I have cooked for and met some amazing people along the way and I will never forget some amazing nights"

    Chef / Owner Jono Beattie

    I've been a chef for 21 years now, but none have been as rewarding as the past 6 years as a private chef, to cook in someones home and deliver the food to them yourself is an experience you don't get working in restaurants. It's hugely important to me to make sure everything on that plate is beautiful and well balanced. It's my job as a chef to take whatever nature has given us and enhance it to it's best abilities. A lot of time and care is taken into the preparation of every event I do to make sure it is a truly memorable meal.

    My time as a private chef has now come to an end and a new and exciting chapter has begun. My goal was always from the very beginning to have my small catering business to take me down a different path. Almost out of the blue the path finally lead me to my dream which was to one day own and run my own restaurant. I cannot wait to have a place where more people can taste my food and of course not having to pack and unpack my car out of my garage will be a huge bonus. I look forward to meeting and hosting some of my previous clients one day again at 'North Restaurant' at Kourawhero Mountain Lodge.
