Celebrity Chef Profiles
Passionate chefs share a curious commonality of food morals and ideals and this section of our web site is determined not to just celebrate the great chefs using Australian Southern Rocklobster, but also to connect them with other like-minded chefs, diners and home cooks.
A truly great chef sheds a recipe as easily as a snake sheds its skin, secure in the knowledge that there is already a new thought, a new and better idea, waiting to be seen. A great chef even understands that another chef may take their recipe, embellish it and improve it. They know this is how a recipe evolves.
We invite you to return to our web site to read about chefs using Australian Southern Rocklobster, learn about their culinary journeys and enjoy their amazing recipes. We can deliver the product in pristine condition to anywhere in the world, but without the innovation and genius of the chefs that use our product and present it to the diner there would be no point in our effort. Therefore, we celebrate the chef, their innovation and their enjoyment of our superb Australian Southern Rocklobster.

Justin Miles, executive chef owner Windy Point Restaurant, Adelaide, South Australia
Justin Miles is one of those rare chefs who manages to keep a balance between life and cooking. He continued to rise and rise in the cooking world, until his recent ’three hats’ in the 2010 Adelaide Advertiser Good Food Guide, where his restaurant was one of only three restaurants to receive that coveted accolade. Given that there are some 5,500 restaurants in Adelaide this gives and indication of just how important that accolade is to his reputation and that of his restaurant. Miles has maintained the elements drummed into him as an apprentice in Mistress Augustine’s Restaurant
and the three Michelin–starred London Bibendum
, where he worked for six months. On his return to Adelaide, in his own kitchen for the first time, he immediately made his mark on the local dining scene, whilst at the same time building on his overall experience, including running a very busy hotel restaurant and functions facility. From 1994 the accolades started to flow and continue to do so.
