Chef de Cuisine Rhian Rodrigues
Chef Rhian Rodrigues’ love for cooking and hospitality sprouted early, as he grew up involved in his family’s catering business in India; and it continued to flourish while he studied at the Academy of Culinary Education (Goa, India). After graduating with a Diploma in Chef Management, Chef Rhian realized his true passion was in the kitchen and began his storied career as a chef.
Chef Rhian’s impressive culinary skills have led him to hold a variety of prestigious positions in luxury hotels and restaurants across India, Australia and Canada. Most recently, he held a variety of positions at the 4.5-star Royal on the Park in Brisbane, Australia, where he moved swiftly through the ranks to become the hotel’s Executive Chef.
Known and revered for his unique, and sometimes unusual, blend of global cuisines, polished techniques, and flavour profiles, Chef Rhian has won a number of international awards, accolades, and culinary competitions, including the Queensland Hospitality Association’s Best Restaurant Award in 2012.
Soon after, Chef Rhian’s talents and meteoric rise on Australia’s food scene caught the eye of Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants; today, he applies his passion, creativity and unique culinary style as the Chef de Cuisine at Jump.
