CAFE PACI, Newtown.
'I think these past few months has taught me more about resilience. Not only myself but what a lot of my hospitality peers and community are capable of in terms of creativity and support for one another. We have had such an amazing amount of support from our customers and local community, so definitely some humility. I think people have become a lot more generous in respect to their patience and time. Camaraderie has always been important to me in the kitchen and a restaurant but never more so during these times. Simon who has been side by side with me in the bakery has been amazing. You get to know a person baking with them at 2.00am in the morning! '
