Born on Jeju Island in Korea, Caleb’s first experience with cooking was at the Dongguk University restaurant in Kyongju, where he worked as a kitchen hand. He then moved to Seoul to work in local restaurants and continue to learn about cooking.

Hungry to learn more and gain experience in world class kitchens, Caleb moved to Australia to study commercial cookery at Le Cordon Bleu. He then went on to work at Justin North’s Bécasse and finished his “IP” at Neil Perry’s Spice Temple. Caleb then moved to Moss Vale to work with Chef Twan Wijers at Katers Restaurant for 3 years, and then came back to Sydney to work for Chef Conor Plunkett at Stix catering.

Caleb’s cooking is influenced by Asian cuisine, especially from Japan, China, and Korea. Caleb will happily serve you unique and tasty Asian flavors with a twist of French technique.

Caleb is LEGIT the man… seriously – we are some pretty hardcore foodies (pardon the wanky self-application of that title) but we are well versed in eating at multiple michelen starred restaurants around the world and take it pretty seriously – and this meal just blew our minds. And the fact that it was prepared in our tiny little Air BnB kitchen (which was pretty crappy) is even more amazing. Caleb got two spontaneous ovations from the group and a standing ovation at the end.

He was generous with his time, cooked amazing food, was quick and prompt, and was really happy to play along as things got a bit loosey goosey as the night wore on and wine was enjoyed.

Seriously, 11/10 would book again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU!!

Caleb was very punctual and very organised. The food was fantastic and each course was explained to us. Very positive experience – only thing we feel could have been improved was slightly longer between courses.

Caleb showed up on time and came prepared with everything he needed to prepare a lovely creative meal for us. I was so honored that he enjoyed looking around our kitchen as it’s our pride and joy. The food was perfectly prepared and I really felt like Caleb went above and beyond to make our dinner special for our anniversary. He added in some complimentary courses and cleaned up beautifully at the end. Thankyou for a fabulous experience!

We so enjoyed having the Chef Caleb and Kat for our function on Saturday night. The food was amazing, they left the kitchen spotless and the food was delivered with a friendly smile and warmth. It was so special to have restaurant quality dining at your home table and not have to lift a finger. The kitchen is usually my domain and I am the one preparing and servicing others it was so lovely to have someone come and do this for me. Could you kindly pass on our sincere thanks to Kat and Caleb – we had a great night.

Pleasure to have Caleb in our home. His menu of modern Korean and Japanese inspired dishes was amazing and perfectly executed. Everyone had the it favourites but highlights for me were the seaweed and tobiko rice, ssamjang pork belly and slow cooked short rib. What a great way to celebrate my birthday in our new home.

Caleb is charming and a great chef. I didn’t have to do anything to help him and he couldn’t be nicer. My guests and I loved his food and the way he presented it.

I’d like to thank you and your team for their part in making our wedding “the best wedding ever” according to just about every guest from youngest to oldest.

The food was absolutely amazing and I spent a large part of the night telling people who you guys were, who Caleb was and how we chose him.

I have to admit that one of my major worries for the night was the food – was it enough and would everyone like it. While Paul and I unfortunately missed out on the canapes, I was told they were delicious. As for the rest of it, it was fantastic – so much flavour and so intimate – not at all like the many mass produced menus you tend to see at other functions.

I can’t not include the wait staff who unfortunately, I didn’t get their names. They were incredibly professional, friendly and efficient. They were there when you needed them and somehow managed the service without being seen. It was like the meals just appeared from one minute to the next and their timing was fantastic.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone and I will certainly be looking for opportunities to use you again.
