Introducing Apprentice Jayde Duncan: Rockpool Bar and Grill (Sydney)

Rockpool Bar and Grill (Sydney): Apprentice Chef

Jayde is a Kamillaroi woman from Boggabilla in northern New South Wales and now in her second year as an apprentice (Cert III in Commercial Cookery) under the watchful eyes of Corey Costelloe and Neil Perry.

“I have always had a passion for cooking from my Nan’s family gatherings and after seeing my older brother (NICI participant Keith Munro) do a cooking demonstration, confirmed I need to join NICI.” Says Jayde. “To work at Rockpool Bar and Grill (Sydney) has been an incredible experience so far. I can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes me in the future.”

Jayde hopes to develop her skills that will allow her to travel the world, including South Korea, where Jayde is a fan of the K-Pop culture.
