About Executive Chef Mark Southon

After training at many Michelin star restaurants in Europe, Mark Southon embarked on his culinary tour down under.

From there, he landed a prestigious position at Vue de Monde - Australia's top restaurant for the past two years running. He then fell in love with our shores and has continued his illustrious career in NZ.

Mark is already a star of THREE TV shows. You can see him on Food TV's The Foodstore Chefs, the Best of NZ Food and the recent TV One hit "Monteith's Wild Food Challenge" (If you missed it, Food TV will be screening it again in January).

Mark has a genuine love for good food and always wanted to be a chef. He enjoys a laugh, even going so far as saying Lenny Henry's TV show "Chef" was also an influence on him getting into the business.

Catch Mark, along with the rest of the chefs, at The Foodstore.
