Alice and Andrew, the creative minds behind The Bearded Cook, share an unwavering love for the culinary world that ignited within the bustling kitchen of Stefano Manfredi's Sydney haven. Their journey has carried them across continents – from London's vibrant food scene to managing a boutique hotel and restaurant in Castlemaine, Victoria.
Their path then led them to the picturesque Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. Here, Andrew took the helm of kitchens at Craggy Range Winery, while Alice orchestrated hospitality for the Hawkes Bay Arts Festival, and championed food rescue initiatives that mattered deeply to them.
Their adventure continued in Andrew's homeland, New Zealand, where they opened The Good Table, their captivating pop-up winery restaurant. From catering events and concerts, each dish bore their distinctive touch.
Now nestled in South Australia's Barossa Valley, they've brought their culinary dream to life with The Bearded Cook food truck. From wineries to private events, their food truck adds a sprinkle of uniqueness. As they transition into private and corporate catering, their expertise shines through.
The Bearded Cook isn't just about food; it's a vehicle for giving back. Their involvement in the Barossa Food Security network mirrors their dedication to community and sustainability.
