About me

My name is Darrin Creenaune, I’m a Chef, and I’ve been in the hospitality industry for over 22 years now and still loving it. I’ve worked in pubs, clubs, catering and even kiosks. I landed a job in the TAFE restaurant when I was 3-4 weeks into my studies, where I got the opportunity to work under four great Chefs, learning what I could from them which gave me such a significant step forward in my career and I thank them all for giving me that opportunity.

During my studies, I had the chance to work at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, and if given the opportunity to do it again, I’d do it in a heartbeat. Working long hours with very short breaks and travelling long distances to and from our accommodation was very hard, but worth it, I was working with people who had travelled from many different parts of the world. Some of these people were volunteers, and all they got were their uniforms, there was no pay, and they had to sort out their own accommodation, travel and living expenses, whereas the other Chefs and I were paid, so I have to take my hat off to all of them.

From there, I started on a career that has spanned 20 years so far and hopefully many more years to come. I have had the pleasure of working everywhere from bistros in the outback to island living and cooking at Tangalooma Resort in Queensland. The knowledge I have learnt from other chefs and been able to pass on to younger chefs has been immeasurable, and one of the favorite things about my career.
