Clifford Wallace Chef Services: The Complete Package

August 1st, 2017

We are very excited to announce the appointment of John O’Riordan to the Clifford Wallace team. A very well-known name in Sydney’s restaurant and catering scene, John will head up our newly formed Back of House division – Clifford Wallace Chef Services.

John has a very impressive CV spanning Canada, Europe, UK and of course Australia. Highlights include: tenure as Chef de Partie at Harvey Nicholls London, Executive Chef at Doltone House Sydney and the distinction of establishing and owning Grappa (the first hatted restaurant in Norton Street, Leichhardt). 

John’s 18 years of success have, in part, been due to his innate ability to source chefs with unmatched skill and experience creating a team of top quality personnel. He is now renowned for his Agency and for the quality of chefs he provides to leading Sydney caterers, venues and corporate clients.  With characteristic modesty, John explains that the secret of his success is to create a team of chefs better and even more talented than himself!

We are delighted that John has chosen Clifford Wallace as the Staffing agency to partner with! This will enable him to grow much faster through access to our infrastructure, networks and office resources, allowing him to focus on what he does best, sourcing and placing the best quality chefs in Sydney.

We aim to become a “one-stop shop” for both your front of house and back of house needs.

As you may know, Sydney is in the middle of a chronic chef shortage. Thankfully, John’s day-to-day chef operations already keep our client kitchens running smoothly. Chefs may be scarce, but leave it to us and we can provide a variety of versatile and talented back of house staff to work alongside our cohort of front of house staff.

This new and exciting partnership will enable Clifford Wallace to offer a total hospitality service. We aim to become a “one-stop shop” for both your front of house and back of house needs. 

The expertise of John’s team, combined with our industry professionalism, longevity and proven track record means that you will continue to receive the same exceptional service standards that you have come to expect from us. Use our chef services worry free with unbeatable flexibility. 

And they don’t just cook! John and his team have a huge breadth of experience and knowledge, from fast food to mid-range and fine dining that you could make use of. The finer points of food service like menu design, kitchen design, kitchen systems, suppliers, budgeting, and more can be looked after by our chef team as consultants.

Get in touch with us to discuss how this exciting new venture could help your business. We look forward to seeing where the addition of stronger and more varied chef services to our repertoire can take us!
