Mel Gato - Head Chef
Mel has been cooking for 18 years. She worked at the Exchange and the Mary Ellen before moving across to Swansea RSL where she worked for 10 years in the al a carte restaurant, handling all functions and running the bistro at the club. Most of her experience is with bistro-style foods (steaks, schnitzels, burgers, pastas, etc). Her favourite food is Mexican. She believes her family eats Mexican food at least once a week and she loves being able to bring her knowledge and love of Mexican food to Lexie’s Thursday nights. Hobbies include camping, bushwalking, and a massive Stephen King fanatic who loves watching horror movies!!
Born in the coalfields (Muswellbrook/Maitland way), cooking has always been in Kieron's blood. From a young age, you would find him working in his family's takeaway shop helping prepare and cook food with great flair. Kieron followed his passion for food which has seen him create culinary delights in some of The Hunter’s fine dining restaurants and local pub bistros. He has worked with & learned from some of the best chefs that Newcastle has to offer. If Kieron isn’t in the kitchen you will probably find him somewhere by the water with his son Lochie, fishing rod in his hand catching their next supper.
A Newcastle Boy through-and-through, Heath is happy to call the city by the beach home. He has already accumulated over eight years of collective kitchen experience throughout a range of commercial venues. Always a keen worker, he loves the fast pace atmosphere of working in a professional kitchen. Heath is also passionate about skating, boxing, fitness and keeping healthy, although he struggles to say no to a good burger, of which he considers himself a connoisseur.
