Chef Andrew Ballard
Simmer Culinary is owned and operated by Andrew and Angela Ballard. Chef Andrew previously worked as the Head culinary instructor for Crown Casino in Melbourne, Executive Chef for Le Grand Hotel and is also currently the founder and Head Chef of Culinary Mercenaries where he is responsible for the back of house operations at the Good Food and Wine Show as it travels around Australia working with such chefs as Rick Stien, Gordon Ramsey, Matt Moran, George Colombaris and Manu Feildel.
Simmer Culinary is a family owned and operated buisness. We firmly believe that this is the only way we can acheive our goal to always provide a personal experience of the highest quality to each and every customer. Our culinary exploits are linked to a strong ethical approach, we source and use as much local and seasonal produce as possiable. We believe that there is a growing demand for food that has been created not only with passion and pride by the chef but also using ingredients that we can all feel good about eating.
At simmer Culinary our primary concern with all of our endevours is to ensure we utilise the local and seasonal bounty that is available to us on the Mornington Peninsula and do it justice on the plate. As a client this means you will always get the freshest and highest quality food.
