Liam O’Brien - People of O-Town
“I’ve been a Chef for over 20 years, and continue to enjoy it every day. I love that each day is different.
It’s also taken me all over the world, which I am very grateful for - including Thailand and Bali, I’d say Thailand has been my favourite place to live, I enjoy the culture, the street food and my wife’s Thai, *laughs* just their way of being, everything is just a bit more relaxed there.
“I actually don’t have a favourite dish to make, whatever is best at the markets at the time really, generally produce or the seasons will tell you what you are going to do with it.
We are very proud with what we have created within Charred, It’s not just me it’s because of the staff that I have, without them it’s nothing, I’m very lucky to have them.
“We have lived in Orange for a total of four years, I love the produce, the people and the seasons. Probably in that order- *laughs*In my spare time I love mushroom hunting and foraging, just getting back to nature.”
I’m also very proud of my family, my beautiful wife and I have been married for nine years, and my daughter, she was born premature, at 28 weeks. She was 700 grams when she was born, and she’s a little fighter.”
