Food, football and fish fanatic
IT’S a tale we’ve all heard before but one we don’t seem to get sick of – a traveller on a journey around Australia calls into the Whitsundays and never leaves.
For Scottish lad Alan Bryce, no words have been truer as he reaches six years in the region he calls home. Alan is the head chef at KC’s Bar and Grill and when he’s not slaying in the kitchen, he’s kicking a ball around in a game of soccer or snorkelling in the Whitsunday waters.
He says he “fell into cheffing” when he was Scotland and has been in the trade since 2002.
Alan’s career has taken him out on boats in the Whitsundays to now at KC’s.
“It’s (KC’s) really down-toearth and has a friendly atmosphere – I think that’s why everyone loves it here,” he said. Alan hopes to one day explore more of Australia and visit the west coast including Perth, plus Kakadu National Park and the Kimberley.
What do you do to chill out?
Go for a sail on a friend’s boat or grab a beer with mates.
Where is the best place to eat in the Whitsundays?
I like Denman Cellars – they have a nice range of tapas and beer.
What’s your favourite movie?
It’s not a movie but I’m into the TV show Vikings at the moment and Game of Thrones.
Plans for the next 12
Keep working at KC’s and help the new owners build up the business.
Any last words?
You only live once so don’t waste any minute of it.
