New chef to head the kitchen at Cairns Convention Centre
Boudaud will bring French flair to the menu, beginning his career in the south of France at just 14 years-old. He went on to work at the Michelin starred Le Senechal de Michel Truchon in Sauveterre de Rouergue.
Arriving in Australia in 2011, he spent five years with the Atlantic Group in Melbourne working under renowned chef Donovan Cooke before joining Cooke and Alex Law at their new restaurant Ryne in North Fitzroy.
“I was attracted to the position by the high culinary standards expected at the Cairns Convention Centre and the ease of access to an outstanding array of premium, fresh local produce grown in the pristine environment of Tropical North Queensland,” Boudaud said.
Ross Steele, general manager at Cairns Convention Centre, said they were delighted to attract a high calibre young chef with such a 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,” he said.
