Tonya is Melbourne trained at Holmesglen, in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu and the Ritz Escoffier and in Burgundy at La Varenne l’Ecole de Cuisine. She has also visited regional cooking schools in the Dordogne, Normandy and in Tuscany, Italy.

I learnt how to cook duck breast and vegetables. The rest of the food is not good for my cholesterol and triglycerides. Great teacher and an interesting experience something different to my daily routine.
