Chef Nobu Lee

Executive Chef Nobu Lee creates contemporary cuisine using local, seasonal ingredients and is a strong believer in simplicity and natural beauty.

Dish: Lumina lamb and Koshihikari with nasu, lemon, mountain pepper, ikura, maitake, negi.

Nobu started his career in Christchurch New Zealand 23 years ago, and cheffing has taken him to Taiwan, Japan, France, Australia and New Zealand (again).

"Lumina is a very unique product and as a chef, I don’t have to do too much work to make it stand out. It has a unique flavour and it is very consistent."
