Classically trained chef in London and Europe, Chicky completed her apprenticeship with one of Sydney's elite catering companies and then spent the next 15 years working for 2 of the top-tier corporate board rooms in Sydney, Coopers and Lybrand (now PWC) and Minter Ellison Lawyers as a highly respected and sought after chef.
She has owned and operated her successful catering business, Chicky Hampshire Catering, for the past 17 years and has concentrated on remaining informed and educated about the best practices in Catering, Nutrition and Client Service by studying Natural Science and Nutrition as well as most recently obtaining a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.
"I take enormous pride in the food I prepare: I believe my food is refined yet accessible, subtle yet appetising. I carefully source fresh produce from all over Sydney to ensure the best and freshest possible ingredients go into any dish I prepare. My aim is that the food I prepare should speak for itself: delicious, elegantly presented, fresh.
I have been providing catering services to a broad range of clients for many years. Over this time I have learned that no client, no event, no occasion is the same or has the same requirements. I work closely with my clients to ensure that my service meets the highest standards and more importantly, their expectations. I believe that this individual approach is one reason why I have so many clients who have returned to me again and again through the years."
