around the world in 8 dishes with chef misha laurent
8Things Katoomba - Eat in or take-away “street” food prepared daily - by international chef Misha Laurent. With a passion for food and travel, and a family background in hospitality, french-born Misha has over 20 years experience in the food industry.
Whilst growing up in Paris he was exposed to North African/ Mediterranean culture and cuisine, which later became his passion and is reflected in his style of cooking today. His formal hospitality training began at the Sheraton Hotel in Munich, where he graduated in Hotel Management. With a desire to cook & travel, he was able to work in Europe, S-E Asia, and North America, during which time he developed a taste for quality Street food.
After working as head chef for two prominent Blue Mountains restaurants Misha decided to make the area home and has since focused on offering a variety of quality foods that had not previously been locally available.“We should not have to travel to Sydney or abroad to get these dishes.”Along with his love of food Misha has a true love of urban music, particularly funk and hip hop. He felt Katoomba had an urban vibe about it and was the perfect location for a street food venue where he could serve the food he loves while playing the tunes that move him.
