Meet Sathish Kumar
Sathish Kumar, Head Chef
Meet our Head Chef Sathish Kumar, who leads a team of seven chefs.
“My goal is to give residents as much flavour as possible. What could be a better use of my skills and experience than bring nutrients and flavour to older people? I don’t want to serve them a similar product every day - it’s my passion to provide them with different experiences.”
We strive to continually develop skills and grow knowledge among the SwanCare team. As part of this focus, Sathish recently travelled to the Barossa in South Australia to take part in the 'Creating an Appetite for Life' education program run by renowned cook, author and restaurateur Maggie Beer. As part of the Maggie Beer Foundation, the program’s vision is to ensure that all residents in aged care are provided with fresh food and flavour - a vision that perfectly aligns with Sathish’s passion in the work he does.
“My work is definitely busy! Right now, we have a new kitchen being built so I’m getting to spend time being involved in that which is really exciting. Obviously, I’m also busy working with the other chefs to coordinate what they’re doing for the day, what’s being plated up and the quality of the food.”
