The Tonga EXECUTIVE GROUP TRAINING CHEF
Simon was immediately drawn to owner Ben’s energy and his positivity and his enthusiasm about where all things Tongabezi was going.
He was working in Tanzania when a friend forwarded him a job post. His search criteria was somewhere that offered a rural job in an amazing place with good money. The options were either Tongabezi or North Island Seychelles. We won.
Chef Simon Says as he is known on Social media where he is very active is adamant about staying at Tonga for a minimum of four years and a couple of strong months into the job he has seen enough to know that he has never worked at a property with more potential.
If he could cook for his ideal dinner party the guest list would include:
Michael McIntyre (because his mother loves him and watching his mother in stitches is his favourite thing)
Stephen Fry (now I also want a chair!)
Rowan Atkinson (whose comedy was introduced to him by his dad at a young age)
And then, for the sake of sheer pressure – Ferran Adrià Acosta from El Bulli.
