Originally from Australia, Skye Gyngell worked at a number of Sydney’s culinary institutions, before flying to Paris to complete her formal training under Anne Willan at La Varenne.
After a stint at the Dodin-Bouffant, Skye moved to London to work at The French House and notably, The Dorchester with Anton Mossiman. Before setting up the Petersham Nurseries Cafe, Skye had been hidden from public view whilst working with a rota of high profile private clients.
As head chef of Petersham Nurseries Café, Skye works almost exclusively with seasonal produce, creating simple food inspired by what she sees growing and flowering around her. The relatively short menu changes every week and comprises of an average of five starters and five main course dishes plus cakes, ice creams & desserts. In season, she picks herbs, salads & fruit from the walled kitchen garden of Petersham House and uses as much local produce as she can lay her hands on.
Before accepting Gael & Francesco Boglione’s offer to open a cafe at Petersham Nurseries, Skye had already written for Vogue. A phenomenal reception to her work at the restaurant, including comparisons by their award winning restaurant critic Terry Durack to the work of legendary cook Alice Walters, lead to her appointment as the Independent on Sunday’s food writer.
Skye’s book “A year in my kitchen” was published by Quadrille in October 2006. This was named as Best Cookery Book at the 2007 Guild of Food Writers Awards.

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.
