Wild Thing Raw, Demelza Donohoo
In-Residence : April 2015 for two PopUp breakfast events
Demelza Donohoo is a professional chef whose love of cooking started at a young age, where she was always experimenting in the kitchen, and after leaving school she studied both Western and Asian commercial cooking. She qualified with distinction and her professional career began working for some of Sydney’s top chefs. She moved to London to further her experience where she worked in fine dining restaurants.
Her passion for raw clean food then moved Demelza to Turks and Caicos where she trained with Donna Karan’s Private chef Jill Pettijohn and this love of all things raw persists to this day.
Demelza returned to Sydney to continue her practice with raw food and she recently established Wild Thing Raw which caters to Sydney’s demand for clean healthy food, providing raw food with a modern edge.
