Paul Baker, chef and di­rec­tor, Chefs on Wheels

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

When COVID-19 hit fever pitch, hos­pi­tal­ity duo, chef Paul Baker (Botanic Gar­dens Res­tau­rant) and his wife Annabelle (di­rec­tor of whole­saler Ed­i­ble Ex­change), hit the ground run­ning.

To­gether with EE co-di­rec­tor Jimmy Day, they launched Chefs on Wheels – a plat­form for pro­duc­ers and chefs, who were sud­denly out of work be­cause of COVID-19 re­stric­tions, to pre­pare meals and other foods for home de­liv­ery.

So suc­cess­ful was the ser­vice, the team has vowed to keep Chefs on Wheels in mo­tion, as it con­tin­ues to pull re­spected restau­rants and cafes on board, from the award-win­ning Salop­ian Inn to ar­ti­san bak­ery Ab­bots and Kin­ney.

Not only is it a use­ful ser­vice for the home con­sumer, it’s a means to help these restau­rants stay afloat through a slow re­open­ing.
