Who Is Louis Tikaram?
Louis hails from a farm in Mullumbimby, on the north coast of New South Wales. Tikaram’s journey into the world of cooking started alongside his Fijian-Chinese grandmother, where he discovered the magic of his family’s culinary heritage. But it was his time living in Fiji during his pre-teen years that truly ignited his passion for food and culture.
He packed his bags and headed to Sydney, where he began his apprenticeship at the famous Longrain restaurant. Under the wing of Chef Martin Boetz, he honed his skills and developed a deep respect for Southeast Asian-inspired cuisine.
Tikaram joined the esteemed Tetsuya’s in Sydney, a renowned dining destination. There, he soaked up the wisdom of Japanese chefs, learning the importance of discipline and consistency in the kitchen. With opportunities to work in top-notch restaurants across the globe, from Vancouver to Barcelona, Tikaram expanded his culinary repertoire, infusing his dishes with diverse influences.
But the turning point in Tikaram’s career came when he took over as the executive chef of Longrain, handpicked by none other than his mentor, Martin Boetz. Then, Tikaram decided to return to his roots. Back in Brisbane, he opened the sensational Stanley Cantonese Restaurant, nestled along the Howard Smith Wharves. There, he celebrates his Chinese heritage by putting a contemporary spin on classic Cantonese delicacies.
