The Cairns Convention Centre has appointed Benjamin Boudaud
as Executive Chef.
Benjamin joined the hospitality
industry in the south of France at just 14 years old, building his
education and career before working at the Michelin starred Le Senechal de Michel Truchon in Sauveterre de Rouergue.
Benjamin arrived in Australia in 2011 and spent five years with
the Atlantic Group in Melbourne honing his skills and creativity
with world renowned Chef, Donovan Cooke.
In a return to his French
roots he joined Donovan Cooke and Alex Law at their new restaurant Ryne in North Fitzroy before the Cairns Convention Centre lured
him to Tropical North Queensland.
Ross Steele, General
Manager, Cairns Convention Centre said, “We are delighted to
attract a high calibre young chef with Benjamin Boudaud’s diverse
experience. He will provide a balance of contemporary flair and
technical excellence as the Centre’s new Executive Chef, leading
our awarding winning team.”
