He started cooking at the age of 10 and then he was interested becoming a water policeman but instead he became a painter and a builder before he was a chef.

His Mum and Dad used to own a restaurant and it served Italian food. His whole family worked at the restaurant to help. His first ever meal he made was a fish curry.

He had his own restaurant in Sydney but he has now moved back to Tasmania. In Launceston he now has a new restaurant called The Grain.

To make our pizza we had to flatten our pizza dough and then we put cheese, ham, zucchini and parsley on top of the dough. We folded it in half – like a taco – and then it was deep fried in vegetable oil.

It tasted like a pizza but also kind of like a bun. They puffed up when they were put in the hot oil. They had a crunchy outside. People thought they looked like tacos, burritos and potatoes. Written by Olyvia & Amelia
