Born in Nice France, Nicolas Reverte’s passion for food and cooking stems back to his childhood watching the passion and skill of his grandparents creating family meals. Since he was a child, Nicholas knew he wanted to pursue a culinary career.
Nicolas studied cuisine in Nice, and once his studies finished, he worked in both France and Spain. While in Spain, Nicolas was able to work for world-renowned chef Martin Berasategui, who holds 12 Michelin stars.
It was while working with Chef Berasategui that Nicolas learned a valuable lesson in understanding and respecting local produce and how to make the most of it. And it’s this understanding of and focus on the local produce that has made Nicolas a true attribute to the Reef House Restaurant.
With a desire to work with the produce of Queensland, particularly the seafood and tropical fruit, it is Nicolas’ aim to be able to combine these local ingredients with European flavours.
