Grant Sipeli, Diploma in Professional Chef Practice/Professional Chef Practice Level 3 and Level 4 Graduate
A summer working at Terroir, one of the world’s most highly ranked vineyard restaurants, was a great stepping stone to a career in hospitality, says recently graduated chef Grant Sipeli.
Grant has always enjoyed food and grew up helping his mother cook the family meals. Supported and encouraged by Jo and her mother, he took the opportunity to enrol for EIT’s Diploma in Professional Chef Practice.
I have been involved in the Hospitality Industry for 25 years with extensive experience in New Zealand and Australia and the UK.
My main subject areas are Front of House and Wine and Food Appreciation and I love passing on my experience and knowledge of these subjects to my students. Hospitality is an exciting, vibrant industry and to be able to convey this to our students and see them leave our programmes trained and ready to enter this industry makes my job very satisfying
