Qualified Chef for Hire
Hi, I’m Jan Cranitch. I’m a qualified Brisbane-based chef with over 30 years of experience.
In my kitchen, I specialise in Bespoke Cooking. I custom-make everything to suit my clients’ dietary needs and wishes. I like to use all natural, unprocessed ingredients (like fresh ginger, garlic and turmeric) and source local produce where possible to support local suppliers.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cook, my classes will offer valuable tips, tricks and recipes you’ll love. My classes follow a format for food designs that can be easily followed for inspiration with flexibility to create unique dishes for every client – drawing out each student’s creative skills!
I pride myself on helping to build people’s confidence in the kitchen; with boundless fun and free from judgement.
