Celebrity Chef Tetsuya Wakuda

Tetsuya is part of an elite group of international chefs that has influenced other chefs through their personal styles and unique approaches to food.

I have been a fan of Tet's now for over 10 years, when my wife brought me his first cookbook that was released. We were fortunate to have booked a table at his Kent Street restaurant whilst in Sydney in 2002, and was suitably impressed with the degustation menu that was presented to us. We have vowed to go back to the restaurant for our 10th wedding anniversary, and are chumping at the bit to get there!! You have to go there before you turn up your toes!!!

We met Tetsuya when he first came to Australia- Danny White(my husband who is a Chef) gave him his first job at Fishwives in Sydney- and we are still friends- he is truly a lovely genuine man. We have been lucky enough to go to all his restaurants over the years and also to his Singapore Restaurant- a completely different experience but just as wonderful! Sue White.
