Louis Tikaram is a chef who understands the value of nurturing young talent.
After he won the prestigious Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year award in 2014, doors to the best kitchens in the country opened for him. He worked in some of Sydney’s most decorated and iconic culinary powerhouses; the two hat Bentley Restaurant & Bar, fine dining pioneer Tetsuya’s, and perennial hatted favourite Longrain.
He then wowed the West Hollywood VIP crowd at his acclaimed LA restaurant, E.P & L.P.
Returning to Brisbane, Tikaram took head chef position at palatial Cantonese restaurant, Stanley, at the Howard Smith Wharves precinct.
Now it’s Tikaram’s turn to shine a light on Brisbane’s hot young talent at Good Food Month’s legacy event, the Young Chefs Lunch, on home turf at the stunning heritage wharf building, Rivershed at Howard Smith Wharves, with its jaw dropping views overlooking the city and Story Bridge.
Tikaram will be coaching the brightest young chefs from the hottest kitchens in town, mentoring them while they unleash their vision for a dish that’s vibrant, bold and delicious. While Tikaram will be in the kitchen encouraging the chefs to push the culinary envelope, guests will be enjoying the convivial space of the Rivershed with its grand exposed timber beams and the twinkling water of the Brisbane River.
Promoting and nurturing young talent is a Good Food Month tradition and we proudly shine a light on the crème-de-la-crème of Brisbane’s bright young chefs. Tikaram and the Good Food Month chef protégés will be preparing four courses served wine and beer. We anticipate this event will sell out quickly so please don’t hesitate in purchasing your tickets.
