The Black Belt | Chef Darren Robertson ft David Thompson


For something a little different, our host Mags interviews her fiance, Three Blue Ducks co-owner and celebrity chef Darren Robertson - and surprisingly learns a few things about him that she never knew! The shaggy haired surfer known for his honest, wholesome cooking, reveals what it was really like being head chef at the iconic Tetsuya’s at it’s peak and why he now rebels against his fine dining training. He also shares everything from the behind the scenes gossip during his stint as guest judge on My Kitchen Rules and his secret life in martial arts to the dish he can’t cook, candid dating advice and why all chefs want to be rockstars. Then we put the world’s most celebrated Thai chef, Aussie David Thompson under the grill. His contribution to Thai cuisine is the stuff of legend, with his restaurant Nahm in Bangkok ranked in the World’s 50 Best and the first Thai restaurant to receive a Michelin star. In his signature naughty, witty, and unfiltered style, he reveals his top food destinations and why he despises trends.
