My name is Jean Christophe Varnier. I am a French Chef by qualification with over 30 years experience. I am passionate about everything that involves food. For the past nine years, I have been a cookery, bakery and pastry tutor in one of the leading PTEs in NZ. Before that, for 18 months, I was Head Chef at Orbit 360 Dinning Restaurant at Sky City (150 seats, managing 17 chefs and doing 400+ covers daily). Before that, I owned my own restaurant being the founder, executive Chef and manager at St Tropez Restaurant in Parnell Auckland, for 12 years. I am also a passionate photographer.
