Chef School

Sir John Fitzgerald Chef School has been developed and is managed by our Executive Chef. This initiative ensures the imagination, flair and skills of our chefs continue to grow.


Our Chef School brings together highly skilled and creative chefs who prepare highly enjoyable, beautifully presented food. The passion and panache of our chefs are ignited and their skills perfected. With years of experience in hospitality, our chefs continue to represent the Sir John Fitzgerald brand and the exceptional quality we deliver.

We do all of this because we are passionate about providing the very best for our customers and realising the potential of our talented staff.


Goals and expectations

The philosophy of our Chef School is to continually increase our standards and keep ahead of our customers’ high expectations. Our highly qualified development team offer training and guidance in cutting edge skills and emerging techniques, continuing to adapt to the fast paced environment of the hospitality industry.

Our programme is designed to impart contemporary professional skills and to encourage the personal development of our teams. Consequently, this ensures that we adhere to a system that produces consistency, quality and excellence.

Provenance is also extremely important to us. We are proud to say that we have a trustworthy supply of locally reared and grown produce. Through our Chef School we embrace seasonal changes to develop our menus, ensuring that they are continually fresh and up to date.

Our challenge overall however, is to develop and motivate our teams and young chef trainees through training and commitment.
