After studying one year of a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Macquarie University, Jane Booth decided she’d prefer to be cooking and found work in a local bistro. She soon moved on to manage a bakery, before opening her own catering business.
In 1996, Jane started her apprenticeship at Rockpool in Sydney - under multi award winning Chef 'Neil Perry'. While at Rockpool, she also trained with Lorraine Godsmark for eight months in the pastry section and spent four months at sister restaurant Bistro Mars.
After completing her apprenticeship, Jane wanted a break from Sydney and decided to move to Melbourne. She worked in an Italian restaurant for five months before starting at Langton’s in September 2000, as Junior Sous Chef and Pastry Chef; under Executive Chef, Jeremy Strode.
