My life as a kid had embedded some deep core wounds which i had spent the most of my entire life at that point diving deeply into on the side of my hospitality career. And a chef’s job is not probably the most cohesive environment for healing.
I just thought about being free of the suffering. Hospitality was a vehicle for me personally to make money, read about the world & travel. On the side I might travel from the North of Australia in the wintertime season, for the southern parts for the summers concentrating on farms in the middle. It had been a never-ending summer of finding people to learn different healing modalities & bodywork from, while doing work in idyllic locations like the wilderness of Tasmania in eco lodges, the deserts of Australia.
I set my 1975 4WD Land Rover Series 3 on top of solar panels, 3 batteries, and kitchen inside my trailer, and i also would go and do vision quests inside the desert for 40 – 60 days asking them questions in deep contemplative states to discover answers about life no-one had been capable of help me to with. I traveled ALL of that mighty land called Australia over 20 years working in the best restaurants around australia and also the world.
I even worked in a fine dining restaurant inside the desert which was booked 2 weeks beforehand & was the Sommelier selling wines up to Au$4400 per bottle! I mean, exactly what a ride. Some of the owners of these places inspired me incredibly and I cannot thank them enough. One chef, Stefano de Pieri wasn’t a qualified chef and had their own T.V channel and among the best restaurant on earth. Mind blown I was thinking damn, all you need is passion in life and motivation.

The more I learnt about manufacture of our foods, the more I realized how messed up things were. I took work on a chicken-processing farm for 6 weeks to completely see exactly what is happening. What did I learn? Our company is really disconnected from what is really happening. And once we see cuts of meat all cleaned and bleached on the supermarkets or sent to our establishments, what we should are missing and never connecting to is all the suffering that accompany it. And I don’t just mean the animals, for certain that’s obvious. But those who operate in these places have severe mental illness. They may be people who tend not to fit into society, cannot hold a conversation with “normal” folk. Cannot turn up to work all dressed sharp while keeping it together. Nope, these individuals require our help.
