Americo Fernandes

Hello fellow food lovers. My name is Americo Fernandes and I am a Paris born chef to Portuguese parents. My first experience with food started with my beautiful mother and grandmother who collectively taught me the fundamentals of farm to table cooking. They inspired my love of food and cooking, which then lead me at 15 years old to an apprenticeship at the esteemed Michelin Starred InterContinentalHotel, Paris.Following a 10-year culinary career in France and Europe, my desire to travel took me to Melbourne, where I was offered a position at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.Since moving from Melbourne, I have worked in restaurants all over Brisbane and have earned hats at both Bacchus and Malt Dining.I would describe my style of cooking as European fusion with predominantly French technique.My loves are good food, good people, and good conversation so I hope to bring this to you at your bespoke dinner.
