely 3 course lunch with Damien in his AMAZING kitchen!
He will guide all four of you through the whole cooking experience and then you’ll get to sit in the restaurant with him and enjoy the wonderful food you have all created!
We’re also very excited that Damian and his wife Jenni will be joining us again as guests at The Epping Club on Saturday 4 June!
Brisbane born Damian started his career in the kitchens at the Brisbane Hilton. He stayed just long enough to complete his apprenticeship … the day after Damian finished his apprenticeship he was on a plane to Europe, with his knives packed in his backpack.
By January 2000, he was back in Sydney, as Sauce Chef at the Bennelong Restaurant at the Sydney Opera House. In mid 2001 he moved to Milsons as Chef de Partie, and the next year he was awarded the Josephine Pignolet Award for Best Young Chef.
In 2003 he opened the very popular Garfish, before embarking on a six month study trip (as part of his prize for the Josephine Pignolet Award) through Europe and the United Kingdom, visiting a wide variety of restaurants and meeting with some of the world’s best chefs.
On returning to Australia early 2005 Damian took the role of Head Chef at Fuel Bistro, Surry Hills, Sydney.
In 2006 Damian joined forces with synonymous architect Michael McCann (best known for Flying Fish, The Argyle, Toko and many more) in his restaurant Pony, situated in The Rocks on the doorstep of Sydney Harbour. He opened Steel 2 years later in the CBD, and then late last year, added a second Pony Restaurant in Neutral Bay.
