Executive Chef Julian Bergerhoff joined us late October after a move to TNQ from Fremantle, WA where he lived for the last 5 years. His most recent role as Executive Chef at Little Creatures Brewing’s venues also saw him involved in the launch of new venues in Hong Kong, Byron Bay and Melbourne for Lion Nathan.
In the first decade of his career, Julian spent time gaining experience in fine dining restaurants and luxury hotels around Europe, including three Michelin starred restaurants in Germany and Austria. After this and prior to moving to Australia, Julian travelled and gathered extensive experience in a variety of impressive restaurants and venues around the world including The Lodge at Kauri in New Zealand and Restaurant Aubergine in Cape Town.
Julian’s love for Australia as a culinary melting pot of various cuisines from all around the world, has prompted him stay and theses influences can be seen throughout his culinary creations. His food philosophy to ‘Keep it simple, keep it flavoursome, keep it local and above all keep it fresh’ shines through in the Lime & Pepper Menu.
