Classically trained French Chef Frederic Booms is Head Chef at Sydney's stylish Cockle Bay brasserie ‘Helm Bistro & Bar’.
Hailing from positions as Head Chef at celebrated and award-winning restaurants such as Pier Nine, Montrachet and Chez Le’Toile, Chef Booms has become renowned for his modern take on French bistro style food. With his panache and distinctive flair for re-creating French themed dishes with robust yet simple flavours, Chef Booms is a top-notch addition to the sleek Helm venue.
Parisian-born Frederic began his culinary career over 13 years ago, when he began his training in Brisbane. Frederic completed his apprenticeship at iconic and respected Brisbane seafood restaurant Pier Nine, where he quickly moved up the ranks to become Chef de Partie, and, in 2002, Head Chef.
Paying homage to his heritage, in 2007 Frederic attained Head Chef position at celebrated, two-hatted French restaurant ‘Montrachet’ in Brisbane. Here, discovering his passion for modern French cuisine, Frederic gained the experience and laid the foundations for what he considers one of his career highlights to date – his role as Head Chef at Chez Le’Toile. Here at Chez Le’Toile, the French native practiced the art of elegant French bistro fare - skills which he puts to good use now in the Helm Bar menu.
Shunning the traditional connotations surrounding ‘pub grub’, Frederic has exclusively designed a brand new menu for Helm Bistro packed with robust yet flavour focused dishes. Undoubtedly imbued with Frederic’s signature European twist, the new Helm Bar menu represents superb brasserie style food at value-for money prices.
Chef Booms says: “Coming to work at Helm Bistro is a whole new challenge for me - but an exciting one. With the Helm menu, I wanted to get away from the ‘deep fried’ style of dish that is usually associated with bistro cuisine, to put a bit more love and soul in the food. Ultimately my aim is to create simple dishes with exceptional flavour.”

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
