Celebrated Chef Joins Stoddart New Zealand Team

July 28, 2021

Stoddart is delighted to announce that celebrated Chef, Adam Dickson, has joined the team as Chef/Sales Specialist for Stoddart New Zealand.

Adam Dickson’s Background

What does it take to go from starting as a kitchenhand at the Sheraton Mirage in Port Douglas at 14, to writing recipes in cookbooks alongside the likes of Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and other famous Chefs.

It takes dedication to fulfill your potential, as Adam Dickson has appreciated. From gaining his Chefs passport at 18, this allowed him to travel the world, cooking for movie stars, running major catering operations at the Olympics in Sydney and the Americas Cup. He took this further, owning his own restaurant to giving back to the industry by facilitating training for culinary apprentices and working with catering associations.

Joining the Stoddart NZ team

It has been a full circle for Adam, as he brings to the Stoddart table 28 years’ experience in the hospitality industry having worked through-out the world in kitchens from hot dog stands to fine dining establishments.

Adam’s recent background has been teaching up and coming Chefs at MIT in Auckland where he passed on his knowledge to Level 3 & 4 students for around 4 years.

Further, he was involved with the Restaurant Association, mentoring apprentice chefs in mid to end of apprenticeship assessments as he firmly believes in encouragement of on-the-job training.

“I am looking forward to getting into it and utilising the collective knowledge and experiences of the Stoddart team and myself so we can offer to our clients the best possible outcome for their needs.”

“Representing the Stoddart brands and delivering excellence, along with some cracking cuisine and amazing toys to play with in the kitchen will be something that is very different and something that will be unique to the New Zealand marketplace”.

Adam has already commenced at Stoddart and is looking forward to getting around in the next little while to introduce himself to Dealers and reacquaint himself out in the marketplace.

Stoddart is moving to a much larger facility in Auckland later this year, with a full showroom and demonstration kitchen that will incorporate the brands that Stoddart manufacture and distribute.
