I am Chef Malcolm Richardson, welcome to the official website and blog of The Common Chef Australia.

The site is a stock pot of various recipes simmering away, waiting to be served and consumed by fellow foodies and chef’s, Australia wide

The intense aroma’s and taste will help turn your mind on end and give you a whole new look and appreciation for the power of great food and the even better chef’s that cook it for you.

Follow our socials and subscribe to our newsletter to get the most up to date info on the when and where of Australia’s best food, and the who’s who of the chef’s we find. Our relentless search for our great chef’s takes us all over this amazing country, and along the way allows us to get into the kitchen with the common chef’s in the venues we love. The chef’s turn out to be anything than common and the plates they serve are a smack to the senses and an eye opener as well.

Follow our in-depth dive into food additives, preservatives and safety aspects of the food we eat. With a country with huge allergy issues with our children, and ever increasing costs and reductions in quality, we will open your eyes to what is going into your body.

Our product breakdowns will allow you to get more informed details of what your favourite foods are made of. If you have a product you would like us to look at, please send us an email to: productprofiles@thecommonchef.com.au and we will put it on our list!

Finally our event and festival management team, who will take care of all your food events and festival needs, and our Food Policy team, will help you along your business journey and give you the tools to grow and develop your food industry business. Our experienced Food industry team can do everything from writing your new menu or dietary designs, to undertaking complete HACCP or Quality Control assessments and getting you ready for Audits, the team will steer you in the right direction.

So as you can see, The Common Chef is all about food and food business. If you are a hardcore foodie like us, there is sure to be something here for you!
